So What Do We Do Now?

Now that our kids are going to bed at 7:00-7:30 and sleeping through the night, Nathan and I have an absurd amount of "free" time on our hands. I'm not sure why I put free in quotation marks, but time never seems free, so it seemed fitting. After we tidy the house and start the laundry, it's only 8 PM or so. Considering the past few months have consisted of our children constantly being awake, we have no idea what to do with so much time.

The past couple of days, I have spent these hours foolishly watching episodes of The Mentalist or playing geography games because I am a nerd. I used to take any opportunity I had alone to read, but I'm not there yet.  It's like I am slowly coming out of a sleep-deprived catatonic state; I feel the fog lifting, and it is amazing.  I plan on enjoying mindless entertainment for a few more days before I buckle down and find something productive or fulfilling to do with the day's extra hours.

Who knows? Maybe I'll start exercising? Realistically speaking, though, I'll probably just find a new book series that I enjoy. Oh, words, I am so happy at the thought of reading you!

I should also consider going to bed before midnight. It's hard to retrain the body and mind into believing that sleep is real and isn't going to be interrupted!


  1. Do you crochet or knit? I've busied myself with that and mindless tv. Oh, and retreading Harry Potter.

  2. Hahaha. In all honesty, I'd be doing exactly what you are now. I enjoy having lazy time.
