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!
