Time out: n. a pause from doing something (as work); respite, break, recess, pause - temporary inactivity.
Forget about the kids. I need a naughty spot. A place for time out.
It seems for an extravert, I sure do love my own company. In fact, as I get older I seem to want it more and more.
Time alone to think... (sigh).
When the boys both go down for their afternoon sleep, days seem to run more smoothly as a result of that hour or two of complete peace and quiet. Then I can gather my thoughts, work quietly and refocus on what needs to be done for the rest of the day, or even the week. I might even have the opportunity to plan further ahead than that.
Or, it could be like today where I was lucky to have half an hour 'child-free' before I discovered that my 3 year old had snuck out of his bedroom to draw on my bedroom doona cover and pillows.
As you can imagine, the day went down hill from there.
Quality Kym Time... (sigh). It's bliss.
