Sunday Contentments – Being lazy…

Maybe it’s a bad thing, but I’ve become a bit lazy lately, and I don’t exactly care. For the last year or so, I’d been getting up at 4:45 to work on the Heat Flash Erotica podcast and then plunging into the rest of the day. I finally reached the point where I had to stop this. First off, it felt like I was living in a separate time zone from the rest of the family. Second, I had reached a point where I was so tired, I wasn’t getting up a lot of morning, and when I was, I was pretty much a walking corpse.

So I changed my schedule to let me sleep until 6AM, and some mornings I sleep later than that. And I don’t think it’s a bad thing. My schedule is still killing me (I need to cut back on work, and come this fall, I will definitely be pushing a few things off my plate for good). However, I feel more human when I wake up in the morning.

And then there are mornings like Friday…

One of the best things about sleeping in until 6 or later is that I get to snuggle with the Hubster. I love snuggling with that man. He’s warm and cuddly and he smells just right when I curl up next to him. Last Thursday morning I really didn’t want to get out of bed. But we had to get the kids off to school and Hubster had a meeting and I had work… So as we were climbing out of bed I suggested to my darling mate that the next morning we simply go back to bed after the kids went to school.

And he said yes.

Long story short, there was much cuddling and snuggling Friday morning, interspersed with napping and other activities. Yes, I’m an erotica writer. No, I’m not giving you the details. I will simply say that it was one of the best mornings I’ve had in a long time, and I highly recommend that if you ever get the chance, get the kids out of the house one morning (to school, to the sitter, to Grandma’s, etc.) and then go back to bed. You will not regret it.

So there’s my contentment for this week – a loving husband and a serious bout of laziness that has set me to rights after a very long couple of weeks. Hope you’re just as content wherever you are.
