Last night was the first Monday night I’ve had free, in about a year. Let me tell you, I have not been missing a thing. Good grief. What do you guys watch on Monday nights? Someone needs to send me a TV schedule. There’s absolutely nothing on TV. The Olympics was on last night, but I couldn’t get into last nights events, until gymnastics. I did waste 30 minutes by going running, of course it was raining outside while I ran. Hey, it was either go run or keep sitting on the couch!

After I got home from aerobics, I ate dinner and then ironed some pants. After finishing all those things, you can imagine how surprised I was when I looked at the clock to see it was only 7:30. I got home from aerobics at 6:55. Yup, it only took 35 minutes before I realized I was going to need a new activity to occupy my free time. I’m still narrowing down my choices for activities. Knowing me, I’ll just do them all because that’s how I am. However, I’m happy to report I will not be getting a second job! I’m bored, but I don’t want to go back to working 60 hours a week. Then I become cranky Ok Chick, which no one really likes her.

Oh and because I know you’ll ask- here are the possible time fillers…..

Train for a half marathon
Attend a women’s bible study
Volunteer somewhere
Join a tennis league
Take a cooking class
Get a whole new degree
Learn how to sew-
I don’t think I’m that bored, scratch that one off the list.

If I had a lot of spare time on my hands, I always thought it would be cool to learn a second language. I would pick Italian. And not just learn it but to also become fluenent in it. Then, plan a trip to that country and you would know how to talk to those people!

I think all your suggested activities sound like fun. Well except the marathon one cuz I don't run...ever!
and seeing as I'm teaching a class on sewing, I'm bummed on your scratching that idea so quickly. ;)

but everyone's different. I hope you find something to keep you occupied.

I vote that you take the cooking class and then post the sucessful recipes on your blog on Tuesdays.

(So it's a partly selfish request, but still, you'd benefit too!)

As for Monday nights... I try not to watch TV. *shrug* However, the one show I do like starts again Labor Day, so I will then have something to watch on Monday nights.

My friend Holly suggested I learn another language. Sister #1 said...she doesn't even know English. I guess she has a point. :)

Renee-Maybe I'll give sewing a shot. I won't be good at it, but I can try.

TC- What Monday nigth show do you like?

One Tree Hill.

I discussed my obsession before.

Have you ever been in a tennis league? I always think about joining one every year, but then I never do.

I think it would be much cheaper than golf for me.
