I'm celebrating tonight. Celebrating getting through half of this week. It's been hectic and stressful at work. I was ready for the weekend at 9am on Monday morning. Now, there are just 2 days left until my weekend.
It's funny.. when I think about it.. We always want the work week to fly by... and then come the weekend, we want time to slow down to almost a dead stop. We want to stop to relax, breathe, capture moments that we may not have been able to capture had we been at work. Working with kids, I get to capture unbelievable moments that their parents miss. I get to see first steps, first time going "potty", and first time on the monkey bars without adult help. I'm 23 and I have 8 children. All between the ages of 2 and 3 years old. I have about 100 other children as well, that I get to see from time to time during my day. How lucky I am.
Man... I love what I do.
Though I do love my weekends. The time I get to spend alone. Me time. I love being able to send my kids home, with their parents. I especially get "me" time on Saturdays. Scott has work all day. It's nice to be able to get things done, go for a walk, not put makeup on, write, breath, and stay in my PJs all afternoon. I love that.
One of these Saturdays, I want to get the courage to go to the train station, and board a train. A train heading to one place and one place only... New York City, of course.
I want to go there and walk through Central Park with my ear buds in. I want to go without a big bulky purse... without a map... without a camera... you know, the usual touristy stuff. I just want to go there, and be me... a part of the city... a part of it's people... and just pretend for five seconds that I live there. And that I'm this famous Radio City Rockette, whose season has just ended. And I'm just working on my fitness in Central Park. =)
But, I may do that one day.
I want to be more spontaneous... it's one of my New Years Resolutions. Can't get more spontaneous than that.
On another note... here is something that makes me smile. I love this poem. It just makes me smile when I listen to it. Especially when I'm alone on nights like tonight... (Scott's guys night out) and none of my friends are able to come over for Wine Wednesdays!
I love this video.. Check it out.. I guarantee you'll smile. How To Be Alone =)
Keep Smiling (it's good for you!),
P.S. I chose the song I'll be walking down the aisle to at my wedding. I'll share next time. =) =)
