Talk about the universe giving me what I wanted. For the past 6 ½ years I would have done just about anything to have some time at home alone. I don’t even mean time to get out of the house without any kids, I mean at home. Just to be in the house alone. If I was without the kids I was either at work or running errands, I was able to get away a bit, but never be at home alone. Never have peace and quiet at my own house. I wanted it so badly.

When I quit my job in Jan of 2008 I still never got that coveted time I was craving. I always had at least 2 kids hanging around the house. Then in August of 2008 it happened. Yes, believe it or not, my oldest 2 girls were in school and my youngest decided to be a good napper and sleep in the afternoon while they are gone. Ok, so I’m not “alone” but it feels like it. It’s quiet, and I’m able to get house cleaning, e-mails, laundry and whatever done without someone undoing what I do or without refereeing at the same time. Every now and then I even sit down and watch one of my TV shows. Although I have to admit I do that less than I thought I would. It’s wonderful!

So, here’s the funny part, after a few months of being “stuck” at home every afternoon that’s how I viewed it. Like I’m stuck here ‘cause my little one is sleeping. What a riot, will I ever be happy with what I have? Which is what got me thinking about the fact that this is what I prayed for for a long time.

The lesson for me is to appreciate what I have and to take the time to figure out what I’m grateful for now. Next thing I know I’ll be back at work, I hope, and wanting this quiet time again so I’m trying to appreciate it while I have it.

Why do we forget what it was we wanted once we get it?
