Manic Monday #157

My collection of "do not leave without" items, which includes my ironic Ironman watch.

What would you do with an extra hour each day?

Sleep. Though I am the type who goes to bed early-ish - 10PM is early-ish, isn't it? - and I'm up at 6AM or thereabouts. I'm tired by the time I pick up the kids after school. I think I'm a 9-hour a night kind of girl rather than an 8-hour a night. I wish I were a 4- or 5-hour a night type, but I'm not.

Do you wear a watch? If so, tell us about it. If not, how do you keep track of time?

I do wear a watch. A rather ironic watch. It is a Timex Ironman watch. Ironic? Because I'm a far cry from an Ironman or an Ironwoman for that matter. But with the good weather has come my sneaker wearing. Who knows? Maybe I'll actually use that lap-timer, if I can find a lap to walk.

If it was possible, would you want to know how many days you had left to live?

I am trying to resist saying "yes". I am a control freak and leave little room for spontenaety. Though, I am also all about living every day to it's fullest. I don't succeed every day, but every day there is effort. So, really, no. I don't know that it would change anything I do or the way in which I live my life. Except maybe I'd make reservations for that Mediterranean Cruise ;)

Great post. I feel the same way about sleep. I need more but want to function on less.
