Who am I?
Who am I when my kids are off at school?
Who am I when everyone is out of the house?
What do I like to do with my free time?
Dishes, laundry, dusting or bathing the dog?
Shall I get a massage?
Go shopping, read a book, go for a hike?
Is this what happens when free time is so rare?
Have a I lost myself?
Today is the first day in a long time that I have no commitments other than dropping and retrieving the kids from school.
That means 6 hours of unscheduled free time.
I am so lost.
So many options.
So much time.
I opted to water the garden, change bedding, read blogs, wash dishes, eat a peanut butter and banana sandwich, dust the piano, mop the kitchen floor, blare itunes and enjoy the uninterrupted time.
No one needs anything. No one needs me.
No cares that I have yet to shower.
No one needs a snack.
No one is arguing.
I hate to admit it but I kinda like this time.
Also, hate to admit it but it is a wee bit lonesome around here.
Maybe I should go out...
