Think back to those peaceful days, back when you were single. For some of you, it wasn't that long ago. For me...well, it's been about 10 years since I didn't have a hanger-on of some sort. Did you do anything special with your spare time? Shopping? Late night movie marathons? Early mornings at the coffee shop?
For me, it was people watching. I used to LOVE to go to the library or local bookstore and pretend to browse, but really I just wanted to scope out the people. I loved to check out their clothes and hair and wonder where they'd been and where they were headed next. Or, I'd sit on a bench in the shade at our local college and just relax. I had a cute little rental house that was only one block from the campus, so it was a perfect afternoon activity to just hang out over there and watch the students scurry by.
These days, those memories are nothing but that...memories. It was before kids, before I had a husband, and a job, and a mortgage, and a....ugh, let's just stop there. So, take a second and share with us what your guilty pleasure was (or, if you're lucky, still is).
