I wish my time were spent differently than yours but mine is about the same. Separating my children is another biggie since Elliot goes into full-on zombie mode and attacks Graham every three seconds. My son screams like a girl, btw.

teach a man to fish... or teach Hank to open cheese, then look at all the free time you'll have.

Today a good majority of my time was spent cleaning out my filing cabinet that has been collecting loose papers for the last two years. It feels good to have that project done with! The other part of the time was spent telling kids to stop picking their noses...I make such a difference in the world ;) hahaha

Stepping on legos with my bare feet, cursing, picking up legos, "breaking" lego structures already built by merely touching them . . . umm, I'd say legos and lego-related activities occupy about 89% of my chart.

absolutely yelling Oscar's name. also saying "no," opening bars - granola bars, breakfast bars - and cutting all non bar formed food into the shape of a bar, since Oscar is only interested in BARS.

Jenni said...

possibly because BARS sounds so much like CARS?

Cluck and Tweet said...

I might pee my pants. Did that actually say "opening cheese?"

OVer on Cluck and Tweet, we apparently spend our time trying to amuse ourselves and acting like we're fancy bloggers with lots of good stuff to say.

I'd be afraid to see the size of the internet portion of my pie chart.

Sara said...

Well...I'm gonna do two imaginary pie charts.
At work would have lots of 'listening to old men tell jokes' and 'feigning interest' with a splash of 'reading gossip mags/blogs' depending on the week.
At home 'Washing the same damn drinking glasses over and over because heaven forbid you use it twice,' 'repeating myself over and over and over: get a shower, go to bed, feed the dogs, do your homework....' ummmm, and that's about it.

I have no idea why i get such a thrill from your pie charts but i do.

Veronica said...

At this particular moment, I am spending 100% of my time in my office, 37.5% of it meeting with students, and 62.5% of it being stood up by students who were supposed to meet with me. Good times.

i don't know why i thought of it now, but i was just pondering a doomsday scenario with your blog. like what would happen if everyone who is in it found it and knew who it was referring to? and i can't decide if i prefer 'ablogalypse' or 'blogaggedon' as a way of referring to events which could destroy a blog.

What kind of cheese, I must know. The kind with the built-in ziplock that I cannot master so I get the kitchen shears and slice it all open and then use a ziplock bag instead.

Amy said...

Seriously laughing at opening cheese! Lord, I love these pie chart things!

Mine would be: Trying to put my socks on without falling over, playing "cats" with Nate, wondering if my water has broken (it hasn't), and covertly throwing away the kids' artwork from school before it suffocates us all.

Becky said...

On the cheese: yes, ALL kinds of cheese--the difficult ziplocked blocks o' cheese (Michele R, Matt doesn't even notice those have ziplocks--he just rips them open, sigh), the individually wrapped slices of cheese, cheese sticks, bags of shredded cheese, and even tubs of cottage cheese. One issue is that Hank can open the fridge and reach into the dairy drawer.

Melon, I like "ablogalypse," but I like to think of that event as "blognarok." There are really only like two people who I would not like to find out about this blog. Maybe after I get huge (right) I'll stop blogging about them. But silly Melon, my neighbors finding out wouldn't destroy the blog, it would destroy my relationships with the people in the blog! I don't think it will happen.

And maybe we should start a meme--everyone loves some charts and graphs. Assuming anyone would take the trouble to make them, could be fun!

Michele said...

I really want your pie chart because I love cheese.

Christine said...

Apparently I, too, spend too much time opening cheese, as my 3.5 year old has not done bathroom business since FRIDAY. Don't worry...I took action today, I just hope he takes HIS action before school tomorrow.

So 100 percent of my time today has been spent waiting.

Bex said...

mmmmm..... yes, cheese. that takes a lot of my time as well!

A Day That is Dessert said...

you're silly :) catching up on no internet over the weekend is taking up all of my time today

Cassie said...

Oh, you should definitely start a meme.

I spend a ridiculous amount of my time opening cheese also. And the rest of my time is spent being interrupted to varying degrees in various scenarios.

leafmonster said...

Thankfully, my son is now old enough to open the cheese himself. So instead of opening cheese, I spend 50% of my time driving the kids places and 50% buying cheese and other groceries for the kids to eat. And 100% of the time obsessing about how the world will change when my oldest begins driving lessons.
