Oh, so I’m just trying to keep up with my life (picture me running along, trying to catch a speeding car) and realized I never answered all the questions. So, here’s an answer for today.
Laura asked: What would you do with a day all to yourself? No kids, no husband, no responsibilities, no work…?
At home? If I were at home, I would sleep in and then feel no choice but to putter around, cleaning and sorting and organizing. I know that sounds like work, but I would find that so satisfying. There are so many things I’d love to do around here, but I need silence, solitude and no interruptions. If I have 24 whole hours, I would also read, write and watch late-night t.v. in bed. (I am so boring.)
Out and about? This is what I usually do on my “day off”: I go thrift shopping, I browse the clearance racks at Marshall’s and Famous Footwear, I see a movie (using gift certificates I have so it costs me nothing). I realized some time back that shopping is a sort of meditation for me . . . it really does clear my mind to focus on racks of clothing, looking for the colored tags that are fifty percent off, hunting for a treasures.
Yes, it’s confirmed. I am boring.
