What to Do?
Fifty Word Challenge #83: Time
I lost Dad in November of 2021. Now that I’m not his caregiver anymore, what am I supposed to do with my time?
Grow my own. Write about it. Hone my skills in the pool hall. Write about that. Start lunching at wine bars.
Back to work? Nah.
Although I really did lose my dad in November, the above thoughts are purely fictional…or are they? Muahhaha, I guess you’ll never know.
Time is one of those things I’m having to fill up with all manner of trivial duties with a dash of whatever I want to do thrown in. I love to craft, and I need to exercise, but due to the grieving process, I’m having a hard time adhering to any kind of schedule.
I do the housework, take care of the brats (dogs); I’m even making their food now. I make time to write and journal. I do exercise, just not at a certain time every day. I go shopping, even if it’s window shopping just to get out of this house. I want to volunteer, but I don’t want to lose my freedom in case my husband wants us to go on a trip. I felt good about helping people when I did volunteer work before, but inevitably, just a few of us seem to do all the work.
Having a real job is even more restricting. So, for now, I guess I’ll just keep floundering around until God points me in the direction He thinks I should go.
