So I'm trying to think of ways to get that time for just me (as selfish as that sounds) on a regular basis. Suggestions are welcome.
One idea that I've had has been to take a day off and go driving. I was off to help laurel move her couch today and I had the tunes crankin' and the window down and I just felt happy. I wanted to just keep on driving, no where to go, no schedule to keep; just drive.
Another thought has been to take a one-day-a-week "job" as a writer. Go off to a cafe or library with the laptop and just write.
