Show Us Your Life - Schedules

My schedule is not really a schedule. Honestly. :) Between school(16+ hours/week) and work (30+ hours/wk), I feel like I have zero time to get things done at home. I have honestly felt like I have been failing as a wife and a homemaker recently. And we won't even begin to talk about how I have felt the last few days with all the time in the world on my hands, Thanks Strep Throat, and not being able to get anything done.
I am open to any and all suggestions on how to better balance this!
T works 3-4 days a week from midnight-8am and then 2 random shifts. This makes life with 1 car rather interesting. We shuffle a lot. ;o)
Monday through Thursday
6:00 - wake up. Or try to at least. I get up no later than 6:20
6:40 -7:15 Breakfast, let Coach and Lady take care of business and feed them.
7:20 Out the door for the commute to school (If I have to pick T up from work before I go, I leave at 7).
8-2:15 Architectural Design 2, short lunch break, Structural Design
4-10:30pm Work
8-10:15am Elementary Surveying (this is the class I hate because it is outside half of the time. I would NOT be taking this if it wasn't a requirement for graduation in May. Ha)
10:30-12pm I work on my hybrid Revit Architecture assignments
2-10:30pm Work
8-2:15 Architectural Design 2, short lunch break, Structural Design
6:30pm Renewal at Church
7:45-9pm Adult Choir practice
no classes! I try to spend my morning productively getting things done around the apartment or running errands. But I do enjoy sleeping in until a *shocking* 8am. Those extra 2 hours are heavenly!
2-10:30 Work
11 Church
Lunch at my parents
4:30 Chi Alpha (youth choir at church) practice
Sunday evenings are spent with T. With his crazy hours and my busy hours, we know that our Sunday nights we can just be still and relax. We call this our "date night" even if that date night consists of us vegging out in bed catching up on some shows via the internet.
Cutting off our cable several months ago seemed like a crazy decision at the time but honestly, I don't even know where I found time in the day to watch all the shows we watched! If we had it now, I can guarantee that I would get nothing productive done when I find some spare time. :)

Back in college I would have loved to have Friday without any classes, but was never able to manage it!

And I can't believe you have strep throat. I'm hoping you're starting to feel back and are able to get back to normal

I am a Disney addict, so that caught my attention....Having trouble sleeping tonight so decided to blog hop.
Love your blog.. Hope you will stop by mine...I just added some extra giveaways that I am drawing for on Sat night.
