I have a strange feeling that many of you will appreciate this post. Hubby and I recently had a conversation that went something like this:
Hubby: You know, I’ve been thinking lately…
Theta Mom: About?
Hubby: Well, you know…I work really hard, I’m up so early every morning, I put in really long days…and long weeks at work…
Theta Mom: Uh, yeah…
Hubby: Well, I need some ‘me’ time.
Theta Mom: Did you say me time?
Hubby: Yeah, like, you know…transition time.
Theta Mom: Transition time???
Hubby: Yeah, like time just for me away from the kids…I need to unwind and make the transition to coming home from work and stuff…So, I’ve decided that I’m gonna take my bike out more often.
[ABOUT TO BREAK THE SILENCE]
Theta Mom: Ok, let me get this straight. You need to take “joy rides” on your motorcycle more often so that you can have time to yourself between your job and home, and this is what you are calling your “transition time?”
So Theta Moms, when Hubby is out riding his motorcycle, feeling the wind on his face and the freedom of the open road, he’ll be enjoying peaceful trips alone on his bike. His transition time is a total escape…
