9:45 pm- round 2 dinner, all boys are hungry after soccer
10:00 pm- teeth brushing, forcible removing from the living room up to beds
10:15 pm- lights out
10:16 pm- I fall into bed and pass out (but only if I have all my jewelry orders ready.  sometimes, I work til about midnight on those)

Now, mind you, this is during soccer season only.  Sometimes we have football, basketball and baseball to add to the schedule.

Where, you might ask?

Well, you can go up through the schedule again and find a few minutes here and there where there was absolutely NOTHING going on. 

That's where we fit it in.

I have a new respect for EXCEL spreadsheets.

They are not just for work anymore.
