This month my Blog – o – sphere group posed the question: What is one thing you really love to do & why?
My one thing I really like to do, to outsiders must seem super lame…
I like to be alone…I’m NEVER alone, like never. I have 4 kids ages 6, 8, 10, & 13. Its certainly not as bad as it was when they were babies; you know diapers, bottles & constant supervision. But they certainly require my time & attention. At these ages, they demand a different set of skills other than just keeping them alive. Now it seems like the management of the paper that comes in the house is overwhelming; between school & 4H record books, its tough keeping track of who has library which day, & whose homework book is due back to school when & who has a 4H Club meeting tonight (hoping their record book is up to date).
Here are my hillbillies:
So, the time after they go to bed is golden to me. The problem is I stay up way too late, just enjoying my time by myself in silence. It feels like such a waste to go to bed at 9 or 10 at night. I end up sitting up in bed, reading, replying to emails, sketching new silversmithing ideas, Facebooking, Pintresting, reading saved articles, all number of ridiculous ‘time wasters’.
Check out the other members that are posting on this topic – I’m sure they’ll have much more glamorous things to do with their time!
