Do you have a scheduled time for supper at your home? How often are you within 20 minutes?
Mrs Salty works a roating night shift so we just have supper whenever we can squeeze it in.
I'm retired, live alone and have no schedule for anything. I eat when I'm hungry and go to bed when I can't keep my eyes open--regardless of the time of day or night. I often stay up until 3 AM or later, get up in the early afternoon, and I sometimes take a late afternoon or early evening nap.
Neither is a schedule useful for retired people unless for medical reasons.
I work a split shift. Sometimes I work a double often with little or no advanced notice. That doesn't include the time spent with my pastoral responsibilities. madre's work is dependent on numerous factors determined by someone other than she or me. We ate together today for the first time in months. I guess we missed the 20 minutes of wiggle room.
We eat at 6:30 during the week with the exception of Wednesday and Sunday. We almost always eat on time, and we almost always eat our meal at the dining room table (which seems to be a novel concept to those I talk about it with in the church). Nobody seems to eat at the table anymore!
I'm with you except we're at our kitchen table.
Now with my girls bigger and working, they are not always at home with us for dinner but they try to be. I can't imagine NOT having dinner together. It's rare for us to just go our separate ways for dinner and when we do, I feel guilty.
I work second shift, therefore our dinners before I go to work qualify more as our supper.
Ron travels, so I put 4x week. We also eat at the dining room table. We don't have one in the kitchen anymore, but when we were still in a house (and not a townhome), we at at this same table in the kitchen.
We eat at 7ish, except on Sunday or Wednesday evenings or unless something else comes up.
We always try to eat together. My oldest daughter goes to school about an hour away and I know that it's terribly inconvenient for her, but she often comes home just to have supper with us.

Let's see --
Sunday, ate dinner at 6:30 PM.
Monday, ate at a cookout at 4:00 PM, snacked until bedtime.
Tuesday, ate at 6:15 PM.
Tonight, will eat at 5:30 or 6:00 PM, followed by a meeting and gym time.
Thursday, will eat at 7:30 or so (after Dear Wifey gets home from work),
Friday, will probably eat at about 6:00 to 6:30 PM.
Saturday, go to a HS graduation at 5:00 PM, followed by dinner (probably about 7:30 PM).
Nope, no real consistent timeframe, just good meals with my Dear Wifey. The schedule for this week is typical, except for Saturday -- sometimes we have something to do, and sometimes it's more like a Tuesday.
7 nights a week unless me and revmitchellswife go on a date
We normally eat at 7ish --- with teens, those at the dinner table change daily based on schedules and range from just the two of us to the whole gang including girl/boy friends. It was crazy during the school year; not that summer is here, it's even more so. But dinner is always on the stove and those that are here are welcome. Sunday lunch after church is almost always a given.
When I get hungry.
