I had a little bit of trouble crawling out of bed this morning. I don't know if it's all of the extra things I did over the holidays or I'm just getting old! Probably the latter. At 57 I'm grateful I feel good most of the time. We eat a pretty healthy diet, try to get extra rest when we can and do our best on the weekends to have "down time." You know, that time you can call your own to relax and recharge. If you are young, raising children you will not recognize this activity. It's not in your vocabulary.
Down time, me time...WHAT'S THAT???
My daughters are part of that group, going like the Energizer Bunny from morning till night. Never a day off. I remember that stage of my life.
I should have oodles of time to read or knit or whatever I want to do. But oddly enough, there still aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done. I don't budget my time like I used to. But I am a little smarter...a dusty table doesn't get me all riled up anymore. Hey, what's a little dust? Down time, if you are lucky enough to have it, use it!
