Let me preface this post by saying I love my children.
What's not to love?
That said, OMG, this kid-free week is the
Best. Week. Ever.
Seriously. Why don't I send them away more often so I can love them more? The night we drove home from dropping them off at their respective posts, Current Husband and I stopped for ice cream. Lovely. The second night, we went to the grocery store together, picked out some steaks and asparagus and wine and little mini apple pies and cinnamon ice cream and had a fantabulous dinner and then watched True Grit.
Ah. A film about death and punishment.
Isn't it romantic? Hold me...
CH then stayed up to play Modern Warfare on XBox 360 and I went to bed to commence with reading "Commencement". Bliss.
Today we met for lunch, and tonight we attended a fine arts meeting for the school, and then went out for wine, stuffed mushrooms, bruschetta, tiramisu, white chocolate bread pudding, and Irish coffees. I'm getting a quick blog post in, he's playing more Modern Warfare, and I'm going to bed to hopefully get another 50 pages read in my book.
Have I mentioned how KICK ASS this is?
I'm truly not wishing it away - I love the kids, and I don't want them to grow up and move out. I will cry like a big baby when they graduate. Some of my friends have kids who are starting to graduate, and honestly I get a little choked up thinking about THEIR kids graduating. But. There is something magical about having a little time to oneself. Pair it with some booze and delicious desserts and repeat. SWOON.
What I am currently digesting. Nom-nom.
We talk to the kids every day, they are doing great, so that is helpful. We know we will see them all on Saturday, so that is helpful. We are sleeping soundly, so that is helpful. We are eating delicious food and drinking delicious wine and getting some project done. This whole damn thing is a win-win.
I guess I have no real point here except to brag about my gluttony, so I'll sign off. But I'll sign off all warm and fuzzy and rested and well fed. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! I love camps and grandparents! And it's only Tuesday!
Have a great week Wifers!
