Our homeschool day

So.... now that most of you have started the new school year, how are you doing? We are still finishing up our MFW K curriculum. Almost done, about 2 or 3 weeks left. A while back it was like 6 weeks and it felt like we'd never get done. As I mentioned before we had some "life" happen so it's taking some time. But that's the beauty of homeschooling, right? So I bet your curious about what our schedule looks like. We are night owls so when some of you are starting your homeschool day we are just getting up. But that's what works for us at this point in time and we don't really have a choice right now because of hubbys work schedule. Most of you know what it's like to try to do school when your "other half" is home. It doesn't usually turn out too well, does it? So here it goes:

 9:00 wake up make coffee for me and breakfast for the kids
9:30-10:00 kids eat breakfast then they watch a program or two on TV
10:30 make coffee for hubby (and me again) then go wake him up
11:00 make hubbys breakfast
11:30 I like to at least start school with my daughter
12:00-1:00 make lunch and start school with my son.
2:00 hubby leaves for work and we continue doing some more lessons
2:30 if we have errands to do, this is the time we would leave to do them. If we don't we try to get finished with school for the day.
4:00 usually back home (if we had errands that day) and we try to finish school if we haven't already.
5:00 depending on the day we usually are finished and kids can have free time to do what they want (within reason)
5:45 I usually start dinner
6:30 Dinner
7:00-8:00 baths/showers (yes, it takes that long because we have one bathroom)
8:00-8:30 kids watch a TV show (usually Nick Jr or Sprout)
8:30 daughter goes to bed
9:30 son goes to bed
Then I either have "me" time or watch a movie with hubby
11:30 I usually fall asleep

This is on a "good" day. As you know there is no such thing as a perfect day or a perfect schedule. What is your day like?
