The Guardian had an interesting article yesterday about routines and productivity.  if you WOH/WAH and have control of your workload, how do you organize your day?  If you SAH but have. "brain work,"  I.e., classes, volunteers things to organize, etc, how do you choose to organize your day?

I am usually up early and get some "brain work" done between 5-7:30 am. Then I break to let the dogs out, get ready for the work day, etc. I am usually at my desk by 10 and meetings/teaching begin at 11. I work pretty steadily between 11 and about 4, but if I say, finish reading an article at 12:40 and have to leave for my next class at 12:50, I might spend that ten minutes playing WWF or online. I also have a snack (vanilla yogurt and fruit) about 4, then work two more hours and go home around 6. I read my mail, fold laundry, relax, and then start dinner if I am cooking. We eat about 8. DH usually goes to bed between 9 and 10. I usually stay up and read, grade papers, or futz on the net with my phone, depending on my energy levels, until my younger son gets home. He works four nights a week and gets off at 10 on school nights and 11 on weekends and if takes him about 20 mins to get home. Sometimes I fall asleep on the couch waiting for him and he had to wake me up to say goodnight, lol.

I pretty much live and breathe my daily planner, I schedule appointments, test dates, mark special events et al, I write down my grocery list in it too so essentially everything.
