My wife was at work on Friday (a no-daycare day) and away working on her family cottage rebuild on Saturday, and two back to back days as a solo parent had me itching for some freedom. Avery has also been incredibly glued to me lately – I can’t leave her side while she naps or sleeps at night or she wakes and freaks out. (We’re working on it….). So anyway, we decided to do an hour each of our own thing yesterday. My wife had a bath. I thought I’d go to my favourite coffee shop and blog a bit. But my favourite coffee shop was closed. And the next coffee shop I went to was closing in 20 minutes. So I stopped at the nearest convenience store, bought a chocolate bar, and then parked in a nearby park and ate my chocolate bar with just enough time to write this and head home again. It was sad. It was lonely. It was poorly planned. And it made me realize I haven’t quite kicked my sugar habit…..
Next weekend we’re going to have to up it to 2 hours so I can actually go somewhere and settle in and drink a coffee.
What would you do if you had an hour or two of YOU TIME?
