What is a typical day in your life?
By no means has the last couple of weeks nor will the next couple of weeks be typical because I just recently had hip surgery BUT
before all the chaos my typical day was sleep until 10 or 11, drink coffee in bed until about 1. Get up, get ready for the day, clean the house, around 4 start on dinner (and continue to clean if need be). My youngest gets home at 4 so I'm also helping with homework... Depending on the day DH and DD get home from school and work anywhere between 5 and 7... And then also depending on the day directly after dinner off to the sport of the day for the children. DS in bed by 9, DD in bed by 11/11:30 depending on the day and how late dance kept her, and thenin bed by midnight with DH.. I usually stay up and read because I suffer from night insomnia and usually at most sleep for 4/5 in the morning... On a bad day, I sleep for only 2 or 3 hours.
Have coffee and get my son something to eat. Get us both dressed and go outside and feed horses, llama, cows, outside dog, and cats. Then go feed chickens, ducks, geese, and guieana hens. Collect eggs. Feed dogs inside. Clean eggs. Start laundry or dishes. Sit down for second cup of coffee around 9:30 or 10:00 in the morning.
Work, get kid off to school, gym, work, clean house, relax till hubby gets home, start dinner, clean up dinner, work, watch tv, go to bed.. repeat. lol. That is a typical weekday.
Wake up, take nasty medicine, wash it down with a cold can of root beer, eat peanut butter toast while skimming Cafemom and facebook.
Wake up son and remind him to eat breakfast. Take girls to school and walk dogs.
Get started on school work with ds. Handwash clothes between each subject. Pick up youngest dd and take her to lunch. Come back home and finish school work with ds. Make lunch. Take 1 hour break.
Pick up oldest dd from school/walk dogs, help kids with their chores, pick up house. Go to Rec center so the kids can get snack, help youngest dd with homework and play board games/puzzles, ect supervise oldest dd's homework. Go to park afterwards.
Come home, get started on dinner, eat, wash dishes, pick up house, put dry clothes away. Supervise teeth brushing, read stories, tuck in bed. Make dh dinner, collapse.
Mon-Fri I work so I am up at 5am. Bathroom, then make the coffee, wash Jack's dishes and feed him. (hes my kitty lol) Then I get dressed and play on my laptop til 7. Then my ride comes at like 7:15. Go to work. Get home about 1:45-2:00. I always put my pjs on from the night before. Cuddle time with Jack, if Anthony is home Ill hang out with him a little. Then the rest of the evening I will maybe do a load or 2 of laundry, play on my laptop, make dinner, eat dinner, etc. then I take a shower (or if Im cold or if I feel like it Ill take a bath) put on fresh pjs then the rest of the night Im relaxing and talking to my fiance, etc.
Sometimes I have a dr appt after school on wed or sometimes my fiance wants to go somewhere. Just depends. On weekends I just do whatever. Sometimes Im busy and other times not but I always spend time with my fiance on weekends. We usually go grocery shopping and go hang with some friends. All depends. Like this coming weekend I have 2 baby showers. One on Sat and one on Sun.
