So? What do I do with my time? well, I start my day between 6 and 7. 6 If I need to go out early and so need a shower early or on the two days that Spencer needs to be at school for 7:20. The boys need to be dragged (yes, your read that right, DRAGGED) out of bed at 7 a.m. I spend the next hour going from one to the other making sure they're alive, kicking (but not each other) and actually progressing to getting out the door on time (with everything they need for the day.) If all goes well, we all head out the door at 7:55 to do the school run. I usually arrive back around 8:15 when I can sit and enjoy my breakfast and the peace and quiet of the house. This is my favorite time of the day. I surf the net and enjoy my tea.
Between the hours of 9:30 and 2:30 I run errands, do housework, have various appointments and meetings, grocery shop, organize, reorganize, - you know, all the boring stuff. If I'm lucky, I get to spend an hour or two scrapbooking (with the exception of my play day on Tuesday when I scrapbook with my scrapping buddies for the day.)
2:40 I go to school and pick Cameron up and check his backpack to make sure he has remembered all his books, agenda, etc so he can do his homework. Matthew and Spencer are both walking home right now. Spencer stays late two nights a week for band practise and so on those days I go and pick him up at 4. Once the boys are home it is homework, practising, cleaning rooms, and running them around to their different activities.
5:30 I start getting supper ready and we are usually eating at 7. After supper is usually homework for Cameron as he needs one of us to sit with him and help him. The other two finish off their homework if they haven't already, and I try and reorganize everyone for the next day. Thursday nights is band practise night so we all head into Toronto, leaving home around 7 and getting back around 10:30.
Cameron takes so long getting into bed at night and he really needs his sleep to be able to be successful the next day, so he heads up at 9 and is usually in bed at 9:30 with me sitting outside his door to make sure that he's quiet so he can fall asleep in good time. (I really wish I didn't have to do this, but he needs it for a good night sleep.)
If all goes as planned I go to bed at 10 and watch an hour of mindless TV before I go to sleep.
That's it. That's how I spend my time.
Oh, and by the way ... when I have time I do projects around the house.
Here, finally, are pics of Cameron's recently redecorated room. He wanted to have a fishing lodge.
This is my work in progress right now. It is the main floor washroom. It's a very small room that was very white and very boring. Our goal is to make it look a little bigger and nicer to be in. So, we decided to change the vanity to a petistal sink. The problem with this was that there was no tile under the vanity which means we have to retile. So, this is how if looks right now:
