    Smile What does your daily schedule look like?

    I just wonder what everyone does daily...

    I get up at 6:00, daycare kids start coming at 8:00, get all school agers to bus by 8:45, then back home with rest of kids, do my housework at nap time, they leave around 6:00pm, then eat dinner, and hang out.

    Ms Louise - *whew* I am exhausted just reading about your day!
    I get up at 6:30, get myself ready and my boys up at 7, we leave for school at 8. When I get home, my daughter and I play, hang out, watch TV, read, etc till about 10. (Sometimes I'm online while she watches TV - like right now!) I might clean during this time, or just sit. I usually do one "major" household job a day. She has a snack and then she goes down at 11 or so for a nap. I might scrapbook, or read or do a quiet job (dust, laundry) while she's sleeping. She usually wakes around 2 or so, and then she eats again, and we get the boys from school at 3:15. The rest of day is me refeering the boys, making dinner, taking kids to practice, etc........ The kids go to bed around 8, and hubby and I relax till about 10 or 11.

    Course, that's an at home day. Grocery shopping might be in the AM.....you get the picture...

    4:45 wake up
    5:50 my 14 yr old goes to bus stop
    6:50 my 9 & 10 yr old to bus stop
    around 7:30 is when my 3 yr old generally wakes up and I eat breakfast with her
    from 8 to 11 time is spent cleaning, playing with my dd and visiting my online groups
    11:30 we eat lunch
    after lunch dd and I read and play a board game
    she will usually nap from 1-3 so I use this time to study whatever I need to for my classes
    14 yr old gets home around 3
    9 & 10 year old get home around 4:30
    start dinner
    after dinner is homework with 3 older kids and baths
    after that kids usually get around 30 minutes to watch tv or play a video game
    then we start sending kids to bed, I clean up kitchen, do some more studying if need be, play a couple of games of spades online
    The evenings I have classes I start dinner then leave and dh handles the evening routine. Not sure how my routine will be next semester, will have 3 onlines classes and 2 classes on campus. But this is pretty much my day in a nut shell.

    6:00 - 7:00
    ~make a hot breakfast for DS, DD, and DH
    ~Make lunches for all three of them
    7:00-7:15
    DH takes the kids to class and goes to the office. I see them off and then walk my dog.
    8:00 - 8:30
    I come in check my e-mails, read the paper online and stop by a few websites.
    8:30-9:30
    I check my glucose level, take three shots and a few pills.
    9:30 - 10:00
    I am in bed again, falling asleep by 10:00 and napping for a couple of hours.
    11:30-1:00
    Re-check my glucose levels, take another shot, walk my dog again and make myself some lunch.
    2:00-3:00
    If I need to run to the store, want to get out of the house, etc...
    3:30
    come home, re-check the newspaper website for any updates, check my e-mail, and stop by a few websies. Glucose and shots.
    Mail has come, I check it and take the dog out with me.
    4:00
    I start dinner - if I don't feel like cooking then DH or DS will do it when they get home.
    4:15
    DH comes home with DS and DD.
    5:00
    We eat dinner and start our nightly errands. DS takes care of trash, DD does the dishwasher, DH starts the laundry. Glucose and shots again.
    6:00-8:00
    Then we are all off to baseball, football, basketball or volleyball practice on every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday nights and some Friday nights.
    9:00-9:30
    Glucose and shots again.

    ***Wednesday the kids have church - grandparents pck them up at 5:30 and take to church. We pick them up at 7:30.

    ***Fridays are a little different. I pick them up from class at 12:30 and take them to the place where all the kids hang out (not a mall or movie theatre - it is a safe place that is supervised)if there is no ball practice. Drop them off by 1:00 - take them a burger at about 6:00 - and pick them up by midnight or 12:30. If they do have ball practice, we pick them up from the hang out at 4:30 and drop them back off after practice.

    ***DH and I go out and get a bite to eat, shop or just take a nap until we pick them up.

    OOPS, I just realized this was in the stay at home moms thread!!

    I am not a mom, nor do I stay at home.

    No wonder I thought my schedule looked a little "cush" to you guys!!

    I got tired and needed a nap, just reading your schedules
