4:30 -6:15 am: Get out of bed, feed the dog, exercise, play fetch with dog, have breakfast, make lunch, brush teeth, put on uniform, etc.

6:15 - 7:00 am: Put dog in kennel and drive to work.

7:00 - 7:30 am: Have coffee, organize myself for the work day, line up work for Harvest Inspectors. Tell HI's what their work will be for the day.

7:30 am to 6:00 pm: Drive into the forest, check on logging operations, protect the environment, check timber falling operations, approve landings, temporary roads, and skid trails, inspect log truck loads, do tons of paperwork, check work emails on work computer (the government won't let us log on to sites like DC, usually too busy anyways), put out fires, watch for lightning, dispatch firefighters to fires, see a mountain lion, see some great scenery, eat lunch, monitor skidding operations, monitor stream flows, check soil moisture, protect wildlife, etc.

6:00 pm to bedtime: drive home, play with dog, take off uniform put on shorts and t-shirt, have dinner, take shower, watch tv, log on to internet, housework, yardwork, call Mom and Dad, go for a walk, brush teeth, go to bed.

Of course, I don't do all those things everyday. But my schedule is so flexible that I could do any number of those things, particularly at work. If I had to do them all I would collapse!!

Find kitchen, stumble to computer, turn on DC, drink first cup of coffee. Drink second cup of coffee
6:30: finally wake up. Have a bagel or cottage cheese. Or both.
7:00: wake up the h for work, say good morning to dog.
7:05: hair, makeup & shorts and a tank top with sneaks.
7:20: Make bed, Iron h's clothes for the day. It's always a nice suit. I must coordinate the suit with the shirt with the tie with the socks. H takes the dog outside.
Put away dishes from the dishwasher
7:25: Wake up kids. Remind them that they are not nocturnal, and they do need to be awake during daylight hours.
7:30 feed kids. Today it was ham, blueberries, bananas and milk. Give some ham to the dog.
7:50 take dog out again, give her kisses and hugs.
8:00: In the car with kids. Get gas and drive 30 miles.

Go on all kinds of rides (including the newly remodeled, just opened Space Mountain).
12:00 Hop over to Disney's California Adventure for lunch at the Mission Tortilla Factory. More rides, etc.
3:00 Downtown Disney for a quick shop. Lego store is a must with the kids.
4:30 back in town. Go to Ikea for a dust ruffle. No dust ruffles at Ikea. Buy 3 rugs, 2 pounds of coffee and some "Marsan snabb vaniljsas". Never used it, but it looks good.
5:30: Take out dog, put in a load of laundry, pick up in the living room and dining room. Check out DC.
6:00 Watch kids build giant Harry Potter lego set they bought today. Sit on new rug. Very comfy.
6:30: realize DC is still on, check it out.
Followed by feeding parakeets, taking out dog again.
7:15: h is home. Go over paint ideas for youngest's room color. Hang with kids (still into the legos)
7:40: dinner: steak, peas, grapes, bread, tomatoes. Dessert: pound cake tiny squares layered with blueberries and raspberries and whipped cream. Put whipped cream on dog's nose.
8:00 h plays online hold 'em, I get the boys ready for bed.
Pack the last things for littlest's trip to camp tomorrow.
9:00 kids in bed, many hugs and kisses! take dog out. Ask dog to sleep in youngest's room. Dog says no. Dog is with me. H goes to the gym. (I didn't - I figured I walked many miles and I'm tired!)
10:00 DC!

5 am Out of bed - shower, shave, dressed for work and out the door
5:45 drive to work
6:15/6:30 At work, get going on things for the day, get as much as possible done ASAP
10:00am The folks in the LA office start coming in - the dumb questions start.
4:00 go home
5:00 get home, lousy traffic
Then it's a progression of have dinner, mow lawn/clean basement/work in brewery/fix something around the house
10:00 Bed
