As with any hobby this blog takes up a significant amount of time; which has me thinking what did I do with my spare time before? I know I read a lot. Probably more than I read now. I’d go to the library and come home with a giant bag full of books and I would read them all. I’d also spend about $200 at the bookstore more often than I’d like to admit. The book spending really hasn’t changed but now I’m usually buying books for other people rather than for myself (hello giveaways).
I think I used to watch a lot more television. I remember enjoying vegging in front of the tele but these days I’m only watching TV with a laptop. I’m commenting or just staring at an empty post thinking of what to write. I rarely ever sit and watch without doing something else. I will say that certain shows (Outlander and Game of Thrones) are laptop free times. I need my whole attention dedicated to those beauties.
I used to keep my house a lot cleaner too. I let things slide much more than I used to. Family members used to tease me about the pristine nature of my home but I’ve not heard that in a long time. Clean laundry waiting to be put away on the couch? It’ll be there when the kiddo is ready to wear it or I’m ready to hang it up.
So I guess I read books, watched TV and cleaned? That really doesn’t seem all that exciting now does it?
Sometimes I feel overwhelmed or completely zapped of post ideas but the idea of not blogging seems so strange I can’t really picture how it would be.
