Slowing Down

January started off pretty good with not a lot of commitments.

I enjoyed January.

Then February came with lots of things to do, so I wasn't home in the evenings quite as much, but still had some home time.

Then March came, and it seems like, go, go, go.

But I do kind of get out of whack when I travel, and since I was gone for about five days a week ago, that didn't help.

For those of you who know me, I am not a violent person.  But if I hear the words, "you are the busiest person I know" come out of someone's mouth, I may just have to smack them!!

Ha! Ha!  But I'm really trying to not be so busy.  But my being less busy still probably looks really busy to a casual observer. 

But I am really trying to not have my evenings so tied up.  This week has about killed me. 

Monday night:  Senior Parent Meeting
Tuesday night:  Sixth Street Board Meeting
Tonight:  Gave a report at the School Board Meeting.

I do think I have tomorrow night free.  Yay!!

But then Friday night I have something.

I am committed to something all day Saturday.

Sunday afternoon is looking rather promising!!

I just went into the kitchen trolling for a little snack, and discovered a fortune cookie on the counter.  When I read the fortune it said this:

Your free time this week will lead to great benefits.  Serendipity!!

H-m-m-m-m-m-m.  Free time. Benefits.  Like finishing a book, or reading the movie script my friend dropped off for me to read that she just finished writing, or ........

Yes, I can find some benefits in free time.  Let's see what happens tomorrow night!!

A wise friend told me we all have the same twenty-four hours each day. We have the power to decide how to spend those days. Once I am home from school I am done. I need that quiet time at home to recharge for the next day. Slowing down comes with living in a rural place and aging!
