My son's 19 months, and it's only been the past three weeks I've been able to stick to a routine/schedule. We get up around 8 am, he spends time with Daddy before Daddy goes to bed (he works nights) then we eat breakfast. I check my email while he plays with toys, and then we eat lunch. After lunch, we go to the park (unless he's super impatient, we bring lunch with us to the park) after the park, we come home, mommy cleans house while baby eats a snack, and watches tv or plays with toys, and then we eat dinner, then spend time with Daddy before bed. Bedtime he gets a snack, we get into jammies, read a story, and then off to bed.
The only thing that worked for me was knowing how much better off he'd be with a routine. Try setting an alarm clock for specific times so you know you need to do something, or write down a schedule you want to follow, and them force yourself to follow it for a few days, you'll get used to it soon.GL
