Everybody needs at least a small amount of time that they consider their own, with no obligations. I have lots of time to myself, but even if there is some chess or blogging involved, it usually is hung heavy with the obligation of the pills or drugs or nutrition or anti-constipation routines I need to do. Or shower or dress or get somewhere without falling down. I like having a predictable, homebody routine. That makes me feel good. But with doctor appointments, construction, and kid events, I don't always have a sense of 'me time.'
I know, it breaks your heart. I don't even have a job, and I'm complaining.
