So let me tell you something beautiful. Alone time. As a self-proclaimed introvert, I need my alone time to recharge. So now Mr. Lumberjack is away for 6 weeks, I am soaking in my alone time, even though I am not technically alone…if you count the dog.
Loki, my crazy dog. I love him so much and I am pretty much a single parent for a month and a half. It is great to get all your ducks in a row and to make sure your son (yes, I call him my son) is well taken care of.
Loki and I have been pretty much on a routine.
- Wake up and 5 min cuddle.
- Feed the guy and change while he eats.
- Walk him in the morning.
- Leave for work.
- Come home and feed the guy again.
- Go on another long walk.
- He plays with his toys while I watch TV.
- I pick him (all 60 lbs) up and throw him on the bed
I don’t have too many people I talk to when I am home alone, but I like the quiet. I like doing things on my own and running on my schedule.
So why is this such a big deal? I have a fear when it comes to kids, because they are stuck with you for life. So I worry about being overworked, not knowing when to take a break and depending on my partner.
Times like these just validates I can do it! I go to sleep every day feeling like a boss that has a grip on her life. So don’t think you’re a loser if you’re alone sometimes. You can do anything, Miss Independent. You’re a queen.
