The ever-funny Stesha from hotchocolatecaramelmocha.com had a great post this week about those rare occasions when we have the house All.To.Ourselves.
*gasp!* Jump back! That really happens??
Now I don’t have the 7 kids, 4 dogs, 1 husband, and a container vegetable garden that Stesha does, but it sure feels that way sometimes as a family of four living in about 1000 square feet.
In my house, there’s a little bit of somebody..everywhere.
So what would I do? What would I do with a hypothetical 8-10 hours of peace-and-alone time?
Meditate? Of course not. It’s all I can do to stay on task to write this sentence (hey, I smell bacon) much less spend lengthy amounts of time contemplating my navel (“navel”..that’s a funny word *giggle*snort*snort*).
My list is short and sweet….kinda like my 4 year old….but only if it’s between 8 and 6 o’clock and she’s been allowed to change her clothes 116th times…
HERE’S MY LIST:
1. Roam freely about my house w/o someone saying, “where’s Mom?”
2. Take a dump without an audience.
3. Watch TV and Movies. You know, things without Muppets, cartoon characters or dancing Australians. Big people stuff.
4. Bake chocolate cookies and eat the raw dough like it’s my last day on earth without Hubs yelling “STOP! There’s raw eggs in there!”. (I’ve been eating raw cookies dough for 44 years. I ain’t about to stop now).
What would you do??
