Today is just one of those days when I fantasize about being alone. I think I even might have yelled at some point “Can I just go to the bathroom by myself for once!” Oh, how I miss silence.
I was just thinking yesterday about how I spend about 50% of my thoughts on my kids; 25% on cleaning, cooking, taking care of life-stuff. That only leaves 25% for the rest of my life- like God, my husband, my friends, my business, my blog, not to mention myself. In my pre-kid days, that 25% was the whole 100. Its crazy how life changes so quickly.
OK, back to my fantasy… You know that old question, if you were stranded on a deserted island, what 5 books would you want to have. That’s my fantasy right now- to be stranded on an island all alone, with only 5 books. To be honest, I would prefer if my husband could be stranded with me. Its my fantasy, so I’ve decided he was on the ship that crashed. Now I feel worried about where my kids are. Were they on the ship? No, they are safe at home with Grandma and Grandpa. Whew, I feel better. Back to that deserted island.
Since my husband isn’t a big reader, I get to pick the books. First, a Bible. We need that. Next, a notebook, so I can record my thoughts. I need to write to think. Of course, and IPad, so Dan can have his technology (technically, it can become a book…). Fourth, the Lord of The Rings Trilogy- the greatest book ever written. And last, the Harry Potter Series, because I just love them.
All right, I’m ready to get stranded. Any time now the screaming and whining can stop…
