16. I am thankful for down time. Because I only work 20 hours a week most weeks, I have a lot of free time on my hands. Sometimes I find it difficult to fill all of my free time, but recently I've done a pretty good job of keeping myself busy. I've been rereading the Twilight books, preparing for Breaking Dawn part 1 this weekend, cleaning our apartment to get ready for early Thanksgiving with my in-laws, and being an excellent big sister by going to high school football games and band competitions to watch Jake beat his drum and march around. I find that when I keep myself busy, I am the happiest. I don't usually care for down time, but I am trying to embrace the time I have to myself. I know I won't always have these large blocks of time to do anything I want, so I'm going to make the most of them. I don't want to look back in 5 years in between diaper changes and naps, wishing for some peace and quiet and wondering why I wasted so much precious me time.
