How to chose between reading the Qur'an, do homeworks, be with friends or cooking?

It's sunday!

I am about to decide wether I am going to read the Qur'an, do homeworks with my children, have some friends over or to start cooking.

I also have much other stuff to do, but that is a must.

I feel like I have all day long to do whatever I like. But I also know that I have to do certain things if I want them to be done. I really want to study the Qur'an and read it, but the children take a lot of time. They want to play and have difficulties activating themselves. If they have friends over right now I will start cooking as they will soon be very hungry.

I don't have regular timesettings for when we have to eat. We wake up different times in the morning and go to bed different times. This is due to the fact that I have so much to do, I am always tired in the mornings and stay up late. I go to bed at two o clock at night or later and I wake up at nine or ten in the morning. This is very bad, I know, but I do so much at home.

I read, I learn, I clean, I cook, I talk with my husband through Skype, I go to school  three times a week, I get sick, I help my kids with their homework. Time passes by too quickly. And sometimes I like to watch something on youtube or MCB2.

There is so much to learn and so much to improve in my life and I struggle hard to change myself, my behavior, my routines and I listen to the best of the best, the prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, and then also take lectures from other people around me and online. Most people I know clean their houses, visits people, pray and cook. That is it. I can't do only that. I have to do more. For me it is not enough to only clean, talk with people and cook! But I really would like to improve the length of the prayer.

I decided to cook while the kids started their homeworks, and then we ate and continued the homeworks...

the friends arrived later that night!

And Qur'an...

I only listened to the Kahf!
