Imagine you had no obligations for 1 day, what would you do?

Imagine for one intire day you had absulely no obligations of any kind. No children to worry about, no job, no spouse, parents, etc. Nothing. You don't even have to worry about money. What would you do? Recently that happened to me, and it was just for one day and one day only. So I took a walk, to just let myself go where ever. I also brought my notebook, hoping to get a chance to write somewhere. I found myself at a laundry mat. Which is odd because I own a very nice washer and dryer set and I didn't have any laundry to do. Yet, I was still there. How did I get there? Well, honestly, I had to use the bathroom and it was the closest place. When I was done, I walked outside and decided to sit on a bench and write something. As I was trying to write, a man sat at another bench just outside the laundry mat. The man spoke to me, he asked me something about real estate. We talked about real estate for awhile but then I soon learned that he was from Jamacia. He lives here in Indianapolis now because his son had cancer and was taken to Railey Children Hosiptal. His son didn't live long. And he stayed here because he just couldn't make himself leave, even though his wife already went back. I also met a woman with 3 kids who's husband commited suscide. I met another woman who had won a million dallors on the Hoosier Millionare years ago, but is now broke and living in poverty. I met the workers there, I met some loving pets. In fact it was a very fulfilling day. So what would you do? What if you had a Week, what would you do?

One simple word would answer your question in regards to me. Sleep. Sleep Sleep Sleep. I have spent the last 27 years with marriage, raising my family, work, taking care of parents, finishing my own education, now there are grand kids daughter in laws, and all the rest of it. still. So I think I would just sleep in :)) But it sounds like you had a wonderful day :)) I am glad you enjoyed it.

I did, thank you. But like you all I really wanted to do that day was sleep. Just couldn't get back to sleep.

I might just sleep all day or something like that, catch up on some sleep. Probably go read a book somewhere real quiet, maybe go watch a movie somewhere.
