Is Freedom Really Free?

Bald eagle hunting over water
Is freedom really free?  Of course not.  And I’m not talking about freedom from tyranny (although much has been written about that subject).

I’m talking about free time.

I’m taking the day off work today.  In fact, I won’t be working for the next three days.  In other words, it’s a free weekend.

So, do I have lots of free time? 

Not exactly.  Here’s a short list of some of the things I plan to do (not necessarily in order).

Bible school. Swim lessons. Pool. Make food for party. Host party. Clean up from party. Bull horns at 7:00 a.m. Host breakfast. Dress kids in red, white, and blue.  Walk to parade. Watch parade. More swimming. Hang out with kids. Cook. Clean. Shop. Gather with friends. Church. Cookout. Exercise. Drive kids around. Read. Write. Stake out seats for fireworks. Walk to fireworks. Watch fireworks. Sleep.

Here’s to freedom!  It doesn’t sound like I’ll have a lot of free time.  But I wouldn’t trade my weekend for anything. 

Have a great weekend!  How will you enjoy your freedom?

Sounds perfect to me! "Free" time to me is doing things I enjoy with the people I love...and that about sums up my weekend. Happy 4th!

I like to eat cherries or chocolate, sitting on the back porch, looking at my crazy flowers.

I'm living the same life. Summer sounds good in theory but provides just as much activity if not more than the school year. *sigh* It's a fun life though.

Ahhh, free time. Soaking in every moment with my family. There's never enough. Glad I found you through HCB. Congrats on the book. That's amazing!
