Sitting at my favorite coffee shop for 1 1/2 hours, drinking a latte, and working on record keeping for my business — I can’t think of anything I’d rather be doing this morning. Mark, age 4, is at preschool this morning, and thank heavens for that. He has missed so many scheduled preschool days over the last month or two, due to illness, weather, and other obligations, and I’ve really missed having this time to myself.
Sitting at home watching Netflix or reading a book, while Mark is at preschool — these things can be relaxing and rejuvenating, but lots of times, I just want to work. Be productive in a realm that is all my own.
