I know we all read. But what else do we do?
I’ll go first:
Exercise? Forced torture but I try to do treadmill 3 x a week. Which I can manage usually 2x b/c I read while I’m doing it.
Television? Yes. If I’m home the TV is on … ABC from first thing in the morning – Good Morning America, LIVE with Kelly and Michael, Rachel Ray (under duress b/c it’s already on channel 7 and I really don’t enjoy cooking shows but she’s OK), The View, the News … 12:30 pm makes me nuts – nothing really to watch until 1 PM which is my ONLY switch – NBC – Days of our Lives (and that is only because I lost my all day ABC shows) … and then Katie Couric (but don’t love her show so that’s the time of day i start to move around) — when I don’t have my weekday shows, I look for Law and Order or SVU … yes, I’m also TV Addicted. I like the noise in the background.
Kids – I love to hang with my girls. Right now I’m in my daughter’s room and we’re watching Modern Family reruns.
Shopping – I like it. But I only go when I need things.
Friends – an occasional lunch with a friend, dinner on Sat nights with another couple …
Write – which is also a combo of writing, social media, PR etc. Really NOT a chore. And of course working on my books.
So what do you do to fill out your life besides READ? Feel free to use what I have and/or add to the list.
