How I Manage my Days & Juggle being Mom, Homemaker & Boss.

It should be no surprise being a mom, homemaker & boss is not an easy job to have, I wouldn't trade it for the world and it took me some time to get my schedule to where it is today which is amazing for myself, but lets face it once our little girl gets here it's going to get a little shook up again. 

As for now I really wanted to share with everyone one what my days look like so I can organize my days and schedule done what needs to be done. When Kayden wasn't going to school for 6 months it was rough, I had a hard time juggling it all and I still don't have it all figured out. 

In all honesty I was never the one to love the typical work day my mind just doesn't work like that, thats one reason why owning my own business was always something I strived to have. I've finally come up with a schedule that I love and makes me feel like I get a lot done even though I don't have a typical 9 to 5.

5:30am - Wake-up Call -- thats right I start my days at 5:30. I love waking up before Kayden it's my alone time to get my hair and make-up done, his lunches ready and get his bag packed for the day ahead if need be. It's also when I enjoy my breakfast and might go through social media if I have time. {social media is a huge time stealer and I don't like going on it unless I have a personal time to ex: morning or at lunch when I done eating.} 

6:30am - Start Laundry -- I do this every other day and it has changed my life! For the past 12 years Greg and I have lived together I had been loading up our laundry every Sunday and was making this a HUGE chore it was horrible to say the least. Now every other day I load up our laundry and do about one or two small loads to make this less of a chores and more of a enjoyable thing to get done. It use to take me about a hour and half it now takes maybe 30mins or less to tackle the laundry.

7:00am - Wake-up Kayden -- This is only if he hasn't woken up yet and he usually hasn't, that is why above works for me and our life right now. 

7:50am to 8:15am School Drop off -- This is one of the most crucial things for Kayden to do every morning it gets his energy out and sets him up to have a good day. 

8:20am to 8:30 - Coffee & Emails -- This is the beginning of my work day I don't like to check emails till this moment cause if I do then I feel like I need to write back right away, I still fond myself doing it something but I try not to unless it's extremely urgent! 

8:30am to 12pm - "Client Focus" -- I dedicate this time to my clients that I currently have this time is just for me to focus strictly on their weddings and get anything done for them I need to that week. This is anything ex: calls, timelines, seating, going through todos for them and prepping their must get done lists. Since I limit the number of clients we have per calendar year it's easy for me to get this done by myself and this is why I can help every one of my clients with their wedding and you don't work with my other staff until the day of their wedding. 

12:00pm - Lunch Break -- It might sound silly to even write this down but I have to otherwise I actually might not eat my lunch. Working from home makes you forget to do things like eat lunch or just take a little break to stretch. 12 to 1 it my break time. 

1:00pm to 1:30 -- Crunch Time -- This is the last bit of time have have to get anything work or home related done before I have to pick up Kayden and help him with homework and be with him the ret of the day. 

2:00 to 8:30pm - Mom & Homemaker -- This is my time with my family, helping Kayden get homework done, playing with him, getting dinner ready and just being with my family enjoying the time I have with them. This is one of the big reasons I love having my own business. 

I hope this helps you get an idea on how to map out your own day if you are a work from home mama in need of some kind of schedule or someone that just needs to get better at breaking down the hours in the day.
