Working from home can be as hard as working in the office. Although you are in control of your working environment, I still think that a daily timeline should be managed wisely and followed, especially if you are a mom. Here’s how my day goes…
Wake up. Get myself ready before the bathroom gets occupied. I have my two girls and nephew who go to school, all at the same time. We have to leave the house by 6:30 AM.
By this time, I should be dressed up and made up.
Time to check my personal emails, and social media.
Check on the kids and remind them to speed up or we won’t reach on time. Yep, I do this every single day, without fail.
Load their school stuff in the car.
Drive them off to school.
By 7:00 AM, I’m normally home unless otherwise, I need to swing by to the bakery to get our freshly baked pandesal.
Up to 8:30 AM, I watch Umagang Kay Ganda, check emails again and notifs, lay down, have my coffee/breakfast etc.
I start work.
Turn the TV on and tune in to Magandang Buhay.
Lunch break for like 15 mins.
Back to work.
Finishes duty at work. Leave the house and pick the kids up from school. While at school, I ask them if there are things that we need to buy for school requirements, without fail.
Normally, by 5:30 PM we are all home.
Check on the kids, if there are home works, projects, and the likes. Guide them if and when needed.
Usually, after dinner is my playtime with my baby nephew and bonding time with the kids, then off to bed.
9:00 PM onwards is my usual ME time. Kids should be asleep by 9:00 PM, by hook or by crook, whether they like it or not. This is when I do my blog, respond to personal emails, watch on Netflix, spend time on YouTube etc.
REPEAT. Except for the weekends, where we would normally get up a little later than the usual and go to town.
I’m sure you’ve wondered, why are there no household chores on my timeline? Just lucky to have a housekeeper who does almost everything during weekdays. I turn my housewife button on weekends only or if/when needed. Besides, the girls are big now and most likely can do things on their own.
How about you, as a WAHM, what is your daily routine?
