I am unexpectedly home alone this long weekend. And I am a bit out of practice with what to do with all this… time. It’s an opportunity to catch up on so many things. It’s an opportunity to just be me (who?) yes me. I’m not sure I even remember how to do nothing. So I probably won’t do nothing, because who am I kidding, I can’t do nothing.
I’ll check a few things off, meet some friends, go outside, find some nature, go for a run, read something just for fun and not for work or parenting, clean out my closet, research a bit, catch up on some writing, talk to friends back home for so long that my ear turns red from the heat of the phone, drink some too-expensive coffee some place fancy and probably even go to the movies – because it has been way too long since I’ve been to the cinema. The list is long. I couldn’t even fit “relax” at the bottom before I ran out of page. Although with the list done, I can officially relax because I haven’t forgotten anything – so maybe I don’t need to add it to the list anyways (although I would have liked to be able to cross another thing off). I have list issues, I know. I’d deal with it but then I’d have to add that to the list.
