Anyone have a schedule down yet?
September 11, 2013 at 11:14 AM

My "Typical" day.....(it's never typical, LOL)

7am - get up

8am - breakfast

9-9:30am - school

12-12:15pm - lunch

1-3:30pm - school

3:30pm - 6pm - Activities (Karate, Social Group, Play Group etc)

6:30pm - dinner

7-8:30pm - Family time with dad

8:30 - 9:00pm - Bedtime Routine

9 - 10pm - School Prep and Time with Hubby

Of course, there is a lot of multitasking thrown in there. Somehow, I manage to do laundry, clean, pay bills, make phone calls, do paperwork, take care of animals, go to appointments, go to therapies and every once in a while I manage to get a "me" moment.

    Schedule, what is this 'schedule' thing?  LOL, no our days are all so different I haven't really gotten a schedule together.  As long as we get everything done, I call it a win.

    LOL kmath.

    It's like the mythical "leftover wine" I read about on Pinterest. What is that?

    But honestly, I've never been good with schedules. They make me itch. :) I have a To Do list, DD has a To Do list, and we get stuff checked off as we go. Mostly.

     LOL, yeah that about describes it perfectly.  We have the To Do lists as well, sometimes we get through them and if we don't we just add it to the next day.  We are pretty good about staying on track for school.

    My schedule usually looks like this:

    7am: Drive dh and dd to subway

    8am-9:30am: Gym

    10am-10:45am:  AM cleaning routine (laundry, dishes, bathroom, beds)

    12pm-3pm:  Academics with ds (Math, Lit, Hist, Geog, Sci)

    6-8pm:  Activity with ds (scouts or martial arts)

    10pm-10:45pm:  PM cleaning routine (dishes, stove, counters, kitchen floor, quick pickup)

    Once a week I grocery shop, once a week is a field trip with ds, and once a week is a lengthier morning cleaning session (with dusting, windexing, changing sheets, swiffering the other rooms, etc). 

    I'm extremely Type-A and cannot function without routines, schedules, and lists.  Thankfully, I don't push that onto my kids, lol.  We were very successful unschoolers at one point - I just kept my lists to myself.  :)

    Wake up at 8

    breakfast at 8:30

    start school around 9

    i let my son decide the order we do his subjects unless its Tuesday or Thursday..... He has civics those days from 9-10:30ish (his teacher always goes a little over, which I'm completely fine with) 

    Lunch is thrown in their whenever we get hungry

    we work until all school is done, some days it's 2:30 others it's 5, we've even had a few days that we were done by late lunchtime.
