    I Have Learned

    Down Time Is Important.

    We raidsed eight girls and balanced two careers. It was all possible because  we recognized that we needed time for ourselves. Things can become really frustrating if you don't take time to recognise your own needs, Please remember to do so,

    I find that the busier I am,

    the more down time I have. I don't know if I really have more down time or if it just seems that way because I am so efficient - I have to purposefully not do anything - or I just keep going and going until I can't stand it any more.
