I've mentioned before about my struggle for balance in my life. So I thought I'd share a typical day just for poops and giggles.
6:00 - 6:30 Wake up - catch up on blog reading/commenting
6:30 - 7:10 Wake up my son; get him dressed, fed and on the bus
7:10 - 8:15 Wake up daughters. Direct their dressing, feeding, and school departure. Do my own showering, dressing, feeding and departing. If there's time left over I might do dishes or pick up the house a bit.
8:15 - 8:30 Drop oldest off at school, head to work.
8:30 - 5:00 Work, work, work. Fill in cute little boxes with cute little numbers and forward cute little checks to mondo investment companies. Jealous?
5:00 - 5:15 Drop day's mail at post office, head home
5:15 - 6:00 Help finish cooking dinner. Eat, clean up (sometimes we leave dishes til morning, but I'm always the one putting leftovers away)
6:00 - 7:00 check email; check kids' back packs, etc. Often this is prime chauffeuring time. Sometimes this is when I go hide at the library to write for a bit.
7:00 - 8:00 Baths, snacks, snuggles. When I do go to the gym, it's usually in this time frame so I can get home in time to tuck the little ones in.
8:00 - 9:00 Start ushering kidlings to bed.
9:00 - 11:30 AHHHH! The house is mine. When all else fails, this is when I get to write.
What does your schedule look like? If you had an extra three hours a day (why settle for just one?), what would you do with it? Personally, I would just like the ability to stop time so that when I'm on a roll writing (or cleaning or sleeping or whatever) I could finish up at my leisure without encroaching on the rest of the schedule.
Exercise: 25 mins. Half running on treadmill and half on the stationery bike.
Water: 9 glasses...yay!
Book: Cut some, added in 1,500 for a new total of 37665 - baby steps, but I'll get there.
I can so see me taking this to the beach (ahem, I feel obliged to point out that I live in Iowa and that there are no oceans anywhere near here so the 'beaches' to which I refer are lakeside)
