My husband has been driving truck for 6 months OTR..we have 3 children 2 with disabilities, ages 5, 2, and 1. Any tips on organization at home? I do menus, schedules, (if not my 2 with disabilities fall apart) but I have no flowing routine without something going wrong. I also go to school FT 5 days a week...life is just hectic. How do you do it!?

I have one 3yr old little girl, work from home full time through a call center, go to school full time online,and my husband is only home for his weekend with the US Army Reserves 4 days, and another weekend or two additional days a month.
I don't have a schedule per say. I work a mid day shift and my little one is in the living room with tv and toys while I work until it is break time. I do breakfast, lunch, and dinner as normal. I log into class at night every day of the week and take my off days for tests/papers. I am off weekends and holidays, so those days are my family and errand time normally. Really I don't think a routine is needed if you kind of take your work/school schedule and plan life around it. Schedules are hard to stick to in my home just cause I always have other plans that fall in. I just like a general idea of what my day should be like, then I add the extras into it as they come. Good luck to you and message me or on facebook if you need more help if I could possibly give any!
