I would say I definitely have a different schedule these days. Both of our kids are out of the house, and although it is sad to not have them with us, we are happy with them for their independence. At the same time, my wife is in her busiest season of the year, traveling for her university, which means it's just me and the dog at home. This gives me extra time to work if I want, draw, play the piano, exercise, read, whatever- even cook, why not... Maybe that's something else I can learn. I put some water in a pot, added a potato, then a beet, some a couple cloves of garlic, some chunks of ginger, some leeks, and a few strips of bacon and squirts of hot sauce. Turned out fantastic. Maybe I've got cook in me after all.
