    Anyone else??

    Wow!! You put me to shame!!

    My day:

    6am - wake up, get dressed... hubby and I feed pig, dogs, and horses and clean stalls
    7am - make kids breakfasts and lunches and do assorted stuff around the house
    8am - take kids to school
    830 - go home and plan my day
    Right now it's too hot to ride or work the horses -- still in the 100s!!! That will change soon, and then I can start riding again!!!! Hubby and I usually ride in the evenings on the weekend, or if my daughter has a day off from the barn, we'll go in the morning. But right now she's been riding in the morning both days on the weekends because it's too hot after school during the week.
    So until I can ride during the day again, I keep busy with running errands, laundry, stuff around the house, and computer time - pay bills, answer emails, research and play
    I usually go out and say hi the horses several times a day. During these times, I'll pick up the baby's feet, put a "saddle pad" on her back, play with her ears, etc.
    3pm - pick up son from school
    Wait around or kill time until 4pm when daughter's bus arrives. The kids go to school in our old neighborhood several neighborhoods away, so not enough time to come home in between
    4-6pm Soon daughter will start lessons after school again. Right now... too hot!! Find out about kids' days, figure out something for dinner, make sure son gets homework done - daughter is self-sufficient in that area, hubby gets home, hear about his day
    6pm - feed pig, dogs, horses
    630 or 7 - eat dinner
    730pm - go out and clean stalls
    If it's not too hot, I'll lunge the horses before feeding time, otherwise will work them after, sometimes skip it. It's just tooooooo hottttttt!!!!!! UGH!!! If I can't do all of them, I at least do mama and baby. I don't overdo, but the baby has already gotten so much stronger. If I were really good, I would get up earlier and lunge the horses early, early in the morning! I wonder how good they would be at the lungeing before breakfast. I would imagine they would be kind of mad, having to work before they eat in the morning. What do you all think?
    SHOWER!!!!! (covered in sweat and manure dust - yuck!!)
    9pm - hubby and I might try to watch a movie
    11pm - bed time
