After dinner is when I make sure I am prepared for the next day by packing lunches/snacks for Babyface and me, prepping the next night's dinner (if it's my night to cook), have my workout clothes and grown up costume are ready to go, etc. And since I rise well before daybreak, my evenings are already pretty short since I go to bed early.
Last week (unbeknownst to My Heart's Desire), I instituted a TV free weeknight experiment. I was able to get so much more done during the evenings. I had a nice chat with a faraway friend, created a photo calendar for my dad's birthday, and got a good amount of reading done. I didn't feel like my evenings were so rushed. I also went to bed earlier and that made my mornings more pleasant. On Thursday night we did watch one show, at his insentience, then I turned the TV off.
I have a bunch of projects that I've had on the back burner, including updating Babyface's baby book and crocheting a baby blanket for a child (before she's old enough to crochet herself). I love reading and like to be able to read without falling asleep in the middle of the page.
