My spare time has been very different since my move, and I honestly wish I was doing more crafting and going out to dance classes. I have been spending too much time playing video games and watching movies. I would feel like I had actually accomplished something if I had something physical to show for it, and that would make me feel a little better about myself at the moment.

On some of those other fronts, my general policy is to only have one project going at a time per craft. This helps me finish things and I just switch crafts if I don't feel like working on my project at a given time.


Yeah...saying no to events is hard. I feel like I'm missing something if I don't go, but damn, there's just always SO MUCH going on. It's tricky to find that balance.


I am totally with you in theory. :) And have actually done much in the past (tv - altho the dvr allows me the freedom of when i watch things) definitley i have been saying no to books.

I am trying to get back to my rule (that I let slide) where all new books in my house had to live on the one shelf until read and returned to their owners (or the library or were passed on or found a new home on a perm. shelf i purchased them) That was a great rule that worked really well for a while. then i hit some big used book sales...

My big downfall is saying no to events and things to do with friends. I never want to say no to those and then I end up overbooked and running around like a chicken with my head cut off.

I hear you on this one!
Seems to me that you have a great plan for how to get the best out of your spare time.

I have been doing the same thing myself, just trying to take things slow and enjoy the process of things rather than just the finished results. It´so much more rewarding!
