the saying is that it is all in the attitude. And I have decided that instead of dreading the next two weeks while Ian is not here, I will embrace the freedom of it. I do not have a great deal of freedom as I am so imbedded in my job. I have daily deadlines to meet and I have to work consistently to hit them.
But, I do not work all the time, and I have gained a few hours of freedom per day by Ian being gone. So, I am going to use the planner to plan my time. I have also decided to not let those well meaning people intrude on my freedom. My son and daughterinlaw came up for the weekend (I wanted to enjoy having them all to myself) so I have not been alone. And I find myself looking forward to "alone." Looking forward to the freedom to eat exactly what I want to eat. The freedom to contemplate. The freedom to exercise at will - including the freedom to walk down the middle of the street which drives Ian crazy. Tomorrow, I am taking Spanky for a walk and I am walking down the middle of the street.
Its what I want to do!
