As I wrote earlier this week, my car died on the side of the road. Not just died…engine seized.
While I take the time to shop for a new car that leaves my wife and I sharing a car. Since I work early in the morning and she works late into the night, it means that I will be spending my evenings at home and without transportation.
Now, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. If you have been reading you know me as someone who is constantly on the go. Seeking out and trying new things. I think I’m due to take a real break. And there is no better time to take it as the winter dumps snow on the Northeast.
While I don’t intend to be without a car for long, nor do I intend to become a shut in…I did invest in all those winter accessories after all. But I do think its time to try to be “Happier at Home”.
I put that in quotation marks because on my reading list is a book called “Happier at Home” and it is written by our Happiness project inspiration, Gretchen Rubin.
The book is about how a few years after the original Happiness Project she wanted to focus on bringing more happiness solely into her own home. So she created a mini-happiness project spanning one school year , Sept through June.
Maybe its time for me to binge watch Netflix, cook at home, read to the boys, and work on the dreaded. “honey do” list at least for a little while.
