Hello! Lemme just tell you what’s been happening around here. The kids are at my mom’s for the week and it is Q-U-I-E-T. I’ve decided I’m over it. The first day, OK, it was great. I enjoyed the peace, got some stuff done, and went out for a late burger with my man. The second day, woke up feeling weird, but I had coffee with my girlfriend and got a lot of gardening done, didn’t have to feel guilty about doing it, and took a longer than usual shower. The third day…felt even weirder when I woke up, got some party errands finished, cleaned out the back seat of the car and missed the car seats. Now here we are on day four. I’m doing some guilt-free blogging, and plan to work more on getting ready for the party so I’ll be super-busy. But I’ve taken to listening to music while I work just so I don’t have to hear the ticking of the clock anymore. Don’t get me wrong. We are super-grateful for this time to work guilt-free and I’ve gotten a ton done, but I just feel so un-tethered. Does that make sense? If it wasn’t clear before, we are certainly positive that our lives would feel empty without those 2 little people in it. I know a lot of you would give your eye teeth to have a week sans kids, so I’ll shut up now. It’s just been a weird kind of nice work week.
