Thursday

Thursday, May 31, 2012

*It's been pointed out to me that Firefox users are seeing my times wrong.  My kids don't get up at 2:66, but 6:00.  It's your browser...Get Chrome ;)


Thursday is my busy day.  It's grocery day.  Which means it's also clean and prep the food day.








  • 5:00 - cross train, pt exercises, shower, ice ankle
  • 6:00- kids up, get them their fruit and milk, start breakfast, feed monsters
  • 7:15 - get the kids dressed, teeth brushed, beds made, back pack packed
  • 8:00 - clean up
  • 8:15 - get the kids ready to leave, shoes, sunscreen, hats, back pack
  • 8:45 - bank
  • 9:00 - drop Paddy off at school
  • 9:15 - produce stand, gas station, Acme, Giant
  • 11:30 - pick up Paddy from school
  • 11:45 - home, unload car, get the refrigerated/frozen stuff put away asap
  • 12:30 - lunch for the kids
  • 1:00 - nap for the kids, lunch for me and a little peace and quiet
  • 1:30 - laundry in, put away the pantry items, wash all 30-40lbs of produce, cut and prep broccoli, carrots, celery, cucumbers, peppers for quick snacks, hard boil a dozen eggs, cook a pound of pasta for big salad night and for big salad at work Friday, portion out snacks, wash and cut lettuce and spinach for salads (I just keep it stored in my salad spinner), fold laundry
  • 4:00 - kids up, get outside for a walk, bikes, kickball, bubbles, whatever
  • 5:00 - put out dinner (Thursday is big salad night because all I have to do is put everything on the table and everyone makes their own salad)
  • 6:00 - dinner cleaned up, kids in the shower, jammies on, teeth brushed
  • 7:00 - kids in bed, do any miscellaneous chores, finally sit down and ice
If that's not a packed enough day maybe Friday
  • 4:00 - coffee run with friends (Yes, that's a.m., we meet, run, get coffee, walk back)
  • 5:15 - home, shower, breakfast
  • 6:00 - kids up, get them their fruit and milk, start breakfast, feed monsters, get the pizza dough made for dinner
  • 7:15 - get the kids dressed, teeth brushed, beds made, back pack packed
  • 8:00 - clean up
  • 8:15 - get the kids ready to leave, shoes, sunscreen, hats, back pack
  • 8:45 - work
  • 5:15 - home, get pizza made and veggies and dip out
  • 5:30 - pizza and movie night 
  • 7:30 - kids cleaned up and put to bed, finally sit down and ice
What is my point in sharing all of this?  Don't complain about not having enough time to exercise!  Just admit to being lazy, hey we've all been there, and do something to change it.  Yes, that might mean getting up earlier.

I always love seeing how other families work!! I especially love how you just stored your washed lettuce in your salad spinner. GENIUS!! I hate washing that thing and now I know to wash a ton of lettuce/spinach, leave it in there and wash it once or twice a week. YAY! Thank you!
