What do you do when you have down time?

I mean, you've got all your laundry done, you've given up on dinner and resigned yourself to a pizza, the kid'd down for a nap, there's no disasters that need to be cleaned up? I'm always busy so now that I'm not...what do I DO?!

  • I'm into photography. I'll take pictures of the kids or I will get on the internet and pass time here or elsewhere. I also am addicted to this farm game on my iphone called papayafarm.

  • If I'm tired, I try to take a nap. Or, I catch up on my magazines and reading. As of late,when the kids go down for a nap, I've been playing DragonAge on PS3. I generally hate video games, but I'm addicted to this game.

  • My down time is a little different than yours, since my youngest has school half days. I use my down time to run errands, stop at the library and hit the gym. I have had days where i veg on the couch watching TV but those are rare. If I have nothing else to do i start cleaning out closests lol crazy i know but it is therapy for me to clean things out and organize. I will also sit down and update the family calendars. I guess there really is no true down time for me very often, i always find something i need to do.

  • I so rarely get down time that I'll spend some time playing games on the computer or sit down and watch what I want to watch on TV :-)
