My office was closed for construction this week, which meant that I got the whole week off work. It was fantastic. And now I want to quit my job and stay home all the time. (Since I enjoy having money, I guess I will keep working.)
I had so much time to do all the things I always want to do but never have time to do. I went to the temple every day and finally started making a dent in the family names I’ve been “working on” (a.k.a. “procrastinating”) for the last three years. It was so great to spend so much time there and to have time to ponder and study. I gained a lot more insight into the symbolism of the temple than I have before. It was just really, really great. I need to make time to go more often.
I also had time to deep clean my apartment, which was so much less daunting a task when spread throughout the week. I’ve had really great workouts every day, the kind I always wish I did but never do because I don’t want to get up at 5:15 am to do them. I made new recipes and cooked dinner every night. I finally got around to sorting through and backing up the 11,000 unarchived photos on my computer (I know. I know). I went shopping one day in SoHo and got some board shorts for our trip to Lake Powell.
I’m reading. I’m taking naps. I’ve talked to my mom on the phone. I’ve just really, really enjoyed making my own schedule and doing whatever I want every day. And now I’m really, really looking forward to having a baby and staying home someday. I know I won’t have all the time in the world to do whatever I want after I have children, but I just really like the idea of not being stuck in an office for 10 hours every day. That is a lot of time. I would rather be doing sooooo many other things with that time.
Sigh…….. Someday. Someday.
Klane has been busy shooting a commercial this week. They’re filming in New Jersey, so he didn’t have to travel for it, but he’s been leaving super early and getting home close to midnight. It’s good though, even though he’s exhausted he’s excited to have his work being produced for TV! This is his second commercial he’s done, so it’s pretty cool!
Here’s to a weekend that lasts forever. I never want to go back to work!
