So today, when a friend has taken him for 8 hours (childcare swapping), what do I do?
Go to the beach and read a book? That would be nice.
Take a hot shower and a long nap? Mmm...sounds relaxing.
Pamper myself with a day at the spa? Slightly out of budget but still appealing.
Nope. I go to the grocery store. Correction - I breeze through the grocery store uninterrupted! It was simple and glorious.
Now I have a tall cup of joe and I am going to sit in front of this lap top and work on my novel until the clock strikes twelve and my computer turns back into a pumpkin. Resisting the urge to just do a bunch of chores is requiring some major will power but there is always tomorrow. Today, I am free to concentrate and need to take advantage of that.
Right after I finish updating my blog.
