OK, I really want to know how some people do it? How can some people work a full day of work, keep a clean house, look gorgeous, and still present a beautiful, home-cooked meal? Do they just never sleep? Because, really, I'm exhausted 90% of the time, and I'm not able to do most of that. Let me give you a run down of my daily schedule:
4:30 a.m. Wake, shower, get dressed.
6:00 a.m. Arrive at work
12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. Lunch- I stay at the kennel to answer phones over lunch, so it's only a break in the sense that I get to eat and the dogs are napping.
7:00 p.m. Kennel closes. Sometimes I'll stay and have dinner here, other times I'll run errands.
8:30-9:30 Kennel night shift.
10:00 pm. Home and bed
4:30 a.m. Wake, get dressed
5:15 a.m. Meet running buddy for a run
6:30 a.m. Return home / shower
8:00 a.m. Arrive at work
For the rest of they day, see Scenario 1
7:30 a.m. Wake, shower, get dressed, have breakfast
8:30 a.m. Take Hans to work
9:00 a.m.-12:00 pm Run errands / clean / do tasks that I don't usually get to do
12:00 pm-2:00 pm Lunch (often with Hans
2:00 pm-10:00 pm See Scenario 1
Scenario 3 is, by far, the easiest scenario. The problem is, if I'm lucky, I'll get that scenario twice a week. Generally, though, I have about 500 errands to run and not enough time to run them. So, what gets sacrificed? Well there are a few things:
-Other workouts (aka cross training)
The cleaning we can sometimes take care of by having Hans go home at 5:00 while I stay at the kennel, and for the cooking we have a toaster oven at the kennel we can use. Of course, this means that none of our meals are delicious, home cooked meals, but eating pre-packaged fish or chicken nuggets is still better than eating out. This works until we run out of groceries. When that happens, we're then stuck trying to figure out what to eat when there's nothing in the freezer. It kind of stinks.
So, I want to know. How do others do it? Can you see some time in there that I'm missing? Should I not sleep in in scenario 3? Should I stay up a little later? Really, I'm looking for any help that anyone is willing to give.
