A Little Down Time

I love me some down time!  However, I love it in the morning.  After a shower, I enjoy coming downstairs, making a cup of coffee, getting the kids set up in front of the t.v. and vegging out on the computer for a bit.  I check email, Facebook, and blog.  It is relaxing and gives me that needed down time to get through my hectic days.  Sometimes I don't know what I would do without my mindless mornings.  By 7:30 I am ready to hit the ground running.  I am most productive in the mornings so I multi-task my way through until the kids get on the bus and I head to work.  By the time I get home I am spent and can barely muster enough energy to make dinner.  Running has helped as has the warmer weather, but if I don't have either of those it is a lost cause.  I usually hit the couch by 8:45-9:00 p.m. and fall asleep most nights somewhere around 10 p.m.  I always wonder if my house were more organized, would I have more down time?  Maybe this summer I will find out.  My mission organization project sort of de-railed so I will institute summer organization in a couple of weeks.  This time I will enlist the help of my husband.  Oh the joys of summer!

I am always more productive in the morning as well. Must be in our genes, I almost wrote jeans!
