Can I play hooky?

Day four of the first week back at work after vacation.
Can I go back to bed and continue sleeping until 8 am?

I like getting up late, reading a paper, playing with the cat, and then making a decision about what to do. Vacation is a lot more fun. But no, it’s get up, get dressed, dally as long as possible, and then drive to work. Am not even thinking about getting up early enough to ride the bike. But it’s raining this morning, so I’ve got that for an excuse. Guess it is time one more cup of coffee, 6-7 minutes more dallying, and then leave. I’ll be late for work. That’s ok, they don’t mind a few minutes lateness as long as I turn stuff in on time, don’t miss meetings, and work enough hours.

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
