There is Work, there is Play,

Friday, June 29, 2012

and then there are chores...

Working a 40++-hour week, plus commuting to and from work, does not leave a lot of free time during the week.

I choose to spend my evenings at the gym. Working out is playtime. Working out is stress relief. Oh, and they say it's good for me, too.

I choose to spend my weekends on the trail. Hiking is playtime. With every step I leave a part of the week's stresses and hardships behind.

... and then there are chores. Pesky things like grocery shopping, paying bills, laundry, cleaning, keeping up the yard, and and and.

Well, it's summer and I have play on my mind.
However, I will need to sacrifice one weekday evening to chores in order to keep my life on track.

With a little bit of planning there is time to get it all done.

Last weekend's hike: Mount Wilson Trail

    i am not very organized during the week. i forget lots of little tasks that need to be complete and then i need to rush to get them done.
i sometimes just make lists and focus to get a task done.
