Proposed Schedule

School starts next week and it has a new start time, so I’m in the process of figuring out our new schedule.  Last year school started at 8:35.  I could drop off the girls as early as 8:15 which allowed me to get to work by 9:00, but now school isn’t going to start until 9:05, which means I can’t drop off until 8:45, which means I won’t get to work until 9:30ish, and won’t get home until 6:45ish.  That sucks.  6:15 to 6:30 was already way too late.  But soon my work group will be moving to a new location 5 minutes from home (AHHHH!!!! I’m SO excited!  More on the that in a future post) so then I’ll be able to start work at 9:00 and end at 5:30 and be home by 5:35 or 5:40 (unless I walk, and then I’ll be home by 6:00ish.  Still way better).  But in the meantime, here is our proposed schedule:

7:00-8:00 – I get up and get ready
8:00 – Get the girls up, they get ready, eat breakfast
8:40 – Leave
8:45 – Drop off at school
9:30 - Arrive at work
6:00 – Leave work L
6:45ish – Get home LL
6:45 – 9:00? – Eat, clean up, make lunches, next day prep, help with homework if not already done and facilitate showers/bed time routine and nightly reading
9:00-9:30 – bedtime for girls, or at least the cut-off where they have to be in their rooms and quiet and leave me alone :)
9:30 or 10:00 - 10:30 or 11:00 – “Me” time, and hopefully all of the above will already be done but I know it won’t always be. Last year, even with the slightly earlier schedule I sometimes wasn’t “done” until 10.

They will have soccer practice on Mondays and Wednesdays (through mid-November), so on those days they will have dinner around 5:00 and leave around 5:50 for soccer.  Sometimes I will go straight there after work and pick them up and then go home and eat dinner and other times I will go straight home and eat dinner while sending Paul to pick them up.
