Daily sched in our new home

When we started living on our own, my life had a huge change as well as my schedule and my responsibilities. Not complaining though as I love managing a household. When we moved, Kurt is on his kindergarten in CSA, morning schedule. On a weekday our schedule is as follows:

Mondays: this day is different as my car is on coding. I wake up at 5:15 to take a bath then at quarter to six, I wake up Kurt, give him a bath and change him to school clothes. Once done, Kurt would wake up the dad if he's still not awake then he takes over as I need to leave already. By 7pm, I'm on my way back to house. Upon arrival, have dinner, teach Kurt with his school work then take him to sleep. When he's already sleeping I go down, cook food for the next day then work. My day would usually end at midnight.

Tuesdays to Friday: the difference is that I don't have to wake up earlier to take a bath, I prepare Kurt then when his school bus picks him up, I do either of the three: 1. go back to sleep if I've already cooked the lunch and dinner for the day the night before, 2. prepare for work if I have to be in the office early, and 3. cook if I am too tired the night before that I was not able to cook.

Also during weekdays, I already plan the menu for the following week, I have to be done by Friday because by Saturday, we go to the grocery.

I learned during the first week that it's hard to go to the grocery with no list and no idea of the food to prepare the following week I ended up going to the grocery everyday just to buy the ingredients for the food I have to cook.

It is harder but I love what I'm doing. All this extra chores are nothing compared with the freedom of living on your own.

Next on my post, the schedule I designed for the helper.
