The saying is that we put on one or the other "hat" when we change personas, right? Since I look lousy in hats, I'd prefer to change wigs and sunglasses.
The Me known as "Mom" is no longer in daily face-to-face contact with the single person in the world who calls her that. The Progeny is back on campus for the year, and bless his heart, I can only make his life miserable by phone or email.
Does this mean the "extra" time will be used efficiently by the other versions of Me? I really hope so. Loads of projects are scattered about in varying stages of incompletion.
Well. At least there's no sleeping late on the first weekday, thanks to someone nearby cutting a tree down before 7:00 A.M. Nothing like waking up to the sound of a chain saw to signal it's going to be one of those days. Please pass the dark glasses. The really dark glasses.
