Hey guys, it’s me, Crystal. I’m taking over “da blog” to share with you what a typical day looks like for me. I’m not very good with blog intros, so I’ll just get on with it.
7:00 AM: Brrrrring! I awake to the sound of my very annoying, very loud alarm clock that literally has you shaking when you wake up. It’s not a good feeling, but I’m stuck with that stupid clock. Grrrr.
7:45 AM: By this point, I’ve showered, selected a cute outfit, and done my hair and makeup. Oh, and I’ve yelled at Lindsey to get out the bathroom approximately 17 times. Sigh. #sisterproblems
8:00 AM: It’s off to the kitchen to get myself some breakfast. I typically like to have toast with raspberry jam, pancakes, or a fruit smoothie. What I don’t like to have? OATMEAL.
8:30 AM: It’s time to start school. I am homeschooled, so I do all my work in the office in my house. Fortunately, it has a door that locks, so I can have some privacy. I like to start out with my favorite subject, French. Grace helps me practice my French quite often, as she has been to Paris. I would love to go there someday with her. Grace and I get along quite nicely, because we have a lot of the same interests. Like France, French, and things made with sugar.
11:00 AM: I’ve been doing schoolwork for several hours now, so I take a quick lunch break and go for a walk. I take Morgan, Coconut, and Chocolate Chip with me. Morgan talks my ears off about dogs and agility training the whole time, but I don’t really mind. The leaves are bright orange and sticks crunch under my feet as we walk along. It’s very peaceful and nature-y.
12:00 PM: I get back to schoolwork. I only have a couple of hours before we leave the house for our afternoon activities, so I have to work quickly.
2:00 PM: Emily, Molly, McKenna and I head to gymnastics practice. McKenna is the only one who does gymnastics, but we like to watch her and her friends do their cool tricks. McKenna only falls off the beam once during the whole practice. She’s very pleased with herself, so I give her a big hug once she has washed the chalk off of her hands. I do NOT want to get THAT on my clothes.
4:30 PM: As the oldest in the family, it’s my responsibility to have dinner ready for everybody. Tonight I’m making a beef and veggie stir-fry. It’s all-natural and very healthy. Plus it tastes good, so i’ts a win-win.
6:00 PM: Molly, who, believe it or not, is the second-maturest in the family (next to me of course, despite the fact that she’s also the second-youngest) helps me with the dishes. I wear rubber gloves so the hot water and dish soap won’t ruin my nails and skin.
8:00 PM: I take a bubble bath (again, I have to yell at Lindsey to just GET OUT) and read a fashion magazine.
9:00: I pull on my pajamas, brush my teeth, and climb into bed. It’s been a long day, and I have to get up tomorrow and do it all over again. Crystal, out.
