5 Things to Do More Often

I mentioned to my husband I was working on this post. I started to ask him if he had any suggestions, when he began to smirk. I could see a glint in his eye. I decided not to ask for any suggestions. His list and my list would not be the same.

I imagine his list would say:

  1. Ride your bike more.
  2. Walk three miles every day.
  3.  Organize  your office.
  4. Dust your office.
  5. Put everything back in its place immediately after using said item.

My list, on the other hand,  says:

  1. Build in time to go out with friends more often. Coffee, lunch, happy hour, dinner are all options I need to remember for get-togethers with friends. Life gets busy and I get stuck in the rut of being home.
  2. Clear my desk. Stacks of papers and books seem to grow and grow. I need to find a place for each.
  3. See more movies. I love those recliner seats in movie theaters. When I can get to the first showing of the day, it is not only cheaper, but there are fewer people. I just forget that is an option for my day.
  4. Take my mom out for lunch. I try to savor every bit of time I can with my mom. She’s 87 and seems more frail every year. We need to spend quality time together, just chatting about her life or my life in general.
  5. Sit, sip, and savor a lovely glass of wine before dinner. Doesn’t that sound good? Usually I am so busy preparing dinner, I don’t have time to enjoy a glass of wine before dinner. Often when I have a guest for dinner, they sit at the counter, sip wine and visit with me while I’m finishing up preparations. I need to try this out too.

There you have it, my five things to do more often. Who knows, I might even do a few from my husband’s list too. 🙂
