Like many of you, I’m VERY busy. I actually like to stay busy, so if I have openings in my calendar, I usually schedule something. For example, here is a typical Wednesday for me ..
Nancy’s Wednesday Schedule

I really don’t know WHY I over schedule myself because when I do get a little down time .. I LOVE IT! Today is one of those days. After I finish work about 1:00 pm, I don’t have to be anywhere. I have nothing scheduled and can spend the afternoon on the couch, if that is what I want. And I’m not alone with the over-scheduling. A new survey found that the average person only get 43 minutes of “me time” a day. That’s about five hours a week. Some of the things getting in the way of “me time” include … too much noise, work, stressing out over the news, my significant other, and my kids.
If I did have more time to myself, I suppose I’d read more, see a few more movies or watch Chicago Cubs baseball. What about you? Do you need more time on the couch to watch baseball? If not, what would you do?
