How I spend my time: 06/10/16
A question I get asked at least once a year is "how do you find time to read?" The variant of that question is "how do you find time to get anything else done?"
OK. OK. My life isn't as routine or as busy as Larry's but there's certainly an ebb and flow to it.
Do I spend all day reading? No. Goodness no. As much as I love reading there is no way you could get me to sit all day and do nothing but read. I can read for about an hour before I have to do something else.
So what is my schedule like? When school is in session, it's like this:
As you can see it's not a full day of reading. It's maybe two hours or two and a half hours of reading. But it's no always that much. And sure, sometimes it's more. Weekends are of course different. Holidays and vacations are different too. But that's the gist of how I get things done.
Things will also change when i find work again. It will happen eventually.

My goodness, what kind of work are you looking for? You sound like you hardly sleep during the week. You are a photographer, painter, blogger, reader, full time mom and wife. Perhaps you speed read?

I am a librarian but there are more librarians than there are jobs right now. So I volunteer instead. The photography is a hobby, a way to make sure I get out doors and get some exercise. The painting is also a hobby, although I'm working to take that to the next level by getting some of my work purchased for a new library my city is building. Parent and spouse, though, aren't jobs nor something I use to define myself by. As far as speed reading, no I don't usually speed read, although I do know how to. Please see "how I read."
