Can you see me there? Yep, just me, myself, and I.
That’s all there is this week. Well, the hubby’s here, but he’s at work all day.., and soon he leaves me too, on Thursday, but just for a few days.
This never happens. Everyone is gone this week. All the kids- off on summer adventures, however I do expect to see the girls sometime this week – they’re still around, just not home. Even my mom and sister are out of town. All alone.
The house is quiet. It’s 11:00 and the house is still clean. I answer only to myself. I can knit and watch TV all day, or leave to go do “whatever” without having to forewarn anyone and reassure them that their next meal will show up on time. I can live on cookies and Diet Coke if I want, and no one will ask, “Hey, what happened to all the ….. whatever…” I don’t have to pick after people, or nag them to pick up after themselves. Maybe I’ll just up and to go the movies because I want to.
Some day’s, it’s the stuff I dream of…. we’ll see. We’ll just see if it’s all I’ve cracked it up to be. (I have to say, though… the hubby did mention the fact that we’ll have the evenings and house to ourselves, by ourselves, as he left for work with a slight gleam in his eye – so there is that :o)
I have a feeling, though, that during the day I’ll be totally bored with myself very shortly ;o) I know I’ll begin to miss them all terribly. We’ll just see how long I can keep myself entertained.
Day One. So far, so good.
