Sleeping in is the best. I tend not to sleep in all that late when I have the opportunity to do it, but it’s soooo nice when I get the option to do it. Just snuggle in the bed, half asleep, and not be expected to get up or go anywhere. With my custody schedule, I get one day every two weeks to do this. One day in every 14. It makes me appreciate it so much more than I ever did before. When I was with my ex, there was never sleeping in, ever. Either the kids got me up, or on the extremely rare occasions grandma took them, they were being dropped off as soon as possible.
Anyway, I’m grateful now that I have the opportunity.
1. A relatively easy morning with my children, before dropping them off with their dad.
2. Plenty of me time. A little cleaning and laundry, and catching up on Outlander.
3. Two walks by myself. I found a pretty little park about ten minutes walk from my place, and while it’s not very child friendly (not much grass area, a large pond) it’s gorgeous and an ideal place to meditate or read a book.
5. Girl time with my friend and a really fun show. It was a good time. Battle Toys puts on a great performance.
