As much as I LOVE my job (again for the boss), there are plenty of other things that I would also love to be doing.
-I would love to be having a picnic by the lake. I live literally five minutes from a lovely lakeside park but do you think that I ever get there? Ha! I must get out there!
-I would love to go shopping, not because I need milk and tampons but just because I want to for totally frivolous things. Of course, I need to work for the money to do that…..
-I would love to have the day to spend with my kids. Of course, they’re teens now so even when I do have my vacation time, they probably won’t hang around with me. A mom can dream though.
-I would love to spend some quality time writing both for this blog and some fiction. I’m not spending enough time on either lately (sorry!)
-I would love to be sitting out on a terrasse somewhere drinking wine/sangria/beer/whatever with my lovely SIL. I’m not seeing enough of her these days.
-I would love to be sitting on the sidelines watching my kids play soccer. I enjoy the socializing with the other parents as much as I enjoy cheering my kids on.
-I would love to go to the movies for a couple of hours of air conditioned, well-entertained bliss. There is always something out there that I want to see but, somehow, I don’t ever seem to go. What’s up with that?
-I would love to take a nap. I never napped when I was younger but, once I had kids, I learned the value of a good nap. There’s nothing like “checking out” for an hour or so on a peaceful afternoon.
What would you rather be doing?
