It seems like February has been spent running around non-stop. We have an extra weekly activity. I've been working on a Valentine's Day gift for the girls involving the sewing machine. I've had appointments and meetings during my 2.5 hours of weekly me time. I'm tired.
Today, I finally scheduled some nothingness. I literally assigned 3 hours to "Nothing" in my calendar. It shows I am busy and I am going to try very hard not do anything during that time. I don't feel like the girls have too many activities. The one day we are booked solid is mostly playing. I just need a breather.
Do you have to schedule down time into your calendar? Are you diligent about finding free time to recover from your life or are you happy always on the go?
I had more free time before kids, of course. I don't think I really felt things HAD to be done before taking on 2 little people's lives and stuff. Now, I feel like there is always something that needs to be done. If I am home, I clean something. If I am out, I run an errand (usually grocery.) I try to lunch with DH on my few free hours.
I think I need to remember what nothingness feels like.

Show as busy.
I hope next week I will be able to tell you I used it especially for nothingness.
