What are my priorities?
1. To have a morning quiet time
2. To be sure all of my husbands needs and wants are met
4. To home school my children 2 1/2 hours a day
5. To keep a clean and orderly home.
6. To get enough rest
7. To exercise daily
8. To keep up with this blog
So how am I going to squeeze all of this in every single day? I have a plan – I call my plan – my daily schedule. The reality is life happens and I will not be able to stick to this schedule perfectly – but my schedule is my guide and it keeps my priorities a priority.
So here is our Back-to-School Daily Schedule:
6:30am – wake and have my quiet time
6:55am – post my blog (which is written the night before), email the Good Morning Girls, Check Facebook – post a status, read my favorite blogs.
8am – make and serve breakfast – read the Bible with the children while they eat their breakfast
8:30am – Do morning chores along side the children
9am – School begins
10am – free / play time for kids while I exercise
10:45am -School time
11:45am – prepare lunch
12:00pm – Serve lunch
12:30pm – free/play time
1:30pm – finish school work for the day
2:00pm – kids rest time/room time while I check email, Facebook and blogs
3:00pm Snack and television time for kids – while I do housework
4:00pm – free time / housework
5:00pm – make dinner
5:30pm – serve dinner
7:30 – Story time
8pm – bedtime for kids
Chill time for mommy / Write the next morning’s blog
9:30pm –10:30pm– time with my husband
10:59pm – bedtime (my goal is to go to bed while there is a ten on the clock and to get up while there is a 6 on the clock – this guarantees 7-8 hours of sleep every night – 7 days a week)
Through out the week I will insert different activities for the children such as baking together, swimming and gymnastics lessons, flag football practice, women’s Bible study group for me and other fun things like play dates and trips to museums.
