the time just after the kids fall asleep and hubby is done studying is often the highlight of my day. it's when i get to just relax and BE. sometimes hubby and i watch netflix or play a game. sometimes he surfs the internet while i read or draw, or he plays video games while i sit next to him and relax.
pretty much every night, though, i do at least one crossword. hubby lovingly teases me and calls me an old lady, but hey--i won't be getting alzheimer's at a young age!
music is something that means so much to me. i play the piano, and having music come from my fingers is something i don't take for granted. listening to music really affects my mood. it makes me happy, silly, sad, reflective, calm, or even angry. but music, all kinds of music, can bring joy not only to me, but to everyone in the world.
and, of course, the thing that relaxes me the most is sleep. lots and lots of sleep. long naps, short naps, cat naps, all night long...i LOVE to sleep! and believe me, nothing helps you feel better about yourself and about your life than sleep. it really does solve everything!
what do you do to relax?
