I don't work so I have a lot of free time. Though, morning is the busiest day I get up early, tend to my daughter and get her ready for school. After all of these mundane task I get to enjoy my free time doing something worthwhile. So when I'm not hovering over and chaperoning my daughter, I normally read books and often times go to the library. In spite of my daily humdrum I still manage to make time for myself and do the things I love most. Reading books is my favorite pastime.
