Manic Monday

I like these. Friday Fill-Ins, Manic Monday, Wordless Wednesday. I may look around for some others. They're pretty helpful when you're in a writing rut.

Manic Monday....Time

What would you do with an extra hour each day?

This would totally depend on whether it was just another hour or an hour of time all alone! If it was just an extra hour in my every day life, I'd probably get a little extra sleep. I'm up early, just after 5:00, to do my morning routine before the kids get up. I don't ever feel like I'm really rested. I have always been more of a night owl than an early riser, but kids forced the issue. I still stay up later than I should.

If I actually had time alone, I would do something creative. Sew, scrap, craft...I don't get to do those things as often as I like lately. Mason canNOT be left unsupervised. Ever. Bad things happen. Marker on walls. Things flushed that shouldn't be. Escaping outside and down the street. So...getting wrapped up in any kind of creative project is not always possible when he is awake and running full speed ahead. I'd love to have a little more time to myself.

Do you wear a watch? If so, tell us about it. If not, how do you keep track of time?

I used to wear a watch, every single day. Michael gave me the loveliest watch a few years ago for Christmas and I wore it all the time. Unfortunately, it broke about a year ago. I bought a couple of other watches since then, but haven't really gotten in the habit of wearing either of them. I think I just didn't like them as well as the one from Michael.

As for telling time, I have my iPhone and I usually pull that out to see the time. When I'm teaching at church on Sunday, I always have to ask one of the girls (and then they whip out their phones to tell the time.)

If it was possible, would you want to know how many days you have left to live?

Tough one. I should just answer no. But I'm the type of person that thrives on deadlines. The sooner something is due, the better I get at accomplishing stuff that needs to get done. This seems to apply in all aspects of my life. I love having a definite time frame.

But...I also know myself. I am a procrastinator. And I'm afraid knowing might cause me to put off some of the important stuff for far too long. I'm going to have to answer no to this one.
