I really do wish I'd wake up tomorrow morning and be invigorated!! I'd start all the projects I had planned on doing while being on spring break.

If I had more time, I'd do much more scratch cooking and also more sewing.

If I woke up energized ....

I would help dd#1 get the house totally cleaned-all the clutter moved out instead of just moved around.
I'd take my dgd's to the park and run around with/after them.
I'd go help my mom do some of her house cleaning that she's no longer able to do (my dd#1 usually does that)

If tomorrow I woke up with more energy:

1st) I would exercise to get rid of the extra 60# I carry around.

2nd) I would get rid of all the clutter I have accumulated. I have boxes that I packed from when I lived with my parents that I still have packed. That I transferred from there to our first place to here.

3rd) Clean the house and keep it visitor clean everyday!

4th) Yard work.

Boy, has mine really gone kaput!
This is the first year of my life I have began to "feel my age."
I am 49 but up until this year I still felt in my 30s.
I have arthritis in my knees and that has really, really slowed me down. Plus I really need a lot of sleep, have no desire really to exercise though I occasionally force myself.
One good thing is we have found we love square dancing and that has become an exercise for us. Since I don't have to bend my knees, I can dance without hurting.

I just really drag more than I used to.. I expected to start feeling this way around 70 not 49.

How bout you?

hugs ,train

Lots of house and yard work that have been severely neglected...

I begin most days with energy now.
But it disappears too quickly.
I would garden, clean and exercise more
