In my world, the best way to keep busy is to work. Whether you work part-time, freelance, or full-time; as a front desk receptionist, cake baker (that is what I wanted to do when I was little), or you bill a zillion (I know impossible) hours as a partner in a law firm– who cares?? It is important for our well-being to keep our minds actively going!!! Do you remember when your grandmother used to played bingo? That $70.00 she won was not going to add to her bank account, but it did keep exercising her brain. If you are lucky enough to have free time over the summer and have sent your kids away to enjoy theirs, I found a wonderful article that will give you some helpful suggestions on what to do: http://www.parenthood.com/article-topics/10_things_to_do_while_the_kids_are_away.html. Time does fly and the summer is over before you know it. So enjoy!!!!
