What's the 'play-by-play' on the FIRST DAY(s)/week with your new puppy??

Pup is home in 8 days! He'll be 8 weeks on the dot, coming home from the breeder. Super excited but starting to get nervous. I know I've got everything prepared but I keep feeling like I'm forgetting something.

Lately, whats been on my mind the most is.. What do you do with your puppy on the FIRST day home. From the moment you bring him home to the next few days to a week?? Sort've of like a play-by-play. From the moment i walk into the house, to going to sleep that night. What training do i do? When do i start walking him? Crate training? Potty training? Food/water? Chew toys? Should i plan to be up a couple times in the middle of the night and let him out of his crate to go pee? Start bite inhibition right away? Should i carry him in the house? or Let him walk in behind me? When should he meet the Roomba/vacuum?

I just got out of the military and wont start school until April, so i'll basically be able to watch his every move until then. So however detailed you can get would be awesome! Whether its day to day, hour to hour, minute to minute! hahah lemme have it! Thanks!
