Work Full-Time, what to do on the side?

For those of you who work full-time, what do you do on the side?

Ride your bike, read, watch movies, masquerade as a superhero?

I have a kid. I don't have spare time.

When I'm off work, my daughter's with me, so I spent a lot of time at playgrounds and swimming pools, and pulling her around in the bike trailer. On the rare occasion that I have an hour or two to myself, I usually spend it at a coffee shop.

I do horseback riding a part of the year, ride my bike, swim, sleep, read and write, sometimes I cross stitch or knit. I've also played some online games but work has made me cut that down a lot. I'm not sad about that. Oh, and I visit various forums.

I also spend a decent amount of time being lazy.

Bike riding and kayaking and playing with guns, bows, slingshots and other fun junk and tree-climbing with ropes and tree work and hanging out with my wife and son and reading as much as I can and screwing off on the bike forums and grad classes in English and trying to keep my old house livable ... it's a good life and one I highly recommend other than the full time job part

I work. A lot. When I'm not working, I'm cooking for the family, or loafing online. Also 2 kids, so spend a bit of time entertaining them too.

I teach, so in the summer time I work at a produce farm---outstanding benefits, as well (great fresh produce!)... I also have officiated HS and college athletics for 35 years. I reffed college baseball and basketball ---baseball for ovcer 20 years and hoops for 17...HS football, as well---now that I had a bilateral knee replacement, I just umpire baseball.

One of my hobbies is helping to trasport rescued dogs and getting them to foster homes or adoptive homes---just helped to transport a 2 1/2 year-old PB SIberain Husky this past Saturday---went from Cleveland to Indianapolis.

Hmmm... let's see:

Monday is pot luck dinner meet
Tuesdays are usually monthly meetings for activities I am involved in
Wednesday is group ride
Thursday is climbing (summer), cubs (winter)
Friday was curling, but this fall is probably going to be fencing
Sat is my Archery (son & daughter's)
Sun looks like it will be Downhill Skiing (Daughter's)
Occasionally I'll go climbing or biking one day on the weekend.

I ride everyday. Avg about 2'ish hours a day. So review..

8am-4pm: Work
4:30-6:30ish: ride
7pm-8:30pm- Cook and eat dinner, then do dishes
8:30pm- watch tv, hang out with friends, do something else/
10:30ish- bed time!

that sums it up for the weekdays.
