Who needs to escape, anyway?
Truthfully, I’ve been thinking about what to write on this first entry to this new blog place. I don’t even know if I’m writing in the right spot! But, as I thought and thought about how to humorously, or some other way, entertainingly talk about the topic at hand, without actually saying the topic, well, it got to be too complicated, I thought, and not to mention, not me. This is my first post, and I would like to gain readers, so I thought, I’ll just be myself right now, and later, I can write different styles or whatever. I have no idea how this thing is going to go, which to me, makes it just what I’m supposed to be writing about, an escape. I have always considered writing a type of escape for me. When I write, it is a way to get everything that’s a big jumble in my head out on paper and make it make sense, at least some what. I consider something that I don’t know where it is going, what to expect, those are escapes. I love to read, get really involved with the characters, try to predict what they will do next. I know it is a well written book when I am unable to predict the moves, but it still makes sense with the character’s personality, and the plot. Sometimes I like to do something I call “veg” and that’s different from escape. That’s just letting my brain rest, or work on it’s own, I guess. I like to do some sort of wind down before going to sleep.
I’ve been thinking about this topic since it was mentioned to me, and I thought, oh, if only I really could! Escape, my life, that is. Then I started to really think about my life, my daily routine, and then I realized that I really do love my life. I love the fact that I can get up at any time, and I never have to be anywhere at any particular time, but if I feel like it, I can just hop in the car and go somewhere, the store or whatever. Granted, I have to take my three children with me, but they love shopping just as much as I do, and they even love window shopping just as much as I do. In fact, sometimes I think the two older girls like it even more. They love to try on clothes and shoes they know we aren’t going to buy.
So, my days start at a different time every morning. Who ever wakes up first, wakes up Mommy, unless it’s me that wakes up first, which does happen on occasion, in which case, I don’t wake any one up! I enjoy that quiet morning time. When school gets back into session later this month, I will get into a better early morning routine, maybe even work out at that time!
In the end, I think that this was an excellent topic for me to reflect upon because I realized that I really don’t have a need to escape because I am already living a laid back, do what I want when I want, life!
That is, when I’m not cleaning the house, the dishes, washing clothes, feeding the children, keeping them busy, and all the other things a mom does!
