Carpe Recession!

Love this post by the Merry over at Cranky Fitness, about living every day as if you've already been laid off. In other words, do the stuff now that you think you'd only have time for if you were unemployed. Knowing my worry wart–personality, losing my job would cause a freak-out so big I'd never have the time or desire to do anything except frantically try to drum up new work from the confines of my apartment. But here's what I'd like to think I would do if my schedule suddenly "opened up" (and FYI: I really hope it doesn't!!!!!!)....

1. Make my own headboard.
I'm 29 years old, married and my bed still looks like it belongs in a college dorm room! I don't have the pennies to spend on a fancy one you find at a furniture store, but I think I could make my own.

2. Do yoga.
There's a yoga DVD on my living room shelf, and every time I catch site of that poor dusty box, I think about how good it would be for me--body, spirit, etc--to strengthen and stretch with some daily asanas.

3. Swim more often.
I'm always* battling other swimmers for lanes at the busy UChicago pool. With the ability to make my own schedule I'd go at non-busy lunchtime hours.
4. Get to know my bike. I've wanted to get my bike adjusted to my body and form for more than a year. But I find a zillion other more important things to do every weekend, so my bike doesn't fit me too well. Bonus points: Learning how to change a tire and take the bike apart.
