Hey! My name’s Julia, I live in Greater Chicago. This pleasing to your ear name is very popular among residents of Chicago’s neighboring villages. I’m a programmer, a development lead. Usually, programmers don’t have very much to show because their days are all boring and look all the same. However, I work on a new project now so I have something interesting to share.
I’m going to show you my Tuesday because on Tuesdays it is my husband who takes care of our kids and I can work for a bit longer than usual.
I forgot about my plans to photograph my day when I got out of the shower! That’s why my face is like this.
I want to tell you more about myself. I’m 38 and I’ve been living in the States with my family for 19 years. I’m married with 2 children. My husband specializes in retail trade.
When I woke up, my older daughter had left for school (my younger is just 21 months old so she slept with me). I also remembered that I had to bring my car to the service.
It looks like I have a lot of clothes but it’s impossible for me to choose what to put on!
I wanted to put on these beads (a present from my friend) but they didn’t match.
My daughter Elizabeth made these cupsfro us and we use then every morning.
Usually, it is my husband who makes coffee in this family but today he’s gone.
I had to worn my employer that I was going to be late.
I took this book with me in hope I would be able to read it in the car.
My husband has prepared this lunch for me. It’s Italian soup and pieces of bread. He’s so sweet!
By the way, we live in the country so it’s impossible to do anything here having no car.
I usually take some water with me.
I use a hands free system to talk on the phone while driving because they will fine you if they see you talking on a regular cellphone.
That’s my village.
This is Lake Arlington. We sometimes come here to roller skate. This place is usually full of joggers, bikers and pedestrians. In winter, it’s almost empty.
A couple of more photographs of the neighborhood.
I pass by ULTA again! I have to go there to buy some makeup but I never do!
Here it is.
They want to charge me $670 for changing all four wheels but I have just one that really needs to be changed! I have to get out of here.
It’s not really cold today.
With one wheel of my car spare, I knew I could not go faster that 50 mph so I had to keep right.
What a shame!
The popular Sears Centre which hosted so many events!
My exit. They will charge me for entry.
I pay for entry with my Ipass. Those who have cash have to pay twice as much.
It’s 10.35 which means that I’m not going to the gym today. Usually, I go to the gym three times a week (you didn’t think so, did you?).
That’s the bridge where I spoilt my wheel.
Actually, my office looks much better. In the summertime, it is surrounded with flowers and there are ducks in the pond… it’s boring in winter though.
This is where I work. That flower is a present too.
I don’t want to go into details concerning my work…
My husbad’s worrying about me and my car.
The building where my office is situated has a gym, a laundry, a hair dressing salon and a car service. My husband asked me to go down and find out how much they charge for their service. By the way, he found out that I didn’t really have to change the wheels of my car all together!
I decided to walk for a while while waiting for information from the service.
It must be a great place to have a bite today!
There are a lot of different stores here!
You can find almost anything here!
I payed just $10 for these two towels.
I work on the third floor so I decided to use this staircase (to compensate for not going to the gym).
I have 15 minutes to have some soup before another meeting.
Our project manager is waiting for another report.
I made some camomile tea and got down to work.
I decided to skip the meeting because I had a lot of work to do.
I received a piece of bad news about my wheel.
I called to a Russian car service and they promised to fix the tire. Then I returned to work.
Then my husband called and said that he was under the weather and his father caught cold too and that he could not bring our younger daughter to his parents. What a crazy day it is!
I got some food at a nearby store.
I told you I had a lot of work!
Heading home. Elizabeth decided to skip her gymnastics today to stay with her sister. Usually, she trains 5 times a week.
I stopped by at a store to but some medicines for my husband and milk for our daughters.
See those balloons? St. Valentine’s Day is coming up! But that’s not about me…
This is what I need!
Buying some milk.
What a strange sign…
This is what I got in that store.
One more photo of the store for you.
When I left the parking lot, it was…
Then I visited my mother- and father-in law but didn’t take photographs there. The time you see is when I returned home (we live close to each other).
My daughters. The younger one asked the older one for some water.
The kids refused to have dinner at their grandparents’ so I had to make something quickly.
I was so tired that I decided to have a glass of wine and some cheese for dinner.
When Elizabeth learnt that I was photographing my day, she grabbed the camera and started taking photographs of me!
Doing the dishes.
She’s helping me with cleaning!
I have prepared two bottles of milk for this night to feed my daughter.
I guess you understand whose room it is.
That’s Busya’s room (I call my younger daughter Busya). I didn’t take photographs of my husband because he was sick and looked bad.
Liza painted this for Busya’s lamp.
It’s time for my daughters to go to bed…
And for me to work.
Liza took this photo of me working in my pyjamas.
Thank you very much for spending this day with me.
By the way, my report was Ok, my husband got better and those Russians fixed my tire. So life’s good again!
