"Day 6" of the blog challenge
Now that we have had one full week of school, I actually have a typical "day" that sounds more productive than the willy-nilliness of the summer days.
5:15 am Big Daddy wakes me up
5:23ish I actually get out of bed.
5:25 Wake the kids
5:30-6:00 make coffee, let dogs out, feed/water cat and dogs, make breakfast, pack lunches, make sure everyone gets dressed/brushed/combed
6:00-6:10 drink coffee, watch news, count minutes until everyone is gone
6:12 Kiss them GOODBYE
6:15 Pour second cup of coffee
6:15-7:00 Enjoy coffee in silence with dogs/cat piled on my lap while watching news.
7:00-3:25 What.Ever.I. Want.
My usual routine has been a general straightening of the house, starting laundry, writing at least one article, working on a short story that is due next month, then reading.
3:26-4:00 Getting the lowdown on the day. Monitoring snacks and arguments. Wishing I had taken a nap.
4:05 Consider running away
4:06 Try to come up with something suitable for dinner.
4:15 Start the "whatever I touch first" game and cook random foods.
4:30 Answer the phone and talk (read: listen) to Big Daddy give me a run down of his day so we have nothing to talk about for the rest of the evening
5:15 Put "dinner" on the table
5:45 Clear the dishes and clean the kitchen
6:00-9:00 Veg in front of the TV
9:01 Prepare to finally go to bed
9:05 Start the "If I go to sleep right now, I'll get X hour(s) of sleep," game while making sure Big Daddy stays on his side of the bed because he makes the bed feel like an inferno.
11 ish- Finally fall asleep...
Lather, rinse, repeat
