I Hardly Know What To Do With Myself!

We got up, hung out, went to dance class, had lunch, ran to Costco... And something strange has happened. My house is quiet. My time is unaccounted for. My agenda is empty. Jeff's dad has an appointment to get his car worked on. Jeff took the kids and went to pick up his dad and go over to his dad's house for the afternoon. I'll meet up with them later for dinner. This means I have at least 3 hours in my house- ALONE. I am so far behind on housework... that I relish this time to put away laundry, clean up toys, get rid of trash, put away groceries, and so on. So I'm signing off... so I can fully enjoy the state of my house... so I can improve the condition of my house... so I can be ALONE.

Ahhhh alone time. Lucky you. I'm with Jim 24/7. Ugh.

I started wondering "What the hell are you doing on your blog, with all that alone time??" Glad to know you're using it more wisely than spending it with us slackers.

A clean house makes way for a peaceful mind.

Larry and I spent the day moving my son's stuff out of his apartment and cleaning it. Do you have any idea what happens inside a refrigerator when the electricity has been turned off for two weeks but "somebody" forgot to empty it first? Let's just say a gas mask and full hazmat suit from the CDC wouldn't have prepared me for that fridge!

Oh the things we do for our kids.

Oh, I LOOOOOVE having the house to myself! Love it! Sometimes The Engineer takes the kids on a run when he gets home. Just that 25 minutes of alone time is wonderful. :)
