Greetings again, Chaotics!
I'm sorry this is late. Last week was...well...chaotic.
Last week, I had given you two(or more) websites that had templates I used to try at menu planning and keeping a schedule, as well as the two websites I found that gave a general idea of what a Stepford Wife's schedule should look like.
I did attempt to follow their schedules. However, as I mentioned before, both websites failed to mention homeschooling, and with us starting a new curriculum...yeah. The schedule pretty much went to pieces by day one.
So, after two(ish?) weeks of refining it...I think I have a schedule that currently works for me. Granted, it varies according to the day we're talking about, but as I said...it works *shrugs*.
Here is my schedule for today. This is an exception day because my husband was home due to the holiday.
5:00 AM-Wake up, start dishes from night before
5:30-start breakfast(breakfast this morning-sour cream coffee cake)

9:00-shower, dress, hair, makeup(yes, I know I'm late on this. I was going to do it as soon as I woke up, but then I wouldn't of had time to make hubby breakfast...and he prefers my cooking over my make up lol).
10:00-11:30 start daily cleaning task(today: wash one kid's bed sheets, move and dust the DVD/VHS shelf from our bedroom back to its original spot in the living room, clean Master bathroom and bedroom)
