What Do I Do?

From The Challenge....If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question 'What do you do'?

I sleep, I wake, I drink water to start every day.
I stretch and exercise and do yoga every chance I get.
I eat.  Mostly healthy stuff but I also end most of my days with a mug of ice cream.
I dress, brush teeth, pack lunch, prepare my boys for the day.
I walk my kids to school.
I hug, as often as they'll let me.  Which, for now, is a lot.
I drink coffee and enjoy silence.
I blog, I talk, I text...I work at keeping in touch.
I clean and tidy and shop and cook.
I plan.  For weekends, vacations, Sunday breakfasts, baseball games, camps, getting together with friends.
I play with my boys.  I watch them play with their friends.
I comfort, discipline, support, teach.  I love.
I sit in the sunshine when it's warm.  I sit by the fireplace when it's cold.
I end every day with a book.
I say thank you.


  1. this was really sweet! and how awesome that you can walk your children to school! i hope to be able to do that one day :)

  3. I found your blog through the May Challenge Linkup. I use to do yoga and really need to get back into it. Happy to be your newest follower and can't wait to read more!


  4. Wow - you sound so serene Mary - It's wonderful to read. If I think back to what your day was like when you were working there would have been a whole lot of other lines in this post. Less lines is a good thing; restorative and important. My days are a whirlwind at the moment; it's just as well I am not doing the May challenge as I am just blasted with too much to do all the time! Ugh. It will pass - I am hanging on til it does. Lovely post though - I am so enjoying this series. Lou x
