Freedom!!!!!



I am over the moon. Today was the first day since before Thanksgiving (49 days if you're counting) that both older boys were in school and I had NO PLANS!!!! Christmas can't hold a candle to this feeling of excitement! Now granted, I had Soren with me, but he passed out around 10 so I had an entire hour and 40 minutes ALL TO MYSELF! Let me repeat that again. ALL TO MYSELF!!!!!!!!


So what did I do? Nothing. And it was fanfreakingtastic. I chatted with my friend K on the phone uninterrupted. That, is a feat on it's own. I caught up on my email... uninterrupted! I drank a hot cup of coffee. Can you believe that? I totally forgot how awesome hot coffee is and how much of a difference it makes!

And, I took a shower... uninterrupted!!!! And I got to stay in as long as I wanted!! I mean who knew that hot water could actually run out even if the clothes washer/dishwasher weren't on at the same time???? I didn't know! Did you? And I got to shave both legs at the same time!!!

Beautiful, just beautiful. I was grinning the whole time. Of course, now that I had a taste of freedom, I'm craving it again. Hopefully I can keep my schedule open on Thursday and Soren will cooperate again and pass out for his morning nap.

Oh joy!

haha, that's fantastic, congratulations! When Tim asked what I wanted to do Christmas morning, I said I wanted the bathroom to myself for at least an hour and no one was to so much as knock unless there was unstoppable bleeding.

That is most excellent, Mama. I am so happy for you and so jealous, too. ;)

Hi there,

I need some of this freedom, too! I'm glad school is back up and running again. And uninterrupted showers--what could be better?!!?

thanks also for your kind words on my blog yesterday. I really appreciate it. It helps to know I'm not alone.
