Upon waking this morning Mike and I shared some banter about what our Saturday activities might look like on this sunny, snowy, promising day. Then Mike made a comment that went something like this: "I thought when we finished the house projects that I would have more free time on my hands... and I just don't see it."
I have been smiling about this all day. Free Time? Who is he kidding? "Free Time" has to be won / fought for / grabbed / taken by force / scheduled and guarded. Nothing is free. There certainly aren't going to be pockets of time left over at the end of the day - unless you planned it that way.
I guard my "free time" with a vengeance. I believe it is a part of mental health.
I think the same principle applies to money. There will never just be $ left at the end of the month unless you guard it with a vengeance. Free time and extra money are commodities to be treasured. The point is: Be on your guard. There are useless things in your life that are working to put a drain on both.
I started Mother Rabbit Says blog as a place to share my motherly advice for my bunnies who have left the nest... spoonfuls of wisdom that I have heard myself say again and again, which they possibly need to hear again. I love that I now have a bunny following bigger than my three girls and our wonderful blended family. This is fun.
Now I am blogging about our house renovation and Mike's cancer journey too.
