We dropped all four kids off at Grandma's for 24 hrs. I have to laugh because I'm not really sure what to do with myself. Being a homeschooling mom and having my husband work shifts, I am used to being surrounded by people ALL the time. Most importantly people that make messes and need attention.
So what to do with ourselves? O.K besides the Obvious ;)
I have to laugh because the FIRST thing I REALLY wanted to do was clean the house. I wanted to clean it and have it stay clean and tidy the entire 24hrs! I don't think I've been that excited about housework in a long time! I mean seriously....the bathrooms are sparkling, the floor is vacuumed and EVERYTHING IS IN ITS PLACE! As I type this I even have CANDLES BURNING...like on the end tables...like beside the couch!!
I can hardly contain myself I'm so giddy. I know it is weird but when you spend the majority of your life with little people walking behind you undoing all your effort this is a treat!!
So once the house was cleaned Adam and I decided to head in to town for a coffee date and some errands. Who knew that when you have no children in tow and no reason to head back home you could spend 5 hrs wandering the city and taking your time doing nothing?
Oh that's right we did...10 years ago when we were dating.
Obviously we are home now and have a few hours before our dinner guests arrive. Now what? The house looks the same as when we left and I don't NEED to DO ANYTHING. Well isn't this nice! I don't have a spare moment...I have a spare few hours ;) yipee!!!!!!!
What is weird is that someday IF all four kids were in school and my husband was off during the week this would be NORMAL! Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm......
