10. Take an hour for yourself. Spend an hour away from electronics (TV and cell phones included) and use that time for yourself.
I did 30 minutes of yin yoga and spent (more than) 30 minutes reading Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris. Some of the stories are hilarious, but some are a little too uncomfortable to be funny. In my opinion, anyway.
11. Clean out the toy chest. This includes all the toys in the home (pet, child, etc). Work with your family members and sort through items you may no longer need.
I cleaned out the cat basket. Diamond helped. He spent a lot of time studying the pile of toys to be given away. I got the feeling he didn’t completely approve. Don’t feel too bad for him, though. He’ll be getting some new toys for Christmas.
In addition to a bunch of cat toys, my Steamtown Marathon shirt (it’s always been too short) and an old camera were added to the donation box.
