Happy Sunday to all...
I hope this weekend has bee fun and/or peaceful...whichever you most need. There are times I need to get out and just 'play', yet at other times I need peace and quiet and heaven help the person who interrupts my 'ME' time...lol It's hard for all of us to find time to do whatever we please without either interruption or a feeling that we should really be doing something else. Those of us who live with daily pain do need to make sure our bodies get plenty of rest so we CAN have those fun times. We all have a different view of what fun or ME time is...what's yours?
If I need ME time I usually prefer to work on a quilt or read...that's if I'm alone. Otherwise just being with hubby is peaceful for me. He may put something on TV and we both may be working on our quilts just as long as no one puts demands on me. With kids and grandkids near the phone is always ringing or someone is coming through the door.
So sometimes hubby and I 'run away' for our fun or ME time. We love to go geocaching or out to get a hamburger from our favorite hole-in-the-wall take out place or maybe just pack a picnic and go for a drive. Hmmm, come to think of it, we haven't done that in a while. Think maybe I need to suggest that very soon.
How about you?? What is your idea of ME time or fun time and do you have a hard time finding time for you?

If you ask what is the single most important key to longevity, I would have to say it is avoiding worry, stress and tension. And if you didn't ask me, I'd still have to say it.
