Relax marla...having all the time to do the things you wanted to do IS overwhelming however just make a list and prioritize things you want to get done. Tackle each thing on your list one at a time. :) You'll find your natural rhythm and be humming along soon enough!

It is an adjustment.......and takes some time.

It could take about a year to get used to the fact that you can do WHAT you want.......when you want. If you have too much to do....that can be a good thing, just space it out.

If you don't have enough to keep you busy do some volunteer work. Hobbies?......go to different groups for those hobbies.

I echo the volunteer work, making lists and maybe even a part time job doing what you want to do. Getting out and being around people doing something you enjoy will do wonders for you. Go for it! :cheergrl:
Starting your day off with a nice walk, early before it gets hot ,will get you off to a great start.

I agree with the making a list...writing down everything you want and need to do...taking one step at a time...tackling one thing on your list at at time...just taking baby steps...it takes time to acclimate to your new lifestyle...The other suggestions are also good...maybe take each suggestion, try implementing one at a time in your day...before you realize it, you'll have a new and comfortable daily routine...:grouphug2

If you're talking about chat, it's not you, it's just that people pop in and out of chat while they look thru the Village.:)
