As I get older, can I take comfort in getting wiser, too?
Lately I have come to realize that it really is the simple things in life that I now treasure the most, and, as a mother of two young rascals, having the house all to myself from time-to-time has become one of my very favorite things.
Sure, getting away from the daily grind is GREAT, as my previous blog post attests, but it is PURE and SIMPLE LUXURY to have one's home all to one's self! No interruptions, no distracting cries or whines, just me and whatever I need or want to do.
How was this bliss achieved? Simple actually, we shipped the boys are off to a sleepover with their Aunti! (Thank!! XOXO) And believe me, I know just how lucky we are to live relatively near family!
And what has Mommy been up to? So far... Kitchen cleaned up & dishes done. Laundry in process, one load folded & put away, and three drawers sorted through (and some old togs tossed). Floors swept -- I can't wait for winter & all the boot muck to be done & over with! Email in-box sifted through, responded to, deleted or filed. All in half the time it would take under normal household circumstances!
What's left? Blog post in progress, and a little newsletter editing to finish, then it's time to unplug and reconnect with that handsome husband of mine.
So what's your ultimate personal luxury? How would you spend "home alone" time?
Hope everyone has a great weekend, and finds a little peace & tranquility along their way.
