This Week's Topic: What is a favorite "alone time" activity?
Alone time is pretty rare for momma!
When I am COMPLETELY alone, I love to put on my ipod (LOVE my music) and go for a jog. I do one of either two things when I'm running. I either just listen to the music and clear my mind and look at all the beautiful things in nature, or I do some pretty major thinking or praying. Guess that's three, oops. Sounds crazy that I can think and pray with music in my ears, but trust me, it's possible. And since I don't get to jog very often, I don't make it very far, but I hope that I can work up to a longer jog soon. Someday I secretly hope to run a marathon! I know it's just a dream, but you gotta start somewhere!
Usually my alone time consists of short snippets of my family sleeping. During those short times, when I can't actually leave the house (because they are too young to be alone and hubby is gone) I find myself vegging on the couch and watching some of my favorite shows (General Hospital, Greys Anatomy, Private Practice, Brothers & Sisters or Army Wives) that I DVR, but usually delete because I never really get to watch them. If I'm not doing that, then I'm usually on the computer catching up. I don't usually get the opportunity to get on the computer if my husband is here because he is usually on it or he's sleeping and the computer is right next to him and he can't sleep if I'm pecking on the keys!
Also on the rare occasion, I might make a quick trip to the grocery store by myself. It's not the greatest entertainment, but you sure can get a lot done in a short amount of time!
When I was going to bootcamp and getting up at 4:30am, I would come home and everyone was still sleeping. I could get almost all my chores done before 7am and have the whole day to work on projects, when Kenidi
She can be a little stinker sometimes!
But THIS is Kenidi MOST of the time!
would allow it! Those were some very productive days. I miss them!!!!
