I'm relatively new to the boards. I used to have detailed lists once upon a time - probably during the height of my busy-ness ... then things started slowing down as kids left the nest and kids decided to drop out of certain activities - so I abandoned "The List." I've been kinda craving that list again.

My schedule and therefore some of my routine changes essentially 5 times a year even though 2 of those are only one month long ...
1) When fall semester/school/activities start back (that's a full two month window before everything is in full swing)
2) December when I'm out between semesters
3) When sping semester begins
4) When I'm out for summer break
5) When the kids are out for summer break

This has been my fall semester --- I feel like I'm leaving a lot of stuff out - as I see it I'll edit it.

I have two lists - one is my schedule - times that simply are what they are ---- my routine happens between things on the schedule
I do not have times for N to leave because she is a member of a variety of clubs and they meet at different times, different days, and whatnots - so she could leave as early as 7 or as late as 7:50.
