Wake up to a chilly morning (fall is coming!).
Stumble downstairs. First thing, drink a whole glass of water. Then pour coffee and feed the cat (Bangles).
Realize the sausage I need for breakfast is still frozen in the downstairs freezer, since I was too lazy to get it out the night before. Go downstairs to get it. Leave the basement door open, so Bangles comes too. Chase Bangles and bring him upstairs.
Start getting ready...wash face, brush teeth, vitamins, makeup, brush hair. Search for hair clips.
Make breakfast: Three scrambled eggs and sausage. Refill coffee and sit down to eat.
Get dressed. Pull my coaching coat out of the closet. Pack skate bag.
Head to the rink. Drive without the radio, because I really, really need quiet mornings.
First one to the rink! Take my inhaler, jump rope, stretch, and off-ice jump before lacing up.
Step on the ice! About 10 minutes of warm up, and then my lesson starts and we work on moves in the field. I have a half hour lesson, so I use the remaining bit of the hour-session to do freestyle.
Learn to skate starts! I pull on two extra jackets and start coaching.
Get off, pull off skates to stretch feet. Lace up again.
Get on the ice for my second session. Focus on freestyle, run my routine twice.
Get off the ice, unlace, and stretch out for a bit. Walk out to my car, intending to buy a coffee and then head home.
Spend way too much time jiggling my key because I somehow locked my ignition. Ask hockey dad for help. He gets it first try. Drive straight home, do not buy coffee because I'm worried I'll lock it again if I turn the car off.
Get home, make coffee. Also make lunch: nut granola with almond milk and raisins. Sit and talk to Mom.
Decide that I should probably be getting ready for work. Change, wash my bangs out and style them, grab a new pen for my smock pocket, pack food.
Leave for work. Eat a banana on the way.
Punch in. It's busy, so in the first hour I bag for several people, give a lot of voids, make change, jump on my own register to get the lines down, ring for someone so they can use the bathroom, and collect baskets.
Head to lunch. Carrots dipped in almond butter. Go through the smocks, and discover that the new ones came in! With a size small! So I ditch the XL I've been wearing and put on my new one.
Punch out. Buy almond butter and Larabars.
Get home. Chill on the coach with meatballs and Netflix. Eat a yogurt. Read some blogs.
Head upstairs. Get ready for bed. Clean off my bed. Journal a bit.
What are your September Saturdays like?
Happy Tuesday! xoxo
