My summer schedule is as follows:
7:00 – 8:00 – wake up, get dressed, have breakfast (bran buds sprinkled with cinnamon), read news, heat Klara’s milk.
8:00-8:45 – Klara wakes up, I give her the morning milk, get her dressed, and take her to daycare.
8:45-9:45 – I go either to the gym or to an appointment (dentist, HR, pedicurist, periodontist, somebody who needs me at work, etc).
10:00 – 12:00 – I work on my research.
12:00 – 1:30 – I eat lunch and cook.
1:30 – 3:00 – more work.
3:30 – I pick Klara up, feed her, and we go on an adventure (the bookstore, the gardens, the neighboring subdivisions, etc).
7:00 – N comes home and we read to Klara together.
7:30 – 8:00 – I bathe Klara and N puts her to bed. Putting her to bed used to be a long and arduous process but now it takes about 3 minutes.
8:00 – 9:30 – I read and N does the dishes and watches his program.
9:30 – N and I enjoy each other’s company.
Of course, on the days when Klara is at home, the schedule is dictated by her two naps and includes no gym, appointments, or work.
