I have a mile long to-do list, but instead I’m sitting here writing. I will really have to get started on the paperwork that I have let pile up this week, but that can wait. Because I need a few quiet minutes to myself. As any parent knows, we just sometimes need quiet time alone to relax, to decompress, and to just be.
I’ve been alone without a partner for a few years now. I’ve grown accustomed to having the bed to myself and to making my own schedule as much as I can with the kids. But because they both drive and dinner is our meal together, I have some freedom that I never had before now. And I like it.
I often wonder how if/when I met someone special, how he’d fit into the new freedom I’ve been enjoying. I imagine that it would be an interesting change that I would probably like, but I’m in no hurry. I like ‘lazy’ Sundays when I can read, watch TV, cook and just relax with no place to go. I’m one of those who can stay in my lounge clothing all day on a Sunday and never shower because I don’t have any place to go.
Sundays have always been my favorite day because of that, especially now that there aren’t sports or activities that the kids have to go to and I have to be there. The day of rest as my Mother used to call it. Tranquil Sunday mornings always beckon me with the promise of a good home-cooked meal shared in the evening after a day filled with relaxing.
So what are you doing on this lovely Sunday afternoon?
