Happiness

A Bit of R&R

I had the house to myself during my day off yesterday. I woke up early, knocked out my daily tasks, and then curled up with my current book.

It was so pleasant to simply exist. I didn’t have to go anywhere. I didn’t have to do anything. I could simply be…

…Until the messages and the phone calls started, that is.

I did what any woman who needs some time to herself should do. I muted the notifications.

The world carried on just fine without me. No major disasters happened because Annie decided to tune out for a day. This girl got to enjoy some serious “me” time uncomplicated by the drama of others.

It felt good.

    I do that most days. My friends know if they want to contact me they should send an email because I keep my phone on vibrate and don’t always notice when it goes off. Of course, I only check my mail a few times a day so if it’s something urgent they should just keep calling until I realize my phone is vibrating. Even then I check caller ID since I don’t answer unknown numbers. My life has become so much more peaceful since I realized I can do these things.
