Does anybody ever ask you that question? I get it, in one form or another, quite often. Sometimes it's subtle - "oh I could never retire, I'd be so bored!" Sometimes it's kind of nasty - "I can't retire; I have too much still to offer/do." Sometimes it's true curiosity..."what exactly do you do with your time?" It occurred to me this week that maybe I could just explain what I do.
I start my day with Bible study and a Diet Dr. Pepper. I know, Aspartame, but I don't drink coffee. That's my excuse. :)
Next are the errands that have to be run:
If I'm lucky I get to go have a manicure and/or pedicure here:
I take my I Pad with me, and my chai tea latte, and read blogs while I wait. Then it's time to pick up a few groceries.
Pulling into my driveway this is what I see. I take a minute to stand and admire this beautiful tree in my yard. I do believe this is the most beautiful it's ever been!
When I get home I put away the groceries, change clothes and start the next chore:
Finally, I grab a few minutes to do this:
I'm working on something special but I can't show you now - it's on to the next job: supper. I hate to cook but my husband loves to eat so it's a necessary evil. I cook, we eat, I clean up.
Now the most important question of all: how did I get all that done when I worked? How do you get it done if you're working? Is this some sort of natural phenomenon that has an explanation involving physics and gravity? Because I honestly don't know the answer! If you know please tell me. But if it involves physics and gravity don't bother. I'm too tired to understand that stuff. If it involves math, go ahead and tell me. I can still add and subtract.
