6:30 am. The alarm goes off. I had a great sleep, no "middle of the night warm milk mug" by my bedside. The kids are all awake, excited about school. I check my blog while they get ready. I am really only a reminder. "Do you have your snack? Do you have your lunch? Do you have your..."
7:00 am. We have a Bible and prayer time together. We will be going through Ecclesiastes this year as I think it is a good book for teenagers to learn about what is important in life.
7:15 am. They are gone. I start the laundry then have my own prayer time. I have breakfast and read a couple of sections of the newspaper.
8:00 am. I fill out a bunch of school consent forms and write out recipe cards for the Ladies Meeting on Friday. I thought it would be nice to do them by hand but it is taking a long time to write out 15 Cajun Cods.
9:oo am. Ah, it is a decent time to phone my pal, Mango. We talk while I do the laundry and take the dishes out of the dishwasher, reminiscing about the childrens' chores.
10:00 am. I get off the phone to write two more recipes out.
10:30 am. I do an exercise video.
11:30 am. I start today's blog!
11:55 am. The service advisor for our van phones and says the van needs a $698 job done. Sigh... I tell him that my husband will be home in 5-10 minutes, will he be there? Yes, he says.
12:00 pm. My husband is home. He phones back and gets an answering machine. Hmmph!
Ok, time to start lunch.
1:00 pm. Service advisor phones back, the warranty has expired. I am angry. I deserve some blog time.
1:30 pm. I get off the computer to wash the dishes, continue with laundry while talking to another friend on the phone. I am bothered by the van.
2:45 pm. Eldest comes home from school, excited to talk. Others follow soon. Snack time-popcorn and oranges. Chores are assigned. The youngest gets off easy- setting the table for supper. The middle girl is to clean all the mirrors and the eldest will make supper. I am still doing laundry and writing recipe cards (one more to go) but squeeze in time to read a blog.
3:40 pm. We go over the many school forms that say "review this with your child." They do their homework.
5:30 pm. I look at a couple of blogs while supper is being made.
6:00 pm. Supper is served.
6:30 pm. We leave for Bible Study. We are studying the book of Jude.
8:40 pm. The kids are making their lunches and getting ready for bed while I sit down to finish my blog of the day and look around.
So what do ya do all day???
