I find that since we up and moved to Calgary, I have less and less spare time. A typical day for me begins at 4:15. I’m catching the C-Train by 4:40 and get to work at 5:15. I usually leave between 3:30 and 4:00 and get home between 4:15 and 4:45.
Sunday’s are a real day of rest. Other than my time at church, I’m usually sleeping or watching America’s Funniest Home Videos with the Kids (although that is harder now that Battlestar Galactica is on at the same time. Thank goodness for the PVR). Saturdays and a little bit of time during the evenings are my only free time.
There are many things I’d like to do with my spare time but it’s hard to pick. On Saturday’s, my girls have Snowboarding lessons at Sunshine, so we’ll be doing that until mid March. The time we get to spend together doing that is priceless. During the week I have a couple of TV shows I like to watch (Prison Break, Heroes, Lost, The Apprentice, Survivor, Smallville, and Battlestar). Most of those usually end up on the PVR and I watch what I can on Saturday nights. I’ll take my wife on a date once or twice a month. I’d love to veg out in front of the Nintendo, but time just doesn’t seem to allow it. I might put in an hour or so of Flight Simulator, Age of Empires, or StarWars Empire at War. My Son likes playing those with me so that’s usually a fun time with him. Thursday nights are music night where I get together with an old friend and jam for a couple of hours (Rick, Dar – it would be sweet for all of us to get together like in the old days and have some musical fun). Summers are spend on the Shuswap lake wakeboarding and other water sports.
You must have some free time. What do you like to do?
