I’m self-employed and work from home, which is an amazing gift and blessing. AND (I tend to like AND conversations) I find a lot of reasons as to why I can’t/shouldn’t leave…yesterday was one of those days when I didn’t want to put in the effort to get out the door.
Now, I love good coffee and although some people drink their coffee naked, I drink it “doctored” with yummy creamer. When I checked my supply, I realized I was almost out. Now with no boss to answer to, I should be able to just run out when I want to? Yes? Yes! However, my responsible self kicked in and said “how silly is it to waste precious gasoline running out for coffee creamer?” That just isn’t responsible, right! So stay at home I did.
I thought about asking my sweet hubby to stop on the way home and I knew he was tired so I put on my best martyr face and figured now was the time to either drink my coffee naked. Better for me anyway?
This morning I told my hubby about the scenario and he said “I would have been happy to stop sweetie”…
Fast forward, he heads off to face his 1 hour long commute in Chicago traffic…and the later he leaves the more he gets to sit and stare at the backend of the same car for a long time. I toddled off to work wishing I had “just” gone out yesterday.
15 minutes later I hear a knock at the door and there is my honey…a bottle of creamer in hand and a beatific smile on his face. WOW!!!!!!!!!
Now, how kind is that!
