School has started!!! Most importantly my kids are loving being back in school. But equally important I have hours to myself. Well Silas is still here sleeping, but still ALONE!! And on Thursdays, my mom takes the kids all day and I have a whole day by myself. Could anything be more fabulous? Except for the fact that occasionally I hear something in the baby monitor and worry that their could be a serial killer upstairs. But other than that it is glorious.
This is supposed to be my productive time. My get the house organized, get the menus planned, get the errands run, be an adult day. Or at least my get ahead of the game in blogging day. And it will be. Another day. Today it is my lay on the couch, watch a bad movie and enjoy the relative quietness of my day. I don’t want to do a productive thing (although I did unload the dishwasher and write this here blog post). I watched a horribly bad chic flick the hubby refused to watch with me. I got my hair colored. I read a real live adult book. I sat on the couch and starred into space a bit. Impressive right?
There will be plenty of days to conquer to do lists. And plenty of days to relish with my family all around me. But there is nothing like a day all by yourself with nothing at all on the calendar. It is good for the soul.
What would you do if you had a whole day to yourself?
