Small luxuries add up


I’m sitting here thinking about all the quiet I have been able to soak up this week, and am grateful for that luxury. It’s so wonderful to not have the tv running, and to be able to watch any movie I want when I do watch it without someone complaining that there aren’t enough explosions, or that there is too much kissing (because kissing gives you cooties, apparently. Thank the gods for small favors!).

This morning, I took another bath. This must be the third one this week. Three baths in one week and, since the kids are at school all day, there’s nobody around to holler through the door and ask me for something.

And I left the door open, because there was nobody there to see. Well, that is except for Harley, and what does he care?  He only likes me for my arms.  Besides, who’s he gonna tell?

Not only did I leave the door open, but I streaked across the hallway after I dried off.  It’s nice not having to care about stupid things like that, if only momentarily.

I’m having lunch with my dear friend and sister, Brea, today. Not only do I get to have lunch with her, but I get to not have to worry about when I arrive and leave. Since I have the day off, there’s no worry about an hour’s worth of lunch. And then I’m going shopping afterward, just me, myself and I.

Truth be told, I’m feeling naughty and spoiled today. Small luxuries sure do add up to a nice big whole!

    And when you streaked across the hallway…..I bet you did it quickly…while still covering up your goodies…..even though you were the only one home……am I right??? 🙂

  2. I know what you mean, I LOVE those small luxuries of no one else around for a while. I enjoy having the house empty and no one making noises or talking, no tv in the background. It gets boring if it’s for too long, but a couple hours a day of complete silence and freedom to walk nude in the house if you want is an amazing feeling. I’ve noticed it alone can relieve any stress you might have.

    Enjoy your luxuries while you can, they seem to happen rarely.
