It’s a rainy Sunday here in the great Midwest, and I’m not really sure what to do with myself.
I’m a single Mom, but my boys are away at Summer Camp. The guy I’ve been seeing on and off is on a fishing weekend with his buddies. I’ve got a million things to do and a very busy work week ahead of me.
I’m not used to having the house all to myself, and the silence is wonderful. I’m wondering if it’s okay to ignore the To Do list, celebrate the silence, and simply have a lazy Sunday.
