Lengthening days

Ever been afraid to have sex during the day?  Soon, you’ll have your chance.  Starting today, I am enacting a plan to lengthen the number of hours in a day.  Eventually, it will be dark during the day, at least for a while.

A work-at-home mom with twins cannot possibly be expected to get it all done in the measly 24-hour period allotted.  Unless, of course, you are an insomniac and don’t care much for sleep – you know, that thing that allows you to recharge your batteries, helps you to hang on to what beauty you have left, and gives you a few moments of alone time.

This brings to mind the woman who spent one year “Living Oprah”.  For one year, she did everything Oprah suggested to “Live Your Best Life”.  Well, as you can imagine, it got a little ridiculous.

So, what would “living your best life” look like? Have you ever thought about it?  No advice from others, no “have to”, no “you need”… what is your “best life”?  Here’s what a day in my “best life” would include:

  • A minimum of 30 minutes of yoga every morning
  • Laughing with my kids
  • A clean house
  • All laundry – done
  • A stocked pantry and fridge at all times (no last minute trips to the store for butter)
  • A fresh cut salad for lunch and a healthy dinner every night
  • Spending quality time with my husband
  • Enjoying a coffee break with a girlfriend
  • Reading a chapter in a good book
  • Having a glass of wine with dinner
  • Taking a nice hot bath, with bubbles!

Woah!!!  I think I just dozed off.  Was I dreaming?
