It was 'natural' to my body's wishes ... Sleep midnight to 8am. Workout and shower. Get to studio/class at 10am. Break for lunch at noon. Work a couple more hours. Go relax late afternoon until dinner. Around 8pm I'd go work for another 3-4 hours. That was the life.





Well don't feel too bad, for awhile I was going to bed at 9:30-10pm and my mom was like "what are you an old lady?"

A "routine" day for me would be something like...



2pm-wake up, have coffe/breakfast, wash/dress

3pm-11:15pm - work

11:15pm-12am - tea, computer, watch news

12am-1am - prepare and eat dinner

1am-2:30am - chores, laundry

2:30am-4am - computer, emails

4-5am - reading/movie

5am-2pm- Bed....Zzzzz



Though my weekends, are way different! Not much Routine!

I'm sure your Mom works hard too, this is just what works for me - believe me, there are plenty of times I sit on the couch with a cup of tea and think "I need to get my lazy BUTT back on schedule!!"



But for the most part I work so much better with a schedule that we all stick to.



It'd be interesting to see the ages of some of you - I think as you get older/have kids/job responsibilities/rush hour traffic/more mature priorities/etc you settle into more of a routine, your body needs less sleep and you get up earlier, AND you have many more responsibilities so you HAVE to get up earlier to get everything done.



I would LOVE to sleep in, but there's no way I would EVER have the time, that's what vacations are for.

Here's a typical day -



6:10 - up, get daughter up for school, coffee, read paper online, breakfast, feed dogs

7:30 - studio work (painting)

10:30 - exercise (usually a run with the big dog)

11:30 shower

12:30 lunch, household chores, gardening, bills

2:20 - Kelly home, errands, appointments, start on dinner, walk the Chihuahua

6:30 dinner

7:30 - email, homework help, TV

10 - 10:30 read in bed with a glass of wine



Actually since I work for myself, my days vary quite a bit. This would be a most typical scenario, though.

ehr.



When I have a lecture at 10.15 I normally get up at 7.40 and leave at 9.10 to take the bus at 9.20. Then I stay in the city for a while after lectures/seminars... unless I feel like going home - or have a reason to go home - at once. I go to the library pretty often to pick up books/CDs/DVDs. I wander, and look at stuff, and stroll around in malls and the city, always listening to music. If I know I'm going to be away for a while, I bring a lunch. Otherwise, I bring a banana or some such thing, and eat as soon as I get home, normally in front of the computer.



Things have been pretty erratic so far in the semester, classes have been cancelled, others haven't started yet, and some I've missed. So I still don't really know what my week is going to look like. I'm pretty sure I have one or more double lectures/seminars every day though.



I know there's supposed to be some studying in there too. well... I read, here and there, though I haven't done any of that (the curricular kind, that is) so far. oops.



These days I rarely fall asleep before 3 am, or 4 am. That's something of an improvement, for since December or so I've usually fallen asleep between 4 and 6 am. When I don't have to get up at a set hour, I usually get up somewhere between 10 am and 2 pm, or sometimes later than that.



I eat dinner with my family at 7. The exceptions are Tuesday (when my dad is away) and Sunday (where we don't do a proper dinner); then I eat on my own. I make about every other dinner we eat together.



If I'm at home when my mother comes home from work at 4 pm, I usually prepare her a sandwhich (normally avocado sandwhich), a glass of juice and heat a cup of coffee. I also empty the dishwasher in the afternoon, or in the morning, if I have time.



I watch TV at 6 pm most weekdays (20-minute culture/entertainment "news"). I also watch Idol on Wednesday and Friday nights at 8 pm, and Six Feet Under every Friday at 11.15 pm. Sometimes I watch other things too, but nothing in particular.



Tomorrow I know I'll have to take the bus at 11.20, and leave ten minutes before that. Hopefully I'll manage to get up at 10 am. I have a seminar from 10.15 to 12.00.



[yes, I am very lazy and unstructured. no I don't get much done despite a great amount of free time. I consider it a good day if I've spent a few hours reading. And by reading I don't mean studying.]

Hmmmm...my schedule. Up at 6:30 for running. Come back, make coffee, shower and wake up my daughter just after seven. Around eight we leave for school. I work with children all day...there is nothing...ummmm...routine about that. Every day is different. In the evenings, we come home and recently we've been deciding who will make supper. Daughter may play outside, and I will either cook, spend some evening time outdoors, read or get on the computer for a few minutes. Talk on the phone for a few minutes. Dinner is generally served around six, homework is after that...this often requires my help or presence. After that we might play a game or go for a walk or just hang out. Straigten up the house a bit. Bedtime starts between eight and nine with all the preliminaries and then reading and songs. After she goes to bed, I do other stuff...read, watch tv, clean up, talk on the phone, etc.



We do try and do out of the ordinary things frequently (on weekends) to break things up. I want to do some camping again this year.

6:15 AM - Wake up

6:30 AM - Get out of bed and get dressed. Either pack lunch or grab a fast breakfast if I have the time.

6:50 AM - Leave to catch the bus

7:21 AM -Start classes

10:30-11:15 AM - Lunch

2:21 PM - Classes ends

Either 3:30 or 5:00 PM - Leave school (depends on the day of the week and what I have to stay after school for). Occassionally I get to go home right after school, but that's pretty rare.

Either 3:40 or 5:10 PM - Get home, have a quick snack and start homework

6:15 PM - Make and eat dinner

6:45 PM - Procrastinate, finish homework, go on the computer, read

10:30-11:15 - Take a shower and try to get to sleep



Depending on the day of the week I have some random other things I have to do after school, but that's my schedule on the less busy days.

Well it depends on the day and if I have to work what my routine is, but here's the general idea.



7:00 a.m. wake up

8:00 a.m. leave for school

9:00 a.m. to anywhere between 1-4 p.m. at school

1-4 p.m. leave school

4:40 p.m. leave for work if I have to work that night

12 a.m. leave work or spend the night at work
