My Typical Day

First of all, I don't usually have a 'typical' day! I'll give you one that is close though...
This is a weekday, not a weekend...which would be MUCH different. During the week, Mark and I only have 2 kids! Except in the summer...we have Mark's kids 3 or 4 days a week :)

6:20 a.m. - Hubby awakes.
6:30 a.m. - I hear my son Sam jump in the shower.
6:31 a.m. - I hit the snooze button and set the clock again for 6:55 a.m.
6:55 a.m. - I turn off my alarm and gaze at my husbands clock...which says it is 6:50. So, I feel I have a few more minutes to sleep...which usually means that I finally climb out of bed at 7:01. *Understand that I am supposed to get up at 6:30! (I'm not a morning person)
7:10 a.m. - Sam leaves for school and starts my car on the way (so it's warm for me). Gabe also arises at this time.
7:16 to 7:25 a.m. - I leave for work...assuming I start at 8 (which is most days). I kiss Gabe and Mark good-bye on the way! I usually feel like...well, you-know-what when I get up in the morning (due to the RA). I tend to feel better later in the day...
8:00 a.m. - Arrive at work. Start working....
2:00 p.m. or 3 p.m. or 4 p.m. - I leave work (one of my best moments of the day!)
At this time, I either go straight home, go shopping or go to a random appointment of some kind.
3 p.m. or 4 p.m. - Arrive home. I check on Mark and the boys. If Sam is at an after school activity, he needs to be picked up at 4:30 . Right now, it's time to rehearse for the school play...Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
4:30 p.m. -6 p.m. - Dinner is made and eaten at some point. We may get take out one night a week....
6:00 p.m. (or s0) - Depending on the day, we either have: Small Group (we bring Gabe with us), B-ball practice (for Gabe and I), or Awana/Oasis (at church). Thursday nights are usually FREE. We allow the boys to have video game time that evening.
8:00 p.m. - Finish up any homework, tidy-up, watch a movie, take a bath....
9:20 p.m. - Boys are ready for bed. Brush teeth...read a book...say prayers...kisses....GOOD NIGHT!
9:30 p.m. - Mark and I finally have conversation...and maybe spend some time together :)
10:30 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. - Bedtime for me!

There ya go!

Blessings!

You seem to have an organized "typical" day. I hope it's just as organized when you are in your blending family days.

I guess it is somewhat organized! lol It always seems chaotic when we're in the midst of it :)
Hope you are having a good day! Thanks for posting!
