 He leaves at 3am, so I spend from that time until 7am sleeping..lol. Then I get up and get kids off to school, go to the gym for 2 hours or so. Then back home for cleaning, laundry, etc

I'm a sahm, so along with taking care of my 8 mo, I clean, prep for dinner, call my family (we live over 1,000 miles away from them, so I try to call them once a day/every other day), do laundry (3 times a week), all while NCIS/House marathons play on tv. :)

I work as well, so on my days off, I catch up on reading, cleaning, laundry, etc, or I go out with friends, or just relax.

He works nights. So when he leaves we do homework, cook dinner, clean up and our night time routine. They girls are off to bed. I either do a few things, crochet, knit, watch tv, read, take a bath. What ever I feel like till I am ready for bed.

Extra time? What's that? lol

My S/O works a lot, sometimes 14+ hours a day. He's usually off for two days each week though. I cook, I clean, take care of my girls, study....there's always something to do, with 5 people living here.

What kin of work does he do? My hubby is gone for 30 days at a time and home for two weeks after each 30 day period. I keep up with everything as far as bills, our children, the house. I enjoy shopping and taking our girls to different places.

Sometimes I'm called in to substitute for a class. 

If not, I work on my homework, clean, play with the dogs, laundry, and I pick up my nephew everyday from school and play nanny until early evening.

When DH is at work, I go to class. After class, I go to my job.

 

A few days a week, I get a couple hours at home alone. I try to tidy up, but I also like to veg out - sleep in. watch Netflix. play some videogames. Sometimes DH complains when I don’t spend my alone time cleaning or cooking, but I’m pretty firm that I deserved down time, too.
