tick - tock - tick - tock

Just wondering.....do you feel you are being robbed of your fun, creative time?

Are you finding yourself spending more, or, spending less time doing the things you enjoy?

Strange, it seems like I used to have more time, and, unless I missed the headline, there are still 24 hours in each and every day.

Yes, I know we need to sleep for 6-8 hours,  so that leaves 17 hours, assuming 7 hours of sleep.
That got me to thinking....maybe I need more sleep ...lets bump that sleep portion up to 8 hours.

That's better......
okay, so 17 hours of our day remains. Well, we need to eat, right?
Unless you're very fortunate and have a personal chef, or a husband that cooks, we need to allot time for meals......

Breakfast... A bowl of cereal, yogurt, fruit or toast may do the trick most mornings, so lets say 20-30 minutes.  Not very impressive for the most important meal of the day is it? Don't forget the coffee!

Lunch..... well, if your at work it's going to be lumped in with work time (more on that later)

Dinner, or Supper - depending on where you're from. If you cook from scratch and make a full meal let's allow 1-1/2 hours for prep, eating, and cleaning up.

So far that's 2 hours for meals at home.


What are we down to now?  15 hours...    tick-tock-tick-tock.........

So we've covered sleep and food, two things we must do every day.

Then there's putting ourselves together. Unless you never leave the house, don't look in the mirror, or have anyone else in the house, yes, pets count,  this is also a must.

I don't know about you, but I surely don't look like the women in the movies, or on TV, that wake up with pretty hair, long eyelashes, and no wrinkles in their nighties. HA - HA- HA,  far from it.

How long does it take to put yourself together?

While you ponder that I'm going to get that 8 hours of sleep time. We'll get back to this when I find the next free time slot.......until then, do something you love.
