On days when J works I have the afternoon to myself.
Which usually means I lay around the house making sure we get our $8 worth of Netflix.
Possibly wash a few dishes. Possibly not. And then get ready for bed.
Mind numbing even.
But this past Saturday I decided to be a little more adventurous.
I had a few errands that I wanted to run.
You know – trip to Target and the school supply store then snack run at Chipotle for chips & guac.
And the things usually done with J.
Because it’s fun when it’s the two of us.
While driving alone across town with the windows rolled down and Pandora playing I realized how much I enjoyed being alone.
And how refreshed and productive I was afterwards.
Turning off the TV also might have helped..
I am well aware of my introvert tendencies but since June 22 I rarely run errands alone.
I rarely even drive unless it’s to work and back.
Now, I love my husband.
The guy that’s truly my best friend.
And I love doing the everyday things like Walmart runs, walks in the park, and getting coffee with that boy.
But I do think I’m going to start spending some time doing those things alone every now and then.
And maybe a good book.
