I've had a few people ask me what my daily schedule is as a professional blogging WAHM. Here you are. Keep in mind, though, that it's approximate. If there's anything any mom knows, the schedule almost always needs to be tweaked. Or thrown out completely.
Sometime between 5:30 and 6:00 am: Drag myself out of bed and head downstairs (in P.J.s) to the office. Sun Salutation to get me going, start looking at email and the news reader.
6:00 – 7:30: Working. Reading other blogs and news readers. Writing blog posts for corporate clients. In the meantime, Gavin gets up and gets himself dressed.
7:30 – 8:00: Get Gavin breakfast and get me ready for the day.
8:00 – 8:45: Try to cram in a post or two before leaving (8:15) to take Gavin to preschool and Josh to work. Take my boys to where they need to be and come back home.
8:45 – 11:15: Come back, get a glass of juice and a Fiber One bar for breakfast. Work, work, work on blogs and other freelance writing assignments until its time to pick Gavin up.
11:15 – 12:45 pm: Get Gavin. This time is used for running errands. Talk to Gavin about what he learned and did preschool. If I don't have errands, we come back and I do a little work (or social media stuff) while Gavin plays.
12:45 – 1:30: Lunch time!
1:30 – 2:15 or so: Gavin has quiet time, contemplating life or looking at books or even napping in his room. I work on what freelance writing project most urgently needs my attention.
2:15 or so – 5:15: Gavin and I play, read, do workbook and/or (now that the weather's nice) go outside.
5:15 – 6:30: Pick Josh up at the bus stop and come back. Get dinner together and eat.
6:30 – 7:00: Unwind and relax as a family.
7:00 – 7:20: Gavin gets ready for bed, family scripture study, bed time for Gavin.
7:20 – 8:00: Exercise time.
8:00 – 10:30 or so: Shower and then spend time with Josh until I fall into bed.
