9:30 – 1:00 – Cook and eat if in the mood else go out
1:00 – 6:30 – Kill time (TV/Books/MBA)
6:30 – 10:00 – Browse, eat, call up friends
10:00 – 11:00 – Try to sleep

  1. Laksh, I can so relate- as a parent of twins myself, its been YEARS since I slept in until say 8 am….. thats what I miss the most!

  2. Ditto with me!
    And there are these so many things that sneak in between – haircuts, groceries, temple visits, yard work, house cleaning, making special recipes, falling sick…
    It is so tightly packed that if one thing moves places, so many things have to be moved around also. Almost always, it pushes our bedtime farther and farther.
