No, I’m not talking about the kind being celebrated tomorrow. I’m talking about the kind that comes from having no commitments for a day. I, like a lot of people, have the day off of work tomorrow. Unlike a lot of people I’ve spoken to I have no plans for the day.
My husband is currently working nights, so he’ll be sleeping during the day, which means we’ve made no plans. I’m pretty sure I could have a rock concert in the living room and he would sleep through it, so I’m not really limited on what I can do at home. Not that I want a rock concert. I’m actually not a fan of loud noise; it’s just nice for me (and for him since I’m a klutz) that I don’t have to tiptoe around quietly while he’s sleeping.
I have rescheduled the one commitment I had for tomorrow and have blatantly refused to make any others. I need the freedom of an unstructured day. I need to clean the house. I need to iron. I need to work on some blog posts that have been swirling around in my head. I need to regain control of myself.
I need 24 hours in which I don’t have to meet anyone’s demands, solve anyone’s problems, or deal with anything outside the walls of our little house. I have felt myself becoming increasingly snappish and edgy for the past week. I’m not entirely sure what is causing it, but I am sure I don’t like who I am at the moment.
I think I will be a much better person after my day of freedom. I plan to use the time to come up with a plan for making myself less edgy and snappish. I suspect this will involve coming up with a plan to get some things organized and set some time management priorities, and of course beginning to implement said plan.
So what about you? How do you plan to spend your day of freedom?
