In The Evening0
As soon as Ben goes down for the night, I start to shut down and go into a vegetative state in my living room. I have fallen into this routine of relaxing and lounging and doing nothing truly productive except organizing my PVR. I know many mums who use the evenings to get real things done. You know, like catching up on laundry (blah!) or working on projects or maybe even going out to the gym. I even know a few who take the evening to work on their masters.
The thing is, I really quite enjoy my lazy quiet evenings at home and they are pretty well counterbalanced by the busy days we have and the early morning starts too! At the same time, I just can’t help but feel like I am missing out on something by retreating to my couch or bathtub by 7:30 PM each evening.
I know some of you might be thinking, ‘What!? Another sleeping baby picture!’ but I can’t help myself. A sleeping child is so innocent and peaceful. Don’t you think? What do you do with your evenings?
