Days like that seem perfect.
Then there are days filled with driving cars or building Geo Trax for one to many hours for my sanity. I found myself mentally checking out, wishing for the day when I could just have some time to myself!
A good friend of mine watches Ryder for me when I volunteer in my kids' classrooms but this isn't really me time.
Last Friday Ryder was invited to a friend's house for a little boy playdate. A little over two hours all to myself! How I was going to love this time!
I dropped him off, got back home..... and it was quiet... too quiet.
I suddenly noticed how quiet my house could be, how big and empty it suddenly seemed.
I looked around wondering what I should do. I sat down and started working on my novel. Luckily the ideas started flowing and I was soon lost in writing and the two hours went very quickly, but when it was time to go pick him up I was so excited to see him.
So now those days where I feel like I can't take driving cars and trains any longer; I think back to that last Friday and how alone I felt and realize it is going so fast and soon I will have a lot more alone time.
You know, I am not sure how much I am going to like it.
