For many years, the Warden had callings in church that kept him gone to meetings on Thursday nights. The kids'd go to bed, and I'd be up watching E.R. and all the other great shows that Thursdays had to offer. It was a fun time, and I kind of miss it, to be honest.
Tonight, the three oldest kids are helping at a soup kitchen with the youth from church, #4 is at scouts, and the three youngest are bathed and in bed. I am sitting here alone with nothing but time on my hands. It's lovely!!!
Today, I did coupons and got the grocery shopping organized. I got most of it done--have to go back to Safeway tomorrow to finish, but that's okay cuz there's an eclair at the end of that rainbow. Anyway, it took most of my time, and I only got one load of laundry done. I've been such a slacker!
So, the other thing I used to do on Thursday evenings was, as the commercials came on during episodes, I would run and straighten a room as quickly as I could and get back to the show as soon as the ad was over. I think I'm going to have to set myself a timer or something tonight. I got the upstairs cleaned, so now to work on the kitchen, front room, and family room.
I'm not the kind that can just bask in the alone-ness. I'm just a bit too much of a spazz. I can't seem to sit still and just drink it all in. Too many things that need to be done run through my brain.
What do you do when you have time like this?
