One is the Loveliest Number...

I have spent my week in a fantastical daze.
 
In the midst of shampooing and blowdrying I've been fantasizing about today--my day off. Because for the first time in many a moon, I will spend this day off....

ALONE.


If you've read this blog at all, you know that  I love my family but am always craving (and never quite getting enough) time to myself.

This morning, I will wave goodbye to my dear ones as they leave to see his family for the weekend.  An antidote trip for the one I'm taking to New York on Saturday. 

They are leaving today. I'm leaving tomorrow.

*muffled scream*

I can do whatever I want.
 Eat whatever I want.
 Paint for hours.
Watch whatever I want on t.v.
Sew.
Read.
Lay on the grass and stare at the clouds.
I can do stuff I haven't even thought of yet.

And I'll do it alone.
 
Solitarily.
Solo.
Singly.
Unaided.
Unaccompanied.
Unassisted.

By myself.

ENJOY YOURSELF!
It sounds like a lovely day to me. I get part of the day to myself today too...and I had part of a day yesterday. I really love my friends and family but I relish "ME" time too! I think it is required to recharge ourselves sometimes!
