You are a mom of ...well at least one child... which means you are constantly thinking about someone else...their sleeping, their eating, their entertainment. As you wander the house during the day you bend down numerous times to pick up toys, often the same exact toy that you picked up 10 minutes ago - and you often wonder why you even attempt. In your ear you hear, "Mama...Mama....MAAAma!" All day long. If you are in my house you hear, "Mama, do you know what?" millions of times a day.
But imagine if you had a day (JUST A DAY - because they are your life!) to have the house all to yourself. Imagine if you had two evenings to occupy yourself without the bedtime routine and the feed the whole family deal (which I do love but day after day it can get exhausting). What if you could wake up when you wanted to? Play your music! Watch what you wanted or have silence!
Wouldn't it be overwhelming! I have experienced this...once or twice...maybe three times - and though it is a gift it also is so overwhelming that it is hard to enjoy. A friend said, when she thinks of things she would do if she had the time she writes them down. Then when she gets a moment she knows where to look. So what would you do...with a day, an evening...a WEEKEND!
