After commuting, sleeping, eating and working - I have 4 hours left in the day (weekdays) to spread amongst excercising, art, blog, phone, reading, cleaning, shopping, friends, sewing, relaxing. I need to add excercise into every day so I'll give that 0.5 hours/day right now (better than the 0 that I currently have budgeted) . I can eliminate reading as I listen to books on tape on the way to and from work (just love double dipping) . So I have about 3.5 hours for art, sewing, blog, phone, cleaning, shopping, vegging, TV, cooking, Dr. appointments, hair and nails, etc, etc, etc. Adding the weekends into the total time makes me feel better, unstructed time always does.
Obviously, something has to give. I don't want it to be time with friends and family, or art, or sewing - cleaning and shopping sound like the first things to go if you ask me.
