To Grandmother's House We Go!

Short post. Busy couple of days. But so eager for them!

Today, Jeff is off on a gaming weekend with a couple of his buddies. I had a scheduling conflict. 15K event on Saturday, no husband to stay with the kids, hate to try to find someone willing to watch my kids at 6:30 in the morning on a Saturday. It's spring break here so Teagan doesn't have school. The kids are having fun at their school- but it's more like Spring Break Camp. This means there is no school, lessons, etc to miss.

I'm taking my kids to Grandma's house. I will have true time alone. I can seriously barely contain my excitement. It isn't like I'll have a lot of free time. I have to rush back from Ohio for music team practice. I have to go to work on Friday. I have to go run 9.3 miles on Saturday morning. And I will have a bed to myself. And I won't have to make dinner for anyone. And I won't have to rush anyone out the door. And I won't have to fight over what shirt goes with which skirt. And I won't have to convince anyone to eat just a few more bites. And I won't have to wrangle anyone at bedtime. And I won't have to cut someone else's food before my own. And I don't have to be home by any certain time or bear responsibility for anyone's care before my own wants.

I will miss my kids and my husband.

A little...

Short but great post. The way you worded it was funny. Especially the "a little" part.

Enjoy your alone time!

PS Where's the rabbit statue?

I adore weekends (or even a whole week) like that. I envy you! Enjoy your alone time and good luck in the 15K!
