Love ... my free time

If "love" can be defined as something near and dear to the heart, then my free time is indeed a love of mine.

I don't get much free time. I work at least an 8 hour day, usually a 10 hour day. I exercise, I have a social life, I have a home to maintain. I also write as many hours a day as I can. I hope to have 4 books out this year in addition to the 20 or so already out there.

Yep. I do keep busy.

But I do give myself a free hour or so a day to just be ... free. I do whatever I feel like doing: I put my feet up, grab my tablet computer, and surf the web, or I play slots, or play game of solitaire, or read a book or watch a movie.

Almost everything minute of my day is scheduled except for my free time, whether it be a squeezed-in hour at night or a (blissful!) free day on a weekend.

Free time ... sigh. A true love of mine...

I'm amazed you can squeeze in an hour with your schedule! But you're right, free time is way up there on the best things ever list.

Oh my, do I agree. That little slot of time can make the rest of the day worth getting through.

Yep. Free time is precious. And, now that I think about it, free time could be a love thing.
