{It's a Typical Day Project} - Pamela

Hello everyone, my name is Pamela and I blog over at Pamela's Heavenly Treats where I make desserts that are healthy for you!  I am a wife of 16 years to a wonderful man and mama of 6 kiddies, 5 boys ages 15, twins 13, 9 and 6 and 1 baby girl 2 1/2 who are the loves of my life!  My life is so hectic, but I wouldn't change it for anything, I will try to share it with you!

~A typical day in My Home~

5:30am I wake up to get breakfast made for the kiddies, listen to my praise and worship music and read my bible and write in my journal, my oldest wakes up at 6:00am, and is downstairs by 6:20am, and then my twins are coming down to eat around 7:00am, and then my 3 little ones come down around 8:30am !

9:00am I clean the kitchen, and start homeschool (somedays we start homeschool at 7:30 or 8:30, I homeschool my 9 and 6 year old, we have been homeschooling for 5 years and I love it.

I try to get a load of clothes in the washer, start the dishwasher, clean the downstairs bathroom, while they are doing their seat work.  

What's good about my week is that my hubbie comes in on Monday morning from work, and he is here all week, and goes back to work on Friday until Monday morning!  So he is a great help doing the week.  He takes care of J while I homeschool, that's a plus for me!

It varies with the time that we are finish homeschool each day, mainly we are done before lunchtime, thats a good day!

12:30pm Lunchtime for the 3 little ones, I make lunch, clean kitchen!

1:30pm If its not too cold, the boys go outside and play, J sometimes goes out with them, if she is not napping.

2:30pm I start dinner, if I have meat to put in the oven, I prepare that to go in the oven so it can be ready for dinner. 

3:00pm - 5:00pm I try to sit down for a few (LOL) and watch a little TV, but 9 times out of 10 that doesn't happen.  I also have to go get twins from band practice at 4:30pm so then I might stop in at the consignment shop or library!

5:30pm eat dinner, clean up kitchen (all the kiddies have a chore in the kitchen, so it gets cleaned very fast, which is great)

6:00pm-8:00pm family time, shower time, study time, get ready for the next day!

8:00pm family prayer time, and kiddies off to bed! 
8:30pm Hubbie and I do our insane workout for 35 minutes
9:15 shower, go through my email, relax with hubbie until my eyes close LOL

Now my day is not like this every day, we also go to the library during the day, and on Tuesday we have homeschool co-op in the afternoon!

I also have a small cupcake and cookie business where I have a couple of orders during the week that I have to fill, and I also donate my treats to different organizations around my town.  So I am always in the kitchen baking!

I hope you enjoyed my It's a Typical Day Project

Please go tell Pamela hello and follow her blog.  She has become one of my best friends and favorite people here in blog land.  Her heart for the Lord is beautiful and she is an inspiration to me.  I love you girl! XOXO
