{The Daily Dime // August edition}

It's been a long while since I have joined in for The Daily Dime!! But, I thought it would be fun to recap a normal summer day before school starts back. But, I have to be honest and say that I did not remember about this link-up until around 11 am today {Tuesday}. Luckily, I am an obsessive picture taker and took photos of our morning anyhow!!


7:57 🌵 Wake up in a panic because I remembered that my co-worker had an appointment and I am going to cover for her while she's out. While I'm not late by any means {just have to walk into my office}, but I like to log in a little bit earlier since I'm working for two. So I get up, use the restroom, wash my hands, brush my teeth and go to my office. At that point, I was 13 emails deep in my co-worker's email and 11 in mine. I lit a yummy candle, put on my big girl panties and got to work! ha


10:15 🌵 Co-worker is back and now I only have to worry about my own clients and emails. I hear a bunch of ruckus in the living room and learn that Lexi is having a blast with her tennis balls. When we moved the couches yesterday we found several of her balls. She was so excited. A bit later I realize it's awfully quite and go to the living room to check things out. I see this...


Sweet girl was worn out but didn't want anyone to take her balls away.

11:30 🌵 Mason is hungry and asks for a lunch tray. He is such a fan of divided trays with random things in them. And yes I did bust out with the candy corn. I mean, if school has to start next week then I might as well get my fall on.


2:00 🌵 Mason asks me to video a short clip for his YouTube channel. I love to hear him talking on these videos. He is entirely too cute and sounds so grown and professional. How lucky I am to be his personal videographer.


2:10 - 4:00 🌵 work, work, work. It was a busy work day! I think August is always a busy time of year for us. Everyone wants to get their direct mail out before school starts. I better get used to the busy because I am about to be covering for my co-worker for 11 or 12 days! Yikes. Anyhow, while I worked Mason set-up shop in my office with the laptop. He said he was working, too! ha. Sure going to miss these days with him.


4:00 🌵 swept the house, organized my home office a bit, went through several backpacks of Mason's things {he packs one for every trip, but conveniently forgets to unpack them once we are home}, I also had bags from things like the Off-road expo and PTO expo and Bring Your Kid to Work Day that I needed to cipher through, let the dogs out, fed the dogs, preheated the oven for supper and then I organized all of Mason's school supplies for Meet the Teacher on Thursday. I shouldn't have done that. I sat there and balled my eyes out. How do I have a third grader??


5:03 🌵 Went outside to check the mail and saw this...



Somebody is a little excited for Halloween and Fall.

5:50 🌵 Finally sit down a minute to check my Ipsy bag out. It's okay. I got another brush they've already sent me, just in another color, a tinted lip balm, volume spray, a tiny tube of Mac mascara and a Trust Fund Beauty ligloss in the shade of Evil Genius. I don't understand why I keep getting dark red lipstick. #toopale I've adjusted my profile a couple of times, but I still get it. O'well. I'll find someone to give it to.


7:30 🌵 Nate went out to work on his and Mason's project and I played with the dogs for a while. I was cracking up over how Mason would beat Lexi to retrieving the ball. Then the little stinker wouldn't give it back to us. He just taunted her with it.



And that's a wrap on our Daily Dime {plus a penny, ha!}.
