Default What to do with downtime?
I'm the article girl today (yes I read a lot of blogs ROFL) and found this one about what to do in our downtime.

I read that blog regularly as well. I have a running list of things to do when things are slow around here. The main ones on mine though are:
1. Go to Beach
2. Hop in pool
3. Go to Beach

Good article. I always wanted to know the same thing Kylie. But I do like Dawn's main ones. I think I'll add those to my list along with what I already do in those times....read forums, emails, and marketing.

Great find Kylie, thank you for sharing!

I must say though, I am really digging Dawn's downtime activities.

Can I vote for Dawn's? My only issue is I live in Ohio and we are landlocked (except for the Ohio River but um, you don't wanna 'go to' that unless you are feeding ducks), and I don't have a pool. Usually I pet our pugs on my downtime, tidy up my space a bit and brainstorm.
