Saturday, 10 a.m. Ray just left with all four kids in tow, to do errands, including a trip to the mall. They could be gone for almost four hours! Including lunch! I can’t remember the last time I had an empty house to myself for more than 30 minutes. Any longer than that, usually at least one child stays at home with me. But not today!
I stayed behind to tackle a huge project — our bedroom closet, overflowing with kids’ artwork and other keepsakes. Serious organization needed.
But a small part of me shudders with glee. Maybe I’ll just read a book for three hours, work out, take a shower. I don’t want to squander the first bit of free time I’ve had in months and months. What to do first??
Okay, what I will do is the chore. It’s not something easily done with the kids home to “help.” If you were me, though, what would you do?
