School is out but that doesn't mean I have free time. It seems like I never will.
Here is my daily schedule:
Kids are usually asleep when we wake up but not all the time.
5:30 - Get up, take a shower, make coffee, and do hair and make-up
6:30 - Husband gets up to pick up the babysitter (who lives 4 blocks away)
6:45 - Pour coffee, get lunch, head out the door to train station (which is 6 blocks away)
6:59 - Train leaves the station, open up book and drink coffee.
8:05 - Arrive at work (if trains are on time)
Work, Work, Work......
4:50 - Leave my desk, go to trains (I have to take anywhere from 2-3 trains to get to work and back home again. My commute is about 1 hour and 15 to 30 minutes each way.)
6:20 - Get home kiss the kiddies and start dinner. Hubby is not home yet so kids are screaming and tired and all the while I lock them out of the kitchen.
6:40 - Daddy gets home but has to drive the babysitter back home.
7:00 - Dinner ready, Daddy's home. Eat in seconds
7:15/20 - Put Vinni to bed.
8:00 - Put Marley to bed.
8:15 - clean up the house, do dishes, get bottles and stuff ready for when Vinni wakes up, make lunches for the next day. Vinni sometimes wakes up and stays up for a while so we do this while holding her at times.
9 - 9:30 - Go to bed.
We really don't have time to watch T.V or even talk to one another. We are so drained that we can barely stay awake.
On the weekends we have so much to do that we are running around but on Sundays we try to make it all about the kids and we try to take them to museums or just out to run around and of course it really depends on the weather. But when school starts of course this all changes because I have to go into another town to go to class. My Mother or a friend usually will come downstairs to my apartment and watch Vinni while hubby comes and gets me at school (which is 45 minutes from my house). He usually takes Marley but sometimes he is forced to take both of them. We usually get back to my house around 9:45 depending on traffic and whether or not the class runs late or what have you.
UGH! It is rough but I tell myself that it's all wroth it!
