    Just kidding.

    They all come in at the same time, and then all go out at the same time.

    Constantly

    - pick up the kids at the sitters
    - drive everyone home
    - change, check emails and phone messages, sometimes AtoZ
    - start dinner
    - finish homework, get the kids snacks...
    - dinner (someone feeds the dog)
    - cleanup
    - hang out with Peter and the kids a while
    - baths, PJs, snuggles, bed for the kids
    - AtoZ
    - maybe TV
    - bed

    On Tuesdays the kids have Religion from 5-6, so things get a bit thrown off.

    I go to the pool and swim laps for an hour
    Check email, go on A-Z and other online things
    Make dinner
    Watch one hour of TV (I'm limiting myself)
    Read
    Watch a DVD in bed
    Sleep

    Sometimes instead of read I do work! I also am good at multi-tasking so I will be online AND watching tv.

    I don't have a typical routine. I pretty much always check my email/internet and eat supper. I go to bed around 11:00 and watch the news. I shower before that.

    In between those things I grade papers, do stuff for work, do things around the house, read, cross-stitch, etc.

    Check my email, catch up on news, read atoz and what to expect forums. Sometimes I will then work on lesson plans or grade papers. Between 5:30 and 6 feed the dogs (or else get followed around by 113 lb yellow lab who thinks he's going to starve to death...) and then eat my own dinner. The rest of the night is spent trying to stay awake until 8:30 - I'm 28 weeks pregnant and it's been this way for about 6 weeks so I'm sure pretty soon my goal will be until 8:)

    I come home, do a quick clean-up of the morning's mess, and lately make lots of wedding-related phone calls to set up appointments, etc. My fiance and I usually make dinner together between 5 and 6, and then I hang out watching TV with my laptop for a little bit. I usually shower around 9, and go cuddle with fiance until bedtime around 10 or 1030.

    Do you have joint custody of your bunny? Do you only get him/her on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday?

    Or maybe it's on a Skinner behavior modification plan....?

    How many of you get to go out to dinner and/or to the movies on a regular old weekday at least once or twice a month? It's important to break up the monotony.

    I haven't done it in a while.

    My BF & I like to browse the bookstore, grab some magazines/books, & look through them. We can be there for an hour.

    It really depends on whether I have class/staff meeting/etc after school. I typically wll eat dinner, run, talk on the phone to the b/f, and watch some tv. If he's off, we'll usually meet up for dinner or something. I'll also grade papers/read some manuals then too.

    My friends and I like to go out after school for an early dinner sometimes.

    And sometimes we need something more than dinner......

    I like Judge Judy the best out of all the court shows. I like how she barks at them. So many of them are just so stupid. I love that expression of disgust that she gets on her face many times!

    I work at the college until 9pm, so I don't get home till at least 9:20 (sometimes later, it depends, there's a person who, if I run into, is bound to delay me for at least an hour).

    When I get home, my uncle has the kids fed, bathed and in bed trying to keep their eyes open waiting for me to tuck them in. I do that, then clean out the kitty liter box, mutter in disgust that the kids have yet again forgotten to feed and water the cats, feed and water the cats, eat the dinner that my uncle has left out for me and continue with my atoz addiction (though I usually log in no later than 30 seconds after walking through the door.)

    I don't watch tv...ever. I own a tv, but that's for the gaming systems and sometimes DVD's, but rarely. In between feeding my atoz addiction, there's usually some project that needs attention. Tonight I'm baking a red velvet cake for my college bosses' birthdays tomorrow.

    My first year teacher schedule is making me cranky.

    Work at school (meetings and/or prep) til 5 or 6.
    Pick up girls at daycare onsite.
    Discuss on phone with husband who will pick up dinner and bring it home.
    Eat with family.
    Bath, bedtime routine for girls.
    Conk out.

    Bah.

    Today was different :) I had an MD appointment for one of my kdis, which was cancelled by the MD at the last minute. I was already in the car when I got the call, so I ... went ... HOME. I got home at 3:09. Wow. I cleaned up at home, moved some laundry through the cycle, graded spelling tests, made a home made dinner for the first time in a month of weekdays, took out the trash & recycling, and all of this BEFORE hubby called to see if he was stopping off for dinner. What a feeling to say, No, I made dinner! He was so happy.

    Since my wife and I are both teachers, we go home and generally veg...all night. Usually nothing ever gets done around the house. We're young and kidless though, so it really doesn't matter. It gets pretty crazy every once in a while, but that's just how we roll, I guess
