So when I think of making rules, I think often that rules don't apply to me. Why I feel like I should be exempt I do not know. It's not like I deserve to have no rules, just don't really make rules for myself.
This year I have my boys in school all day and M goes 2 afternoons a week so I have about 2.5 hours by myself. At first I was sad because I love having her around. She is a great kid and I love to have her help me out! So I decided that since all the kids would be gone, I need to give myself rules.
1. no computer UNLESS it's a very specific project.
2. no phone calling
3. no texting
4. no t.v
I want to be able to have quiet time to myself. I may go for a massage or go do something little for myself or I may just clean to keep busy. But I don't want distractions. I used to do morning papers and used that time to really meditate and think about the day. I have stopped doing that and miss it. It was nice to just have time to think about things and not have distractions.
Now I get to go back to it.
