Mostly go with the flow. We have certain weekly activities but our time at home isn't scheduled.

We have a set schedule during the week that revolves around school, tutoring and extra circulars for DS. He isn't over scheduled, but he is active.

I homeschool, so yes...I have structure. We start school around 8:30 and go until 1 pm. Then, we eat lunch, I take the dog for a 2+ mile walk, then we are out the door between 4-5 pm for ECA or Church depending on the day. There are some days we have Homeschool field trips or something else going on as I get allergy shots every 3 weeks. I typically take my youngest with me and we do schoolwork at the allergist and my oldest does her work while we are gone. In between all of that is the daily housework, other errands, and of course making all the meals.

We have a "flexible" schedule. We're in limbo waiting to close on our house. We're about to be living in a hotel, lucky us. It will change dramatically I'm sure. Once were in the house though it's back to routine and a schedule.

When they were small and home our schedule was so set you could set a slow watch by it but since they went off to school it's go with the flow.

I'm more of a HW I think. I only have one child and he is 17. So my daily life and routine is pretty laid back.  I'm to the point that my days (when he's in school) are more about me now, doing what I want to do when I want to do it.

I do work in the evenings but I homeschool and have my children all day. I also do all the cooking and cleaning. I have to have a schedule or things don't get done.

I wake up pack lunches get everyone out the door. I spend the rest of the day playing with and breastfeeding my 8 month old. Get kids from school. Cook dinner for when dh gets home. Spend time with family then get everyone ready for bed. I clean throughout the day too. No set schedule. Some days there are sports or appointments, shopping or at school activities. I don't go by a schedule.
