As a mother of a newborn and a 2-year-old, I really don't get a lot of down time, but every once in a while, I find both of the kids sleeping, and my chores all done. I'd like to pick up a hobby that gives me something to look forward to; something that gives my day a little more substance and makes me feel a little more accomplished. My problem is that when I have down-time, it's maybe 10-30 minutes a few times a day(that's a good day), so whatever I'm doing has to be something that doesn't take a lot of time, and is something I can drop right down and tend to my children when they need me. Right now, I get on the computer on my down time(which is what I'm doing right now...) for lack of anything better to do, but this just really doesn't cut it for me.
Any suggestions? What do you all do?
