Afternoons are me time. I have time after my second job at the community center to do really whatever I need or want to do. Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you about my new job. I joined a service organization for the summer. I am going to beautify my community and work with kiddos. Perfect summer. Don't worry though, I still have my job at the activity center handing out towels to sweaty old people. So back to my "all about me" afternoons. These afternoons can be the gateway to way to many snacks and tv shows about nothing. One day of this is totally ok. A week of this..not so much. Too much of the lazies can also lead to a downer kind of feeling.

So, I have been on a quest to re-envent my afternoons. So far I have found joy in cooking. I have impressed the pants off of myself by making banana bread and meatloaf. Two things I have never even attempted to make before. The best part..they were edible and my husband thought they were the bomb. Always nice to impress his pants off too. I have also spent time being a crafter. I have made a weath for our front door and painted some picture frames for our bedroom. Next thing you know, our entire apartment will be one big craft. Soon my afternoons will also be filled with summer school work. For now, I will enjoy the bliss of having absolutly nothing to do, but whatever I want to do.

Although "Me" afternoons are great, I do look forward to having my sweet husband walk through the door. His hugs always smell like work. His eagerness to eat my food always makes me happy.
