Working from home and homeschooling my children means that I must have a schedule. It is imperative for me to be able to stay on task if I hope to accomplish anything. Here is a look at my day (or the way I hope for most days go):
6:30 – 8:00 a.m. – Wake up, dress, have coffee and my quiet time. This is my time to get ready for the day ahead and spend some time with The Lord.
8:00 a.m. – Wake the kids. This takes some time. The kids are like their mama. They enjoy their sleep. After they wake up they dress and have breakfast.
9:00 – 10:00 a.m. – Chores and daily pick up time. I am working on a home management binder little by little so that the kids and I can get our house in order. I allow flexibility here because this changes as the seasons of life change.
10:00 – 12:00 p.m. – School work with the kiddos. This is the time that we spend doing our formal work. We are eclectic schoolers and spend a lot of time learning doing hands-on things that cannot be scheduled.
12:00 – 1:00 p.m. – Lunch and clean up
1:00 – 3:30(ish) – Is the time I set aside to work. In all honesty I work off and on throughout the day. If not I couldn’t get things done.
Hubby gets off work at 4:40 so we have supper there after with family time to follow and some nights I work through the evening.
There you have it! This is how I spend the bulk of my days. Just like life, things happen and some days are just thrown off course. I am not tied to these times but it is basically how the day goes.
