Reclaim Your Free Time!

"Culturally, there's now a vision of work without end as the central focus of one's existence--but leisure is a crucial part of the American Dream."

These words really spoke to me this morning as I lay in bed, about to get up and start my day. Today's plan was to include a complete overhaul (ie: Spring cleaning) of my house. I still intend to take advantage of this day to whip things into shape, but first I'm taking a moment to blog and do something that I enjoy.

"To reclaim our free time--and enjoy it--'shifting our standards is critical... our expectations that we can get everything done are totally out of sync with our lives.' We would be happier if we prioritized time for ourselves, thereby allowing ourselves to tackle our responsibilities later in a better frame of mind. In our survey, women who set aside free time on a regular basis even though they had not finished all their chores were happier, more cheerful, and more optimistic."

Dangerously Delicious

Today I discovered an amazing new taste sensation... Girl Scout Trefoil cookies + Trader Joe's mango butter. Yum! I ate an embarrassingly large quantity of these today when I got home from work. Oops!

PS: I just realized that this month marks my THIRD ANNIVERSARY of blogging. I have to admit, I was completely shocked by this, and had to go back to reread my first post and verify that it really was written 3 years ago. Where did the time go?!

Fabulous Flowers

So this might just be my most favorite time of year because of all the flowering trees. Yesterday I got out and had some fun with my new camera!

Good Weekend

I'm happy to report, that I've had a good weekend. I worked hard at my Mary Kay business and as a result got to spend lots of time with good friends. My in-laws are still here visiting, so we went shopping together. And the icing on the cake was a delicious brunch at my favorite Sunday local: Annie's. Many people from my dad's side of the family were there for our annual family get-together. Twenty-one in all. That was pretty darn good for the B family!

It's now 8:30 pm, I'm sitting around the TV with my hubby and in-laws catching up on high-lights from the Oscars, and listening to LOTS of Portuguese. Nice and relaxing, but maybe it's time to turn in early? I have a new book on my Kindle that I'm ready to start...

Good night to you all!
