I am so excited, tonight I will be all ALONE. Brad is taking the kids camping for one night and the dog and I get to stay home. I feel like a little kid who just was told they could eat all the chocolate cake they wanted. For those of you who don’t understand my glee, imagine constant interruption during everything you do, lots of noise always, breaking up fights between siblings several times a day, cooking for children who hate everything you make, and cleaning so that it can be messed up again 10 minutes later. Nah, it’s not as bad as it sounds, and I wouldn’t trade it, but it sure is nice to have 14-16 hours of peace and quiet and time to do whatever I want, and some uninterrupted sleep.
I plan to:
run a few errands
pick up a salad from Panera for dinner
rent a girly movie that Brad would never want to watch
read during a long hot bath
paint my toe nails while I watch my movie
get plenty of sleep
and go rollerblading with my dog in the morning
In addition, a (more thoughtful and unrelated) post to come on being alone. If I don’t commit to it now I won’t ever write it. So there, now I have to… maybe… ok, we’ll see.
