It might be a good idea for you to go with a curriculum that has a pre-printed schedule for you to follow. Something like Sonlight. I have tried homeschooling both ways- with an organized schedule and flying by the seat of my pants. Seat of my pants did not work for us. Things just didn't get done and I was always struggling to come up with things to do, not having supplies I needed, running to the library at the last minute, etc... not good. For me (and for my kids) homeschooling was more fun and we got more accomplished when I had a schedule and used it! There are enough curriculum companies that realize you may not want to write your own schedule and offer one ready to use. Take a look at those and see if you think it would work for you.
