5:30 greet the kids and then spend 5 minutes getting puppy attacked by my 8 lb Maltese fluffball. Bust out the laptop and catch up on social media crap.

6:00 wife gets home. We play the "What should we eat tonight?" game for a while. Try to write a few hundred words between cooking and watching TV/eating.

7:00 write.

8:00 watch some show from the DVR while still getting puppy attacked. Write because I can't do one thing at a time.

9:00 wander to bed with laptop and write.

10:00 pass out.

Well, I am class president for the Class of 2016, I'm rather active in the Kappa Psi professional pharmacy fraternity, and I must say, no one wears their white pharmacy coat with anywhere near as much flair.  My stethoscope is also color-coordinated with the College of Pharmacy colors.

7 PM: get home from work, dinner will be ready when I arrive

9 PM: finish dinner, cleaning and putting kid to bed

till 10:30:
- Half the time: play a pc game, feel guilty about not spending enough time with girlfriend
- Other half the time: watch a tv show with girlfriend, feeling guilty about not spending enough time with video game

11 PM: read a book in bed
11.01 PM: fall asleep

And soon even that precious bit of pc gaming time will be gone, since kid number 2 will be here in 2 months time smile

slywink  I actually loved writing for GT.  Wish I still had the time to do it.

My evenings are typically:
4:30 - Home from work, calm before the storm
5:00 - Wake Little B up from her nap, send Mrs. Gratch off to work
5:30 - Dinner
6:00-7:30 - Play with Little B and/or bathtime
7:30 - It's a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse...come inside it's fun inside!
8:00 - Bedtime for B
8:15-9:00 - Clean, make lunch for next day, do dishes, feed animals, etc.
9:00-10:30 - Gaming, reading, Netflix
10:30 - Bed

Of course, this is all going to change dramatically when the Baby Gratch twins arrive in May...

4:30-6:30 - Some combination of read, catch up on DVR, nap, surf the Internet, and play video games
6:30-7:30 - DVR/dinner (time varies by day)
7:30-11:00 - Depending on the day - some combination of Tae Kwon Do, TV, movie at home, video games, read, occasionally work on something productive

Pretty sure this will all change dramatically when I have kids in the next year or two  icon_razz

Depends where I've had to travel to. If it's Jersey I typically get home around 730 to 830, have dinner, watch some Netflix, and crash. If it's closer to home I typically get home 630-7, have dinner, maybe watch 1-2 shows on the big TV, and then crash.

Exciting!
