However, the lure of hooking pulls me back, and Current Husband took the chilluns to the Wisconsin Dells. I texted him today to ask if he was having any luck hitting on single moms in bikinis, and he replied "Beluga whale in a seal colony", which is untrue but made me laugh. He's a funny one, that CH. I stayed home because the Hooker job only allows me 10 vacation days a year, and I've used two, and CH and I are going to see The Black Keys over Fourth of July weekend (YAHOO!!!) and that will take two vacay days, and with my six remaining days we want to do a couple of trips with the kids this summer. I only have four (FOUR!!) summers left with my oldest at home, so it's quantity time with a nice dose of quality.
Did you read between the lines here? I am home. ALONE, save for George the Superpet, who is really good at cuddling. I am so rarely home alone. Last night after work, I met a very dear friend whom I haven't seen in a while, and we had deliciously cold white wine and some spicy basil chicken noodles at a Thai restaurant. Outstanding. Tonight, I am meeting another very dear friend to have a facial and a pedicure with a gift card I've been carrying around, and then we are going out for a margarita! Whoo-hoo! Then I go home to cuddle with George the Superpet. Tomorrow night I am staying home and cleaning and going through things of the kids' while they are gone, hello Goodwill, and then they are home late.
I miss my lovely family, of course, but HELLO!
Nothing like a few days of decadent fun to recharge your batteries. So take a little time for yourself, Wifers, if you can. It's spring! Time to bloom.
Have a terrific week, I'm raising a muy delicioso margarita in your honor tonight!
