    Monday, huh. That is a naughty word in our house. lol My Monday (or everyday) starts at 5:30 when my 2 year old decides he needs to wake up, have a cup of milk and watch cartoons. (Little Einsteins or Team Umizoomi) My dogs need let out and fed. My cat also thinks that she needs food. Picking up the house and getting my husband out the door. Then get myself and the babe ready. Breakfast made, dogs put in kennels, babe to daycare and me to work. Work is lovely on Mondays. I work in Health Insurance and that doesn’t rest because we are not there. So catching up from all of the weekend activity is on my Monday plate. Leave work at 5. Pick up my little monster (he loves to act like a monster so it is a nickname full of love). Get home and get him situated with milk, dogs out, play, read or whatever my little love needs while cooking dinner. Bath, bedtime stories and snuggles. Cleaning up the dishes and house. I normally have the laundry caught up by Monday. Then FINALLY mommy time. That is always the same, me with a book. Depending on the week I am also paying bills, going to the store over my lunch break, posting book reviews, taking care of whatever the husband needs done and getting in my time on social media. Really its all in a days work and I absolutely love it!

  5. Melissa Ann says:

    I wake up at 6 am with my youngest daughter. Lay out all the clothes for both my children … Which might not seem like much effort but finding matching socks is like a archaeological dig. My girls make their own breakfast but it almost seems not worth the effort when I have to remind them 10 times to eat and get dressed. I make their lunch which luckily monday isn’t a Litterless lunch day. But they need a water bottle, a sandwich and three snacks. I then lay out their outdoor clothes … Which sucks in the Canadian winter and walk them to school. When I get back home, I work at the office in our home until lunch time, filing, setting up appointments, faxing and scanning and photocopying. After this I clean the house, write, post, etc. at 3:15 I pick up my kids from school. Make supper, help with home work, clean up. Later I put the kids to bed, write and get the posts ready for the next day and if I have time … Read. That’s a typical Monday ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great day !!!

  7. Kimberly Billings says:

    My Monday starts with letting the dogs out. Then I pack and it’s off to the airport to go wherever my work takes me that week. It’s a full day of business travel with all the delays and craziness that comes with air travel. Then it’s to the hotel and catch up on emails and whatever else is going on.

  8. Sydney H. says:

    My Monday start around 6am when I get ready, then take 10 yr old to bus, back to give 4 and 3 yr old breakfast then off to pre-k and daycare for them, then I start work doing payroll plus whatever else needs to be done remotely. if there are errands or dr appts then they get done during the work day.

    Geez, not only do I have to live through my Monday, but you want me to replay it for you?! Be warned, it’s not pretty!! So…..
    1st I wake up way before the asscrack of the day at 3am. Then its getting up my two cranky children to bathe and dress. Then I do some magic, by getting myself dressed and cooking for them at the same time. Ya, it gets a bit risky. After becoming somewhat decent, I gather all that is needed for their day and mine and haul it all in the car.
    2nd I have to endure a horrendous half an hour drive while trying to stay awake. The kids sleep while I struggle to keep my eyes on the road.
    3rd I drop the kids off at daycare and break all sipped limits to get me some coffee before heading to work.
    4th is enduring 8 miserable hours in a high risk institution which houses some of the most dangerous men on Earth. Only allowed 2 short 15 minute breaks and lots of paperwork.
    I then am released from work to rush and either pay bills or do any shopping needed all in the 45 minutes before I have to pick the kids up.
    I again pick my bundles of joy up from school and daycare to once again cart them home.
    5th when we are home I redress them for being at home. And again preform magic by getting myself redressed, helping with homework, and starting dinner.
    6th once dinner is done we eat, the kids get to play or watch tv while I prepare for the next day. Then both kiddos get bathed and dressed for bed. Once my babies are down for the night, I do the dishes, clean the house and either indulge in some reading or help conquer the cyber world for my favorite authors

    5. Get the kiddo to school
    6. Drive to work and get there by 8:30am
    7. Work my full 8 hours
    8. Drive home from work
    9. Come home and cook dinner for the family
    10. Clean up the kitchen after eating dinner
    11. Get the kiddo a bath before bed
    12. 9pm I get to relax and do some reading.
    13. 11pm I’m in bed trying to count the Z’s

    So ya my schedule is not like the others that I have read.

  13. Jen G says:

    What does my Monday look like? Well…first I have to get 4 boys up and dressed. Breakfasts made and lunches packed. There are a lot of good allergies in my house and cold cereal just doesn’t do for them. They want hot brecky. There is usually a fight or two, sometimes they are physical (3 of the boys are preteen and teen the other is a toddler). I have to say at least twice “give that back to him” and “no you aren’t wearing that”. Then it’s time to drop the oldest off at school and head in to work. I usually have meetings on Mondays and they tend to drone on for a while then it’s get 12 hours worth of work done in the remaining 6 of the day. Finally I can leave there and come home. Once home, Mondays are boyscouts / cubscouts and there are therapists in my house. (My 11yr old is lower functioning autistic and my 9yr old has aspbergers). So off to scouts with therapists in two we go. Drop the older one off at his meeting place and off to the place for the cubs. Imagine 20 screaming boys ranging from 7-12 for 2 hours. It’s like herding cats. Then it’s off to pick up the older one from his meeting, hear about how and why we need to “winter” camp this weekend (ummm there is 6 inches of snow on the ground and it’s going to be a whopping 18 degrees as a high this weekend) and I need to go but all this stuff for him before he leaves Friday after school. Sure I’ll do that in my spare time. Finally we get home. My hubs at this point has very nicely cleaned the house and cooked dinner. So we eat then it’s baths and bed. More fighting and being told, once again, “give that back to him” the tiny one starts to cry and finally the 3 younger ones go to bed. But do they stay there? No of course they don’t. After the 3rd time putting them to bed, they finally stay and I can relax with a tea and my kindle. Mondays are quite hectic in my house. ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Suzanne Gangarosa says:

    I am up almost every day at 430am, I get myself ready, switch out the laundry from the night before, empty and load the dishwasher, make sure my girl’s bags are actually ready (they get them ready the night before, but I always double check – my husband finished getting the girls ready and off to school in the mornings, I am lucky!). Drive 30 minutes to work at 630am where I make IV medications for patients at the hospital. Leave work after 8 or 9 hours of standing in a cleanroom all “haz-mat-looking” working with drugs and needles, pick girls up from school, run them both to karate, then home finally around 615pm for helping both girls with homework, dinner making and consumption, unpack from the day, put everything away, get the next day lined up with outfits and lunches made, get the youngest bathed, harp on the oldest to bathe, listen to the oldest wail (I mean practice) on the drum set, get girls ready and off to bed by 930pm, pay bills, spend time with the husband – most times its holding hands “watching” TV, when in reality we’re both asleep and drooling in the recliners! Throw in there some downtime for social media on a computer VS a smart phone, my all time favorite – reading, and a bit of yoga! Bed by 11pm only to start it all over again the next day! I wouldn’t trade it for anything – it’s all about time management and communication! ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Becki glagola says:

    Well let’s see… I get up a 6am to get the kids ready for school. After that I get myself ready for work. I got to work at around 730, i have a philosophy class at 2, then back to work until 4 which is when I get off from one job and rush to the other one that I have from 5 till 9 which is teaching college students. . After I get off I head home to grab a bite to eat, study, do homework and grade papers until I cannot stay awake any longer then I head to bed to do it all over again……. Happy hectic Monday!!!

  16. Roxie says:

    Oh man… I just want to be the asshole here…

    Let’s see. Monday, I wake up whenever I wake up. I take care of NO kids or animals. I eventually cook dinner for everyone, then I go out & have good time at pool league for a few hours.

    Mondays are hard.

    By comparison, mine’s a breeze. No spouse, no children, no pets. Just a job, a residence to clean, and a friend to chat with, oh yes, and reading. I won’t be winning this contest but I will enjoy reading the entries.

  18. It made me answer them in order from the other page which is why my answers are coming from the bottom, lol. I’ll finish up tomorrow, loving the answers so far.

  19. R&R express says:

    Wow all I can say is that I am glad I work from home! I might work until 7 on Mondays but I can sleep til 7 because I have a 10 second commute, and clean the litter box on my “smoke” break, lol. I hate my job at the CURRENT moment, but I’m also addicted to being able to do my chores at lunch. I get up to make sure my sweet husband gets on his way, then shower, dress, makeup, feed cats, and walk into my office to hook up. My company has major spyware, so I do a hardware teardown every night. I spend 7-10 hours working depending on if I worked the weekend. Hubby texts me when he leaves work, then I log out and feed cats, start dinner, and get a glass of wine! We eat, sometimes cook together, clean kitchen, and set up coffee. After that, it’s down time (reading, tv, bath,bed). I’m fortunate. Even if I do have to tear down my puter so that the folks in the ivory tower don’t listen to my personal life (Mr. Orwell was a prophet!).
