I wish I had that kind of time. I work til 5, he works til 6, so I usually do hw, go on FB or here, walk the dog, start dinner, do laundry…really whatever needs to be done.  Sometimes I lay around and watch TV. Reminds me I need to get started on my homework for this week, so glad next week is Spring Break!

We both get off at the same time. We only have one car so usually I am waiting on him for a ride home. Fun, fun, fun! Yell

I had the day off today, so I exercized, did the laundry, went grocery shopping, hung out on the ‘bee, caught up on a little tv, made (most of) dinner and mostly didn’t get to clean the house like I had hoped I would!  I aim to, but sometimes I would rather finish the episode of Big Love! Thank goodness he loves me anyway 🙂

Usually we get home at about 7.00 p.m. together (we carpool) but on Saturdays he works and I don’t.

On Saturdays I take ze dog for a long hike, clean my ASS off, and get myself all gussied up. During the week I’m soooo lazy when it comes to making myself look pretty so I try to make up for it on Saturdays. Usually on Saturday I am no where near the computer because I’m so siick from being on it all week.

i did that when i was in school on days i wasn’t working on stuff too 🙂 i work during the day now but i’m usually off an hour or two before him. i make dinner every night and generally try to have it close to done when he gets home. i also do all our laundry, and the dog always needs a walk around 5 or 6. i don’t really clean because we do that together on weekends.

Most days I am the one at work and Fiance is at home since he is a student but on Wednesday I am home and even though he does not get back from school till 9PM I find myself in the same panic. When I am at work Fiance 99% of the time cleans up, makes the bed etc and then on Wednesdays I go online and watch TV then I am like crap only an hour to go and run around like crazy too!!

When he’s at work, I usually am too. But when he’s working and I’m at home, I’ll read or watch TV, and yes, I do try to do some cleaning or cooking. He usually does more stuff around the house so I try to make up for it when I’m not working.

I only get one day where I get home before Fiance does, and I love him to death, but it sure is nice to come home to a quiet house once a week! =) I watch whatever movie I feel like watching (lately, 27 Dresses, The Sweetest Thing, or some other wedding related movie), eat whatever I want for dinner (usually ramen with an egg!), and do some crafting or reading or web browsing. =) Great topic!

HAHHAHAAHA – you crack me up!!!!  If I wasn’t working I would probably do the exact same thing. However, at the moment FH is usually home before me – – On the rare occasion that I’m home before him there isn’t really anything I do except feed/walk our big dog. He takes our little dog to work everyday, heeheehee

Hate to be cliche, but I am making dinner! Black beans and rice, anyone?

I actually usually work longer hours than my Fiance and we both head to the gym after work and I usually get home later.  I am the type that gets in, does my routine on the treadmill and gets out, but Fiance plays racquetball for hours.  Then I head to the store to pick up something for dinner, head home, walk the dog and get dinner ready.  Then I chill on the internet until Fiance comes home and we get to eat.  Mmmm…speaking of, I’m hungry…

 Nope, I don’t do anything out of the ordinary. Of course, we also don’t live together so it’s MY apartment and not “ours”

haha, i guess i try to whenever i do get home early..but mondays/wed i get done at 6:30, then pick him up from the library. tuesdays/thurdays i go to my full time job then meet him at our part time job (we work nights at a dental office) and get home together after that.

The apartment is usually a wreck and i’ve “made dinner” maybe 5 times in the past 2 years. (whoops, bad “wife”) we usually just do our own thing for dinner…he’ll make a sandwich..i’ll have soup or cereal. i hope someday that will change maybe?? haha, right now it works!
