8:00am I make myself a cup of coffee and eat breakfast
8:15am-9:00am clean up after myself, empty dishwasher from night before and head upstairs to start the 1st of a few loads of laundry. I make the boys beds and walk around house picking up toys, dishes, etc left by family night before after I left.
9:00-10:00am I finish folding and putting away laundry, put out karate uniforms or swim suits(depending on day of week), lay out pajamas for showers later and let dogs out.
10:00-11:00am organize playroom, kid bedroom closet, pantry, kids dresser drawers. (these are done one per day every 2 weeks)
11:00-11:45am strip bedding on boys beds. (this is done once a week). Days this isn't done I usually get to relax. Although most days I am still finishing up laundry from before.
11:45-12:20pm head to the school to check child's blood glucose, administer insulin and make sure gets what he is supposed to eat in cafeteria.
12:20-1:00pm head to grocery store, Walmart or CVS to pick up groceries, meds etc for family
1:00-2:30pm arrive back at house, eat lunch, start preparing dinner for later, let dogs out, get karate or swim bag ready and on "bedding day" this is the time I will go up to finish making beds and put away the bedding I had washed and dried earlier.

3:00-3:15pm go downstairs to set up table in kitchen with homework packets, pencils and books
3:15pm head down to bus stop to get boys off bus
3:25-4:00pm home, boys put away shoes and coats, empty backpacks, grab a snack and sit down to do homework. Twice a week one child stays after school for band/activity so other 2 work on homework for about 15 min before we head out to pick up the other child at the school by 4pm.
4:15pm boys change into karate uniforms and child who stayed after school works on their homework
4:45pm boys sit down to eat an early dinner

6:45pm arrive back home, boys put shoes/coats away and head upstairs to take their showers. I put away karate bag and get T1D child's lantus (night time insulin) injection ready.
7:00-7:15pm boys finish up showers, give child injection, and give boys a snack.
7:15-7:45pm boys get their half hour electronic time (tv, ipad or computer). This is based on having a good day. If they had a rough day this time is used to read or play.
