Days I Want vs. Days I Have

My Perfect Day:
Sleep in until 8:30a.
Read my book until about 9a.
Eat breakfast (I love cereal, particularly Cocoa Puffs or Raisin Bran)
Watch a movie and knit.
Spend about an hour online catching up on emails and blogs.
Eat lunch.
Go swim for an hour (in my indoor pool, money being no object).
Get a massage (again, money's no object).
Knit some more.
Play a board game with Dave and the boys (who, up until this point, have been discreetly absent).
Eat dinner.
Watch TV/hangout with the family.
Put the boys to bed.
Sit out back with Dave while reading our books.
Long bath.
Bed at 10p.

My Actual Day:
Wake at 6a.
Go to basement and label bags for an hour (while playing some movie in the background on my laptop).
Put together hooks.
Come up at 8a and eat breakfast/make breakfast for the kids (at least I get my cereal!).
Go back to basement and work my "real" job while putting hooks together and doing laundry (and sneaking in some blog reads here and there).
Come up around noon and make lunch for me and the boys.
Go back to basement for more of the same.
Around 2p I run errands (coupla times a week) or work out for 20 minutes (loving the Gold's Gym Cardio Workout with the Wii!).
Go to garage and make hooks (drilling, cutting, sanding) until dinnertime. (So roughly 3p-6p).
Make/eat dinner.
Watch some TV with the family while putting together more hooks.
Put the boys to bed.
Put more hooks together.
Bed somewhere btw 10p-11p.

I did take the boys to the public pool for an hour and a half yesterday!

I know I've been blogless for awhile but it's pretty boring around here with all the hook making. I have 2 FO's to share and hope to be able to share soon.

What's your perfect day?

Le sigh, Ruth!

P.S. Only 3 more days to enter my contests!

ouch, if you lived closer we could help you bag and have it be done so much faster! I cannot complain to much since i "semi retired". I still seem to be busy crazy with a long list of to do things. never enough hours!

I had missed you and am glad that it was nothing more serious than just life. No highs no lows just life plodding along.

Wish I was there to help label and assemble hooks. Heck, my girls could even play with and entertain/babysit your boys. We could drink beer. I plan on coming by to see you and buy tons of hooks at Sock Summit. I live 1/2 hour from there. Happy Fourth of July!

Wow! You have been busy, busy with the hooks. But you'll be so happy when you sell out at Sock Summit.

I would have a cleaning lady, a gardener, and a decorator come over and solve all the house problems/issues. Money being no object!
