I spend a lot of my time waiting.

I wait for Brian to get home from work (or class, or being out of town).

I wait for bed time.

I wait for nap time.

I wait for the laundry to be done.  For the dishwasher to finish running.

I wait for bread to bake and dinner to cook.

I’m tired of waiting.

I want to do.

I’m tired of being tied to someone else’s schedule all the time.  Be it Lorelei’s or Brian’s.

I want to just be me sometimes.  I want to sleep as late as I want.  I want to go to the movies or out for a drink and not have to worry about getting home at a certain time.

I will still wait though.

I am lucky to have a perfect daughter.  I like being with her, even if it means I don’t leave the house most days.

I am lucky to have a husband who works so hard (and so much) so that I get to stay home.

I am lucky that I got to make this choice.

So, I wait.
