It’s tough for me to do a “day in the life” post.  I run two businesses–I teach 54 piano students and two music classes  three and a half days a week.  I spend Sundays working at church and working on church music.  My other two and a half days a week, I’m a full time mom and online seller.

On the days I teach, I run both businesses, checking my eBay sales and messages between lessons and shipping out items when I get home in the evening.  I generally  list on days that I don’t teach.

Here’s what a typical Wednesday looks like for me:

7:10 a.m.  Up and at ‘em :)

7:30 a.m. Wake my little one up and get her going.

8:00 a.m. Out the door to drop her at school and get myself to the school I teach at.

8:30 a.m Kick off my first lesson for the day.  Teach at school, one student every half hour until 4:05 p.m. (with a 35 minute lunch break)

5:00-6:00 Stop off for the last two lessons of the day.

6:15 p.m.  Grab some dinner at a drive thru.

6:45 p.m. Arrive at church for Bible study in time to grab a drink, use the restroom and head to the piano.

8:30 p.m.  Leave church and chat on the way home with my daughter about her day.

8:45 p.m. Arrive home, check the mail, unload the car.

9:00 p.m. Tuck my daughter into bed. Help her get out clothes and shoes for the morning.

9:15 p.m. Pack lunches  and lay out clothes for the morning.

9:30 p.m. Check online sales for the day, round up items to ship, head to the office to start shipping

10:30 p.m.  Head back down stairs, put packages in the mail bin, put laundry and dishes away.

11:00 p.m. Take a shower, brush my teeth, wash my face

11:30 p.m.  Answer emails from parents and customers.

12:00 a.m.  Make sure coffee is ready for the morning :) ……….Lights out.

    That is a full day! And it’s Wednesday today too, whew!

    I need to be more organized like this. Seriously, I spend 3/4 of my day thinking of how to organize myself and 1/4 actually doing the organizing, which feels like a wasted day. Hahaha! I guess when I start studying again, I need a sched to keep me sane and running effectively!

    When do you make your blog posts? At night?

    Hi Blessy! I actually take my laptop with me to school and work on blog posts between piano lessons and on lunch :)
