Day In The Life with Cayte

Sports Life Daily

Hey Everyone! I'm back. Well kinda. I have the amazing and wonderful Cayte taking over my blog for the final installment of Day in the Life Sports Edition. I recently found her blog during the final months of the baseball season. I'm also glad I found her because she is in VA. So enough of me babbling on how great I think she is because that will come for another day. 

Hello Jessa Olson lovers!

Thank you for stopping by today and reading all about my exciting baseball life. My name is Cayte and my husband plays professional baseball with the Cleveland Indians.  You can follow along our crazy life at Blog With The Browns where I blog about anything from my weekend trips to see D.J. play baseball to my weekend crafting activities! 

Unlike Martha Kate from the previous A Day In The Life series, I do not have the privilege of traveling with my husband wherever the team takes them.  After we got married last September, we both knew that it would be best for me to remain at my full time job.  Considering we had just bought a house and I had only been at the job for about 3 months, we knew this would make the most sense financially and for my professional career.  

So my typical day during baseball season looks something similar to this..

6 a.m. - wake up, let Stryker out, workout, shower, and get ready for work
8 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. - work
3:15 to 4:45 p.m. - volleyball practice (right now I am coaching middle school girls volleyball. When the season is over, I work from 8:30-4:30)
6 p.m. - cook dinner for myself or go to my parents and mooch of their food ;)
7 p.m.- turn the game on my phone to listen.  I usually watch tv while I am listening unless D.J. is pitching and I actually pay attention.  I tell everyone there is a difference between paying attention to a game and watching/listening to a game!
10 p.m - wait for D.J. to call me, talk for 10 minutes, then go to sleep!

Since the team D.J. was on this year was close enough for me to make weekend trips, the weekends looked similar to what a "normal" baseball lifestyle would be like. Waking up at noon, having lunch dates, and finishing the day off with a baseball game and staying up till the wee hours of the morning!

During the off season, it takes a while for D.J. to get back on a routine of going to sleep at normal hours and for me to get used to having my husband back, but I wouldn't have it any other way.  Some wives can't understand why I don't travel with my husband and sometimes I had to admit, I wonder that too.  Then I remember how much D.J. appreciates the work I do at home to keep our house clean and updated as well as provide a stable income for our family.  Until he gets that most sought after call up, we will continue to make it work how we do! 

Hope to see you all follow along as readers soon!
