Me Time

The fella’s taken the little one out. For a precious few hours, I’m free to pretend I don’t have responsibilities. I wish I’d appreciated those lazy Saturday mornings when it seemed I’d never run out of them.

What am I going to do with myself? Read in bed? Catch up on sleep?

I stretch. I fancy a novel and a cuppa.

I sit down, waiting for the kettle to boil. The cat comes out of hiding and jumps into my lap.

‘Hey, it’s me time.’

The cat yawns, curls up and goes to sleep. For cats, it’s always me time.

  1. Sometimes I would see women, who would say things like, “I just want another baby,” because their baby is not so little any more. But what they should say to themselves is, ” Oh, I just really want another teenager!” because those years can feel like a lifetime!.

    I also wanted to thank you for coming to my blog and reading a piece of it. It was very appreciated. I forgot to look and see which blog you went to because I have 2. about a man, a grandson’s father who is in prison just past 9 years now and I share his letters, and http://watchandwhirl, which is a mixture of other things that pass through my day. Hope to see you again.

    1. I agree – babies are lovely if you can hand them back when they turn into work. I mean it’s wonderful to watch them develop, but man do I not miss the nights when I got no more than an hour’s sleep at a time…

      I read a few of your posts on My Name is Jamie. I’ve bookmarked it, too.

      Thanks for stopping by!

      1. Sleep? What was sleep back when they were little? But I got even less sleep during the teen years! And thank you for bookmarking my site. This is how I lose sleep now. I took the day of from writing today. Just catching up on social media sites and email.

  2. Nicely done. I second milliethom’s comment about the cat. Cats are all about “me time” and it contrasts nicely with moms, who rarely do.
    My cat won’t give up trying to sit on my keyboard at the moment. 🙂

    1. Oh, that sounds familiar. Mine loves to rest his head on my laptop, preferably while I’m trying to write 🙂
      Thank you, Julie!
