This is ridiculous. I feel like I should be whispering. I feel as if I am doing something wrong. Every year for the past 31 years I've had to wake up one or more of my three children for school. Cook breakfast. Make sure everyone arrived to school on time with all of the proper supplies. Not so this year.
My last child at home is a freshman now. She is impressing me. She is waking on her own. Fixing a small breakfast ( She's not very hungry in the morning.) getting herself together and off she goes to school. Wow. What to do, what to do ?
I will get myself together after she leaves and run some errands. I also must go and work out. My husband has left again for work and I won't see him for two weeks. So I have no excuse to not exercise! Yes I must get off of this chair and move! But it's just so nice not to have to. Katie even brought me a third cuppa Joe! Wait a minute here. Am I in the right house. Am I awake ? It's all so confusing. I'm used to being the one that does everything in the morning. Who's life is this ?
Perhaps our Lord has decided that I can slow down a bit now. Maybe that's it . It's not like I don't have anything to do. I need to go to the library, post office, Curves and I do have work to do at church. But all of these things can be done any day of the week that I choose. I also want to start a quilt for Katie. And I have two painting projects and several crochet projects that I can start at any time. But for this short period of time this morning, I think I will just sit and relax with that third cuppa Joe my Katie brought me!
This is a bit difficult for me to get used to. I am not complaining. I am just feeling a bit lost. Since my two strokes, my doctor has urged me to slow down. So slow down is what I will try to do. It's just a very odd feeling being able to just sit here in the morning. But I think that I can get used to it!
