your daily routine
In the last few months I have been somewhat of a regular visitor to UB. Though I know how much most of you love your cars, I am a little curious about what my UB brothers daily lives consist of.
Mine is a basic one that mainly involves work, wich on some days doesnt end tillI go to sleep. On the days that things go well at work I spend the remainder with my kids- I know most of you, if not all of you are kid-less.
My favorite thing to do, other than my wife is watch my Edmonton Oilers play. Thats hockey to you who dont know who the Oilers are.
My car is right there with hockey, but usually during the winter months right behind it. Not because I like my car any less than hockey, but because I dont have a heated garage.
Weekends with my family dont really get too exciting, unless my boy says something that can get me in trouble. Like, "that guy is fat", or "I thought you said fuck was a bad word" ha.. Ill never forget that one.
When the kids go to grandma's, my wife and I turn into Billy and Sarah from the Headstones song, "smile and wave". We like to party once or twice a month with other peole in our situation. We go out to dinner quite often, or end up at friends houses or have lttle get togethers of our own. It can get pretty crazy at our place sometimes. Not college party or one of claptons party's crazy. But, you know, my 30 year old buddy ridding my daughter bike down the street in his underwear crazy.
How 'bout you guys.
4am: Study time. Working towards an AS in Respiratory Therapy. If I'm not studying, I'm out running . . yes, even in 10 degree weather.
5am: Log on to UB.c & Bimmerfest. 2 large cups of Cafe Bustello.
6am: Get my mother out of bed, make her exercise, and make her breakfast. She suffered a stroke a couple of years ago, and has Alzheimer's. Lives in my house, and I share responsibilities with my sister, taking care of her.
7am: Get ready for work, in by 8am.
12pm: Come home to make lunch for me & mom, check UB.c for the latest.
4pm: Out of work, hit the grocery store for things I need, then of course, pass by Target for gratuitous shopping. Or I'll go for a run if I was studying that morning. Make dinner while watching the local news, followed by ABC World News Tonight (gotta support the local girl, Elizabeth Vargas . . she's from Paterson NJ).
Free time after that, play games w/ mom, a movie on the home theater, or maybe get together with the gf. Always have UB on the computer off to the side somewhere, he he.
Beyond that, I'm usually in bed by about 9-10pm. I don't go out much; I'm pushing 40 this year, so I've slowed down quite a bit. On weekends, I'm usually under the hood or under the car. If not, I'll get lost somewhere on my road or mountain bike for a few hours. Then there are the constant home improvement projects going on. It's not like this all the time, but if I had to describe a typical routine, it'd be close to this.
i get up arround 10AM, take shower, eat something , arrount 11AM I sit on my PC, turn the TV on, work until 9 or 10PM, if i have nothign to do at work during the day i play with my dogs or go out and drive a little bit or play some videogames or take the boat and go fishing, my day ends arround 2AM(usually being online unless im out doing something)
