In Defense of Alone Time

So right now I'm gettin so busy during day with the exercisin and the medicatin and the nappin and the eatin and the paper workin and the plannin and the bill payin and the phone callin and the emailin and the cats . . .

that I am not the bloggy that I used to be.

But I do have some good blog post titles building up in my and so here one is right here:

In Defense of Alone Time .

I am alone and awakey-wakey-no-mistakey . . . probably right now . . . about 10 hours of the 24 in a day.

Thus, an equation:
24 hours in a day
-9 hours sleepin at nighto
-3 hours at a doc appointment (travel incl)
-2 hours of visitor palsy walsies
---
10 hours of Cystic Gal Activity

Of this I spend time doing all that stuff up there, described as:

"the exercisin and the medicatin and the nappin and the eatin and the paper workin and the plannin and the bill payin and the phone callin and the emailin and the cats . . ."

Thus, a second, funnier equation:

10 hours awakey in a day
-1.5 hours exercising (cardio, yoga)
-2 hours medicatin (nebs, airway clearance, etc)
-2 hours nappin (if I'm good and get up)
-1.5 hours eatin (3-5 meals, yum)
-1 various tx related "get your papers in order" business
-1 neurotic worries over life/death
-1 phone calls I accept begrudgingly
-1 emailin' I accept lovingly
-all remaining time for cats.
---------------------------------
As you can see, cats aside, I have -1 hour to spend with myself.

No wonder I miss me so very very much.

Also, I offer you THIS ARTICLE in defense of my alone time and yours. The people here aren't even facing particular troubles and they get their alone time. Yay them!!

Don't you miss you?

  2. Silly CysticDad, somehow you managed to raise three introverted children. It must be a product of our inescapable genetically superior intelligence.

  3. I am impressed- only an hour for life/death thinking? I thought that was what alone time was and busyness was to keep all those BIG thoughts at bay.

    Love you. Come to A TALE OF TWO CITIES (see I am still working, ya never know who might be reading this blog!).
