I have to decide how I will spend my "solo" evening. After my shower. I can read. Watch a disc of Fringe season one. I can work on the three place mats I started on Thursday evening while watching Project Runway. Yes. I did fabric work. And I cleared a place on the worktable for actual work. Amazing. I can eat zucchini brownies with a cup of coffee. Do a load of dark work laundry and even get the dog towels washed. Multi-tasking.
When G had a corporate job, he traveled all the time and was frequently away from home. I grew to enjoy the freedom I had on those days and evenings to do what I wanted, eat what I wanted, wear pajamas all day, stay up all night reading and then sleep all day (this was before we had a dog). So, it is sweet indeed, to have this one evening a month to just be ME. No explanations. The Single Life.
