Someone recently mentioned being interested in my day-to-day at home.  Inspired by her posts, I thought this may be the best way to capture what an average 18-hour period looks like for us.  Well, it's more average if you remove the ladies and replace it with Star Trek and Joel.  But he was at a work event, and this was more picturesque anyway.




*I recently read that the average stay-at-home-mom works 97.2 hours per week, and she would gross $113K if paid for those hours at $22.50/hour. If only.
