Is one of my biggest personal flaws. I over schedule, under-rest and in the few spare moments I do find, I sit with a laptop and space out with Facebook.

I have been so busy lately that my personal life and faith have taken a back seat. That makes me very sad. This summer has been more packed than most. With weddings, baby showers, travel and reunions and just trying to get back into the swing of life after our own wedding...I have had little down time. To make matters worse, I don't often know what to do with my free time when I have a little of it. So I usually end up wasting time looking at arts sites or Facebook when I could be making art and spending time with friends.

There is a lot to be said for slowing down. And I have no idea HOW to. I'm willing to take suggestions!!!

Also, I've been gaming a lot. A LOT a lot. And I really need to cut back. I think today I'll try to work on a Rhea Day poem to break back into the liturgical mindset.

I'll happily take recommendations on how people unwind.


  1. This is something I'm struggling with right now too. I've cut out theatre, thinking that would make everything ok. I'm not making good use of my spare time now and it's getting ridiculous. I thought I'd go to all these stitch groups and get all sorts of things done, but I just don't.

    I'm sorry I am not helping you at all.

    Maybe I can force you to spend time with me. :)

  2. I'm totally in the same boat. Luckily, I've managed to avoid joining new things that eat up my time, but I can't really give up anything I do do. When I have spare time, I tend to zone out on netflix. :(

    When I follow it, what helps is having a weekly schedule. Monday I play games with the kiddo, Tuesday I work on writing, etc. I try to do those things right after work so I don't get distracted.
