    I like some quiet time to myself everyday.

    For me, it's an hour or two after everyone else goes to bed. For my wife, it's early morning before anyone gets up.

    During the quiet time it's usually reading or just couch potato time for me..:dunno:

    Me, too, Lumpy1. Happy New Year to you and your familly. I was out of rep, and thought to myself, I owe Lumpy a couple, didn't see him around when I was handing out NY reps today. Hope the Lumpy1s stay safe & warm this winter. :)

    I like tons of quiet time too, sweetheart. I also love time with customers, where I am fully engaged in selling and finding what they think they want. Then....hours of quiet. I could live without any sound but, music, actually. XOXOXO

    I don't do complete silence well for more than a few minutes. I will usually have the radio or music playing in the background whether or not I am actually paying any attention to it. I sleep to movies or television programs that have particular 'white noise' sound tracks for me. In the car, I always have the radio going again whether I'm paying any attention to it or not.

    So 'quiet time' for me is those periods in which I give myself permission to not feel guilty that I'm not doing something useful or being productive.

    If that weren't where the meth labs were, I could also. Very definitely....
