I'm pretty anal about a schedule becase our day would quickly fall apart if there wasn't one. I have a HECK of a lot to cram into 24 hours...
5am - Wake up, shower, start breakfast, start laundry, unload last nights dishes from dishwasher, water garden (if it's the summer). Work on on-line class-work.
6am - Wake kids, referree as they fight for the shower, look for clean clothes and missing homework. Put dogs and cats outside. Feed animals. Feed kids. Finish laundry. Clean kitchen after breakfast. Pack lunches.
7:00 Peek at computer if I have time. Lets pets back in. Round up chidren.
7:30 am - Leave to take kids to school. Head to work by way of Starbucks.
8:15 - Arrive at work.
12:00 - Lunch break, check out VB
, e-mail Froggy, get some lunch if I remembered to pack it. Walk several laps around school track if it's not raining.
3:30 Leave work. Pick up kids at school.
4:00 Get groceries or any number of items needed for the next day - items for the school science project, 12 purple pipe cleaners, dog food, whatever...
4:30 Arrive home: Do chores, grab a VERY fast dinner...
5:30-6-ish - take kids to: Soccer, Basketball, Karate, Tutoring, Christian Drama Club, Church Youth Activities, Children's Choir, Mini-Scouts or
7:00 - Arrive home. (Often other parents will drop my kids back home from the various activities they're in)
Clean up from supper as much as there's time, help with homework, peek in on VB
, do yet another load of laundry, clean one room of the house (so it's not all left for the weekend). Take a walk/bike ride if the weather's nice and it's not the dead of winter and pitch dark.
8:00 Read to my kids. (All of them, no matter their age. They still love to be read to.)
8:30 Tuck youngest in bed. Head older ones off to the land of MORE homework.
8:30-ish Talk on the phone to Froggy as I continue the last of my chores, make food for tomorrow's lunches, fold laundry and get on the computer to relax for a bit, work on online classwork and then get ready for bed...
11:00 - ? Get to bed, sleep if I can, or get back up and read, surf the internet or watch TV 'cause I can't sleep (like now...).
