It’s funny, a year or two ago, given an evening to myself, I would have hurried to cram as many plans into it as humanly possible in an effort to “not waste the time.” Tonight I have been gifted an overnight evening sans child and husband and I cannot think of anything I would rather do than sit in a clean and quiet house – alone!  

And maybe run some errands that will be much easier to not wrangle a child along with. And maybe write thank you notes, and catch up on Bible study, and design our Christmas card, and do laundry, and watch a good movie, and read my book I’m behind on, and plan Christmas gifts. Or maybe I’ll sit on the couch and do nothing!

Tomorrow morning I am planning to attend our Christmas Luncheon at church – it’s like a whole weekend to myself!
