Mellow Me

May 12th, 2006 at 10:57 pm

Iím going to bed soon, as Iím supposed to have regular sleep patterns to help prevent migraines. Tomorrow Iíll get up early, same reason, and go Garage saling. Again, Christmas shopping. And Iíll be doing a ton of recycling-a small portion of it stuff Iíll get money for.

Boring is good. I sometimes feel like itís odd to like a Friday night of hanging laundry, washing some dishes, taking a nice long hot bath, doing some writing, and reading some blogs. But my life feels very restful, not empty. I do not miss the drama of my youth. I donít need the constant ups and downs and activity. Iím going to nuke a brown paper bag of popcorn, crawl in bed with my book, and sleep the sleep of a contented woman. If I could of watched myself at 35 when I was 15, I would probably be horrified, but the reality is that if I knew at 15 how much more at peace Iíd become, Iíd be very jealous.

    It takes less & less to be content I believe. I am thrilled to pieces if I get 15 minutes & a good book...........with no kids around~

    I too choose the quiet nights over the active ones...I LOVE having evenings to just be.....I often think how my bedtime (usually 9-10) is the time I was just getting out the door in my 20s...egads.
