12. Describe a typical day in your current life.

I know this schedule is about to change dramatically, with Beckett so close to making his grand entrance, so I will be glad I wrote this down so I can longingly look back on the only SEMI-craziness that was my schedule before Beckett. This isn't every day but this is most days in our current lives.
