Hmmmm. What is my FTF this week? Could it be. . . being at home on a Friday instead of at work? YES! I believe that's it.
In January, I started having every Monday and Friday off and I absolutely love having the time to do the things I want to without having to rush out the door in order to arrive at work at a reasonable time. That's my FTF today--time.
I wish I could have had this parttime schedule a long time ago--I wonder how or if my life would have been different. I like to think that I would have been a more calm and relaxed person when the kids were younger, and would have mastered some of the things I'm still trying to learn--quilting, cooking, gardening. I would have been more well read--I've only started to pick up the occasional novel again and I like it a lot. I think I would have devoted more time to my friends and would have developed more new friends instead of hanging onto the old ones, who I love dearly, because it's simpler that way. I like to think I would have stayed physically fit longer--it's hard to find the time to workout either before work or after and I've neglected that for a long time.
No matter. The past is gone. Now that I do have the leisure time, I want to use it doing the things I have not done for so many years. Starting today!
