A Day In The Life with Jen Bebb

Each day begins with a coffee delivery while I’m still in bed. Today it was my husband, but the boys take turns waking me this way too. They know I’m not a natural morning person, so they ease me into each day with coffee in bed and the time to read a few pages of whatever book I’m enjoying at the moment.

After 15 – 20 minutes, I head downstairs to join their morning routine.

As they get ready for school Steve helps Logan with his hair while Ethan prefers to style his own.

Logan gets a ride to the high school (he leaves at 7:30am) while Ethan and I hang out until he needs to leave at 8:30am. With the school right across the street, he walks everyday. He doesn’t know that I watch him cross the street from my office. I know he’s 11 and he crosses with the light. I can’t help watching out for him anyway.

Once the boys are off to school and Steve has left for work I get about an hour of work done before heading to yoga. After yoga, it’s a smoothie then 4 hours of uninterrupted work before the after school activities begin.

Today I needed to use both my computers. Most days I work at my standing desk, but I’m in the final stages of a new book so I’m writing on one computer while compiling images on the other. I go back and forth between these two work stations all day.

Around lunch I get a call from Logan – he’s forgotten his rugby jersey and is asking if I can please wash it and bring it to the school. He forgot his cleats too. Today is the championship game for the Grade 8 boys team and it’s clear he’s both nervous and excited about this afternoon. Since I have to wash his rugby gear anyway, I decide to tackle my overflowing laundry room.

At 2:15 Steve is home and we head up to the high school for the game. It’s a nail biter with our boys down 24 – 0 on our home field. They come back for a final score of 32 – 29 and the gold medal!

Logan heads to a local restaurant to celebrate with his team and we grab Ethan before joining him there. After an early dinner it’s homework time for Ethan and lacrosse time for Logan.

Homework done, Ethan relaxes before getting ready for bed.

Logan is home late from practice and we all head to bed a few minutes later.
