What is more precious than gold, but cannot be bought, earned, or saved? Spoiler alert!
Most would say that time is the most valuable commodity we have. Tomorrow is Daylight Savings Time and clocks will be set back one hour. We’ll gain an hour. ONE WHOLE HOUR PEOPLE!!
Instead of sleeping in and wasting it, I came up with a few suggestions for how to use the precious 60 minutes.
– Peruse the leaked Black Friday ads.
– Write a bonus blog post.
– Go on a hiking, running, or biking adventure.
– Update your bucket list.
– Take down your Halloween decorations.
– Reorganize your Twitter account by making lists such as, Funny People, News Sources, Fabulous Friends, (don’t forget to add me! @susielindau) Don’t have a Twitter account? Use the hour to set one up.
– Print out your favorite Halloween photos.
– Pull out the waffle iron/bread maker/crock pot you never use and make something delicious.
– Read James Rollins new short story, Blood Brothers.
– Catch up on television premieres like Dracula.
– Make a list of goals you MUST attain before 2013 ends…tick, tock…
Do you still want to sleep in?
Did I want to sleep in this morning? Well, YES!! I’ve been pushing myself too hard, allowing myself too little sleep, and now I’m paying for it with a nasty cold. Believe me, I needed the excuse to get some rest.
But it’s a thought-provoking list of ways we could make us of an hour 🙂
Oops. “make use of an hour.” Yep, I’m tired. Can’t even spell.
You have to take care of yourself! Sleep is imperative for healing our bodies!! Now don’t you feel better about sleeping away your hour? I hope you feel better soon!
This is great! I got up early and went to Trader Joe’s before it got crowded. Booyah! But I must say, I hate how early it gets dark now 😦
The lighting was so gloomy here in the afternoon. I have to fight the impulse to want to go to bed!
Thanks so much!
me too! I’m trying to come up with a plan to stay active and energetic this winter! We can do it!
I did sleep in, but only because the morning before I woke up at 4:30am. I didn’t plan on that, but hey, I saw the sunset!! 🙂
I meant, SUNRISE. Maybe I should’ve slept in today…
Sometimes sleep is the best thing for you. I am happy whenever I get 8 hours which isn’t often enough! Have a great week Coleen!
I LOVE your daughter’s ’80s aerobics instructor costume — its hilarious and she looks great. I decided to allot my extra hour to the 2 year old birthday party that I had to attend on Sunday afternoon — I dealt with being attacked by a mob of ice cream covered toddlers by repeating over and over again “This is not really happening. This is a bonus hour. This is not my real life. This is not really happening. This is not an actual hour of the day.” It was surprisingly effective!
Hahahaha! That is laugh out loud funny! That is a great mantra…
My daughter wore my old 80’s aerobic outfit! Sometimes it pays to be a pack rat!
When it comes to toddler herds, you’ve got to use whatever survival tactics you’ve got. And, that was your outfit?! AMAZING!
I used my hour to sleep in. Sorry, but I did what had to be done.
I love your suggestions though. And your cute Halloween photo.

Thanks Patricia! I am freaking out at how soon it got dark! It really feels like November now…
I ALWAYS want to sleep in, Susie.
But I never do.
Such is the lot of the lowly bellman/father/husband.
It keeps you busy Hook!
I’m just putting the finishing touches on the chapter that will be winging its way to you via the cyber-highway.
Thanks again, Susie.
All great ideas! I didn’t sleep in. I was actually up earlier than usual. Haven’t been able to catch up since.
I’ve been oversleeping!!!! It makes no sense at all… 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
