I wake up at 5:30am, check email quickly in case there is something from schools. I secretly hope there is a snow day and I can go back to sleep.
I feed the cat, cook breakfast and prepare the lunch boxes. Today for breakfast there was banana, a bagel with egg and a yogurt. For lunch a sandwich, grapes (12 because from Spain), a cookie and a small pack of fish crackers.
I check what is for dinner on the meal plan and prep anything I will not have time to do later. Tonight is kimchi fried rice, I set the rice cooker on. I already have minced onion and garlic in the freezer.
I make sure the kids are on track to not miss the bus while I have breakfast and write on my journal (today I am writing here instead).
I usually do a load of laundry and when I am sure no one is missing the bus, I take a shower, get dressed and start working.
If you tell me I need to get up earlier and take a cold shower to be successful, I will filter that comment as spam.
