What to Do?

The house is empty. The children are gone. (to Grandma's, of course...) The husband is at work. The teenagers are at his parent's house.

I am ALL alone, (except for four very annoying cats that keep begging me for attention).

I suppose cleaning the house would be the proper thing to do. It needs to be cleaned. I just don't "feel" like cleaning. It's boring.

It really is hard sometimes to decide what to do with so much free time. As a mom, I get so accustomed to the noise and the chaos. When the chaos is gone I feel lost. It's too quiet. There's definitely something (two somethings, actually) missing from my world today.

Well, the practical side does win out a little bit. I've made some progress on the Big Mess, though admittedly not much. I'll soon be skipping over to Wal-Mart for flea treatments for the cats because Angel's cat came home with fleas and now they all have fleas (JOY!).

Beyond that, I'm being lazy today. I slept until nearly 10:00 AM this morning. I would've slept longer if those darned cats had left me alone. Oh well, I needed to get up and make something useful of my day.

How do you spend your free time when you manage to get any? Make sure you have a bit of fun to recharge your batteries.
