My idea of a good time is getting to bed before the clock hour strikes double digits. When I was working, my off weeks were a frantic rushing around trying to get as much done as possible before the next week of work picked up again. I would rarely get to bed before 11 much less before 10!

Now that life has slowed down significantly and the kids are in bed by 7 every night (thank you long school days!!) Keith and I are able to not only have more time together, but to crash into our bed like a couple of old geezers. The only reason I am not in bed right now is because I am forcing myself to blog. I LOVE being in bed early. Yes, there are many things I should be doing, but sleeping is so much more enjoyable, right? Right!

Now if only I can get my body to realize that 9 hours of sleep is good thing, and that waking up at 5 is not acceptable, and that it is not necessary to wake up to go to the bathroom every 4 hours. For goodness sakes, what does it take to get a solid 8 hours around here?

What's your guilty pleasure? Mine is obviously sleep!

I like your blog! Glad you are blogging instead of sleeping!

I don't know if it is a "guilty" pleasure--but I HAVE to exercise everyday. It's my release. For 1-2 hours I am focused on me, and not trying to multi-task my life. When I exercise, that is all I can do, I can't hold kids, balance the checkbook, talk to apartment residents, it's just me doing something I enjoy. Oh, but I do LOVE anything chocolate, and exercising lets me keep that guilty pleasure in my life. Glad you are enjoying your extra sleep.

I wish I could get some good sleep in. I wonder when or if that will ever happen again. Glad you're enjoying not working. I miss you though.

I'm amazed that you can have your kids in bed by 7. I just take naps while mine are at school!
