If you had an hour to yourself, how would you spend it...
I saw this prompt somewhere and it is actually hard. If I were completely honest, I would probably spend it cleaning. Isn't that the most boring thing you've ever heard? EVER. But if by chance my house was just cleaned by our cleaning ladies, then I would probably go to yoga. Which is not boring but something I do almost every single day, so perhaps still not a very exciting answer.
So lets pretend I have a clean house and have already gone to yoga. And I find myself ALONE. In my house. With no one. OMG the possibilities are endless. I would maybe walk to Starbucks and purchase a soy misto and walk quietly home sipping my coffee without 100 questions about bugs, plants, could a plane land on us, why do bees sting, etc. (I love these questions so much, but silence would be an interesting change). Then I could sit outside on my back porch, continuing to drink my coffee while flipping through US Weekly or Real Simple or the other 800 magazines I have stock piled. Maybe I would talk on the phone and REALLY listen to the other side because little people are not requesting something from me. Maybe I would take a bath because that sounds indulgent and light candles and play my ipod and have lots of bubbles. I could write a letter to a friend so they get some snail mail for no reason except fun! I could get a pedicure. Ooh a pedicure.
Well, it sounds like I would have no problem filling a single hour. What about you? If you had an hour to yourself, how would you spend it?
