I take full responsibility. I spent the better part of my PTO in a complete empty-nest meltdown. For two days I whined and bawled about how aimless I’ve been and how quiet and empty my house feels in the afternoon.
I practically double-dog-dared the universe to make a complete fool of me.
Me- “Wah, wah, wah…I hate how quiet and empty the house feels in the afternoon. I feel so aimless with out my kid at home. Wah, wah, wah.”
Universe- “Oh…so you don’t like being home alone in the afternoon? Need a project? How about an enormous project at work?! You can work 14 hours a day for the next two weeks (including Sunday). That way you won’t be home in the afternoons to feel alone.”
Not exactly what I was thinking.
Note to self…next time I whine to the universe, be more specific about what I want.
Anyway, needless to say me not being home means alot of stuff just doesn’t get done. Don’t get me wrong, my wonderful husband has picked up the slack a lot. But it’s just not the same as me being home. For example, for the past 10 days I have not:
- done laundry
- plucked my eyebrows
- watered my plants
- been grocery shopping
- played ball with Daisy
- watched TV
- written anything on my blog
I had so many great ideas and things to share on my blog too. Like how I discovered that I do my best problem solving while either running, vacuuming, or blow drying my hair. Or a riveting blog post about how I am completely addicted to Pinterest.
Anyway, I think (***HOPE***) the worst part is over. At least for a few days. Because I really need clean underwear and my unibrow is starting to fill in.
Plus, I’ve missed my friends. So tell me…what have you been up to?
