Lee is off on one of his two annual elk hunting trips for 10 days. I have just started working a week on, a week off and this is my week off. At first I thought I'd go somewhere, visit someone but Lee reminded me I probably shouldn't spend more money so I thought I'd try a new concept. Staying home. So I've cleaned my house and organized the front area better so it doesn't look so random (we are renting and that room is kind of for storage till we start building in a couple of months). I've actually read and studied my scriptures every day, gone to Healthsport and worked out every day and walked every day besides (I love to walk in this one area where I hear this beautiful creek-the things one notices when they have time!) I've gotten my annual pap exam done and am getting a mammo tomorrow. I've watched movies and started the tv series Lost via CDs from the video store. I've gone through recipes and decided to try a few new ones in the next few days and I've been to a tile store, Restoration Hardware and browsed through Pottery Barn and Crate and Barrel on line to get ideas for decorating the new house we haven't built yet. I even had time to take Kelly to lunch at Hurricane Kate's in Old Town yesterday. Add in a nap most days and I'm managing to stay busy and getting comfortable being alone. I'm even sleeping good at night now. (Considering that I was afraid to stay by myself till last year, that's saying a lot!) I've had time to smell the roses, watch what I want, go to bed when I want and eat what a want. Pretty nice. Would I trade it to have all five of my children young again and chasing after them??? You bet!!!!
