Life is just so daily! (Thanks ME)

So, I'm totally copying my fun friend Sandy, and making a daily journal/scrapbook for the month of June. I want my ancestors to be able to look back and see what a normal time period was like for our family.
.
The scrapbooks hit all the highlights, but so often it is fun to look back and know what people actually DID with their time - and how much a gallon of milk cost - and how often they went out to eat and where.
.
Because I would love to find something like that about my grandparents, I figure maybe someday a grand kid will find it fun to know about us. I'm taking pictures of everyday stuff, and keeping a short journal of our daily happenings.



Here's where we're at so far:

6/1/09
  • Chance dentist - 1 filling.
Milkshake after dentist

  • 1st day of Summer vacation for the boys.
  • Matt is off to training for the week at Fort Lewis.
  • Lunch at Southpaws with Matt and Darla
  • To the bank to cash a couple checks for my Father's Day stash
  • Wal-Mart shopping trip

6/2/09
  • Meeting at Basin West branch first thing in the morning
  • Garden tour and lunch for the office gals with Mr. Jensen



  • Chance's last baseball game - he was chosen by the opposing coaches for the MVP ball.
  • Dinner with mom & dad at China Buffet - less than impressive (the buffet, not the company)
  • Sent Matt a Fed Ex package with his Cabela's gift card so he could shop at the BIG Cabela's near Fort Lewis.

6/3/09

  • Took boys to Tina's (should have this on every day)
  • Off to work
  • Chance to dentist - 2nd cavity filled
  • Colton's last baseball game
  • Dinner with mom & dad at Chico's - MUCH better! (Thanks for making it to both last games, you equal opportunity grandparents, you! Love you!)
6/4/09
  • Boys to Tina
  • Regular workday - 10 AM Web training for new A/P system
  • Lunch with Darla and Lola at one of our favorites - Michael's

  • Power outage at work - got to leave 1/2 hour early
  • Pick boys up for a rare evening at home
  • Matt is home!!
6/5/09
  • Boys have a stay-at-home day, since Matt is off
  • Leave a couple chores and head to work
  • Try to get some billing caught up
  • This is what my desk usually looks like


  • Bethel Church brings lunch - fundraiser for youth group - yummy enchiladas
  • Talk to Krista regarding sign we are building

That's it! So far, anyway. A week in the life. Soon to be a month in the life. We'll see how it goes. . .

I'm going to LOVE reading this, Heather. I'm so glad you posted your desk. I've always tried to envision your set-up . . . to no avail.

We had the milkshake/cavity thing, too!
