Mike has had to work the last few weekends so that usually leaves me at home by myself. Over the years, I think I’ve gotten pretty good at entertaining myself. Here’s my schedule of what I did today:
5:15am – wake up and eat breakfast
5:45-8:30 – read and watch news
8:30-10:30 – fold laundry and clean
11:30 – lunch
12:30 – drive around different neighborhoods to get a feel for what’s going on; I find this a good strategy for knowing how good a neighborhood is whenever a potential investment property comes up for sale.
2:00 – grocery shopping
3:30 – short nap
4:00 – 2 mile walk
5:00 – relax with wine & watch the rain
6:00 – write this blog post
So, there you have it. My entire Saturday. A part of me wishes I had been more productive but there is appreciation to be had in relaxing and just being happy with your own company. I expect some people would be mortified when given the prospect of spending the entire day alone with their own thoughts.
