The past couple weeks, I've found myself with quite a bit of extra time on my hands. Somehow, I've usually been able to finish up work-related tasks in under an hour a day, and less than that on tracking finances or doing household tasks. Now that we don't have a house or so much "stuff" to worry about, I'm magically finding myself left with lots of time to fill! This is a good problem to have, I think. As much as I've heard how it's good advice to have "down time" to just relax and do nothing, I still find that a challenge. I try to play pool, or sit around and relax, which is nice here and there. But sooner or later, I feel like I've just got to be up and doing something "productive". I continue to make lists of things I want to accomplish during the day, or the week, and work to accomplish them, but the lists are less stringent than they use to be. I only list a few tasks, and I try to make them things that are truly important to me - not just mundane stuff that needs to be done anyway. This week, my list has included things like "Play Mario Kart with my kids", "Study Spanish", and "Make videos of our Panama trip". But the two things I've probably spent the most time on the past few weeks have been composing music, and typing my old journals.
