Guess grass is greener on the other side
I loathe winter and the only season I like is summer!
Hi nice thread,
I wake up at 6 a.m but since it's online school this year I get to sleep an hour late so I get up at 7 a. m. Then have my coffee wake up my elder kid whose classes start at 8. I give her milk and then by the time her classes start I go down for a walk or cycle to get some vitamin D. I come home by 8.45 then wake up my younger kid whose classes start at 9.
I will monitor her from kitchen by the time I prepare bf for all. Both kids have different break times for bf so I make it ready by 9.30.
My husband wakes up and he goes down for a walk by that time. Maid comes at 11 so I prepare the lunch and keep it in hotpack. She will take atleast an hour to complete all chores. In between I need to be present for both kids during their classes. Younger kid classes get over by 12 for elder it gets over by 3.
By that time I call my mom daily and speak. Recently lost my dad so whenever possible I call her and speak. 1 to 2 is lunch break for them. So we all eat together. I make sure that atleast one meal should be eaten without any disturbance like mobile or tv. Husband has totally different time for bf and lunch. So thats a seperate schedule. I eat with kids and then relax for a while. I read kindle for a couple of hours. Then in the evening I go down with kids for cycle or throwball we all play together. Evening again coffee and dinner prep. Then night after dinner husband calls me for a stroll. So I go down with him that's the only time we get couple time so we both don't want to miss it.
We come home he starts working again I browse for a while chat with friends. Then sleep by 11.
If schools begin I will have an extra work of picking and dropping kids at school. That work isn't there now.
Move down to south once your kid moveout. Enjoy endless summer.

8am - pack lunch, have breakfast and off to work
9am to 5pm- work.
6pm- have tea
8pm- dinner time
9 to 10pm- some me time (social media, whatsapp msgs etc)
10-11pm - couple time with husband just chatting or discussing anything important, watch something together for short while.
wow..busy life nice
How cool & simple your daily life is. You are blessed.
My routine would be as follows :-
6.00 am - wake up from bed, brushing & morning duties
6.30 am - Make Tea/coffee/milk for family members as they want. Lemon + honey mix for myself. I store their Tea/coffee/milk in their hot flasks & take mine to the balcony to enjoy sunrise & birds singing in the morning.
7.00 am - Kids & H wake up if they have school/office during weekdays. But during this pandemic times, they sleep till 9.00 am.
If they wake up, then my times would dwell around them, like helping them to bathe, eat, get ready to school etc.
But these days, I calmly prepare our breakfast while listening to music.
8.30 am - Starting from kitchen, then ground floor and varanda (huge space) cleaning is my duty. My husband will clean the first floor & the office space in the second floor. In total we have a 3 story house with 11 rooms, 2 big halls, balcony etc.. With the absence of maids these days, cleaning is a huge responsibility that we share.
My mom will water the plants in the garden during this time. We have a helper, who does the garden cleaning work though.
In the meantime both myself & H would assist for kids on- line classes.
11.00 am - Take bath
11.30 am - Breakfast. Since i follow IF for weight loss, I follow 15:09 fasting window; thus consume only a glass of milk as breakfast at 11.30 am. I relax a bit for few mins in varanda in my swing & quickly go through my FB & insta during this time
12.00 - We (I & H & mom) would go to kitchen to prepare our lunch. Here it is always an elaborated lunch menu with one non- veg curry, 2 veg curries, one fry (non veg), and one salad with brown rice. We share the cooking duties among us, including cleaning & serving.
2.00 pm - Lunch with family
2.20 pm - Resting again while watching TV/news or books
3.00 pm - Office time. I work as per Geneva Time and on my own virtually.
5.00pm - Tea break. Mom will serve us tea /snack during work time
6.00 pm - Walking time. I & H would go to the beach & walk for 1 hr. Some times we take our kids too.
7.00pm - Prayer time.
8.00 pm - Quick dinner. Mom & I would prepare a quick dinner or mostly we buy from outside.
8.30pm - Kitchen cleaning & closure. TV time for mom & H at their respective rooms.
I & kids will just relax in the couch & chat
9.30pm - I & H will quickly follow up on our family business before bed. If i have any urgent things to attend at work, I would stay a bit late to complete. Else read @ Kindle or browse internet till I fall asleep.
11.00pm - Bed time.
During weekends, I sleep till 9.00 am and we don't follow the time, no cleaning, no office, but mostly lazing around in the couch with TV or movie.
And go out in the evening for relaxation.
