Curious, What does your day look like?

I am just curious about all these great post I see coming from many of you.  How do you all (Texans ya’ll) find the time?

My typical day.

  • 5:30 Wake-up kids, and family
  • Snooze till 6:15 (I need all the beauty rest I can get!) 
  • 7:15 Take kids to school
  • 7:30 Drop off kids
  • 8 – 8:15 Get to Work
  • 8:30-6:30PM I am at work (some where in there I manage to eat lunch)
  • 6:30 – 8:00 (I am at my daughters cheerleading, Sons chess club or what ever else he is doing)
  • 7:00 – 8:00 Eat dinner with family if time permits and talk about their day.
  • 8:00 – 9:30 spend time with the family
  • 9:30 put kids to bed
  • 9:30 – 10:30 Spend time with Wife.  (Yeah, one whole hour LOL)
  • 10:30 – 2-3 AM Code and catch up on blogging.  (If wife permits) :-)

I am curious for those with commitments outside of work how does one find time.  I myself some how manage to squeak in 10 minutes here and there on a post but I am curious how the rest of you all pull it off.

  1. Funny you should post asking this.

    Having a newborn I think my time to post will be limited. I usually start a post in the morning at work and finish it during lunch time, proof read it and then post it.

    It’s rare that I do one at home as I can’t find the time anymore to pull one off after I leave work.

  2. I usually get up at 8:30 or 9. Make it to work by 10. Work all day. Go home and code, study, and be an activist til somewhere between 2 and 4 am.

    My typical day.

    * 05:00 Wake-up (forget the kids and family…they get up after I’m gone for the day)
    * 05:00-06:00 Get ready for work, do some reading.
    - Sometimes I’ll play a computer game in the morning, but this puts the screws to my schedule.
    * 06:00-07:00 Drive to work, picking up breakfast tacos along the way.
    * 07:00-17:00 Work, usually skipping lunch. On rough contracts like my current one work may end at 21:00 and usually involves skipping dinner too).
    * 17:00-18:00 Go home or to user group.
    * 18:00-20:30 Spend time with family or user group.
    * 20:30-21:30 Eat and Read/watch TV (usually read).
    * 21:30-23:00 Try to catch up with email/blogs, but sometimes just fall asleep.

    I usually do most of my catching up with family on the weekends.

    I would say that I average about 4-5 hours of sleep but I catch up on the weekends. :-)
