Write for Us
So today I decided that I dont want to be on the merry-go-round of daily life. Instead I am going to spend some time by myself. This decision was met with a little concern by my kids.
What's wrong, are you sick, do you want to go to the doctors. Questions coming from all sides.
No there is nothing wrong. I would just like some quiet time.
Standing in a huddle with mouths agape, the children climbed into the van looking back at me with worry frowns on their brows.
Smile, assure them that all is ok then wave them on their way. I giggle to myself. I spend all my awake time worrying and doing things for and with my kids but today is just about me.
A large mug of hot milo, some cookies and a recliner in front of the tv. Sun sneaking between the vertical blinds, giving a gentle warmth to the room.
Surfing through the channels I find a favorite show and settle back.
Somewhere along the way I dosed off, waking to another show on the screen. Listening for any stirring in the house, no noise, a little smile to self then back to noddyland.
The joys of Me Time. Love it.
