Day Off


What will you do in your day off? When you are able to take off your 'mother-hat' and your 'wife-hat' and simply become you.


I have two days off every Thursday and Friday, when Didi goes to ChildCare. I always look forward to these days, imagining what I can do to indulge myself. However, as the day comes, I simply don't know what to do.


Last week, I planned to have a luxurious bath with my Body Shop champagne-scent bubble bath, but then I realized that my bathtub was a bit leak. I wanted to go shopping, but I thought that shopping was included in a housewife's task (wasn't it?), so better not to do it in my day off. 


So, I enjoyed myself reading for hours (at that time: Burnt Toast - Teri Hatcher's Autobiography), then I put some more sentences to my forever-unfinished novel. After that I returned some books to the library and called my sister on the way home. Unfortunately, she's busy with her new band (or maybe a new boyfriend). Then I thought maybe I could save my 50 cent phone coin by ringing someone else, but I had no friends that worthed an International call. Uhm, I mean, YM-ing is way cheaper, why bother?


Time flew, Didi and her father went home at 4.30 pm. It's silly, but I've just realized that I missed them so much.


A.K.
