My Idea of a Good Time

Yes, my kids are gone. Off to camps for the week!

I've looked forward to having a week alone with my hubby for a while now. I told him weeks ago that it would be date night every night and we would party down. 

Don't act all high and mighty because I'm a bit thrilled to have my kids gone. Yes, I still will miss them. Yes, I love them deeply. 

Case in point ... the text between the eldest daughter and me last night.

But, seriously, alone time is good for a while. 

So I know you're on pins and needles wondering what in the world we did on our first day and night alone.

Well .... let me end the suspense.

#1 - I got to do 2 workouts today. Count 'em ... 2. Weights and Zumba!

#2 - I got to keep the volume of the TV on 20 past 10:00 p.m. In addition, I was able to walk and talk loudly upstairs and not have to worry about waking children.

#3 - I did not have to watch Disney or Nickelodeon all day.

#4 - I did not have to cook.

#5 - I did not have to drive anyone but myself anywhere today.

#6 - I was able to listen to Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles without anyone in the truck complaining about how "old" the music was.

#7 - I laughed loudly at Stephen Colbert at 10:30 p.m.

#8 - I will wake up at the late 7:30 a.m. and only have to worry about dressing and feeding myself.

#9 - Beau and I get to carpool all week and save money on gas.

#10 - Really, I just wanted to play with my newly-won iPad! Yep. Won it yesterday! So excited!

This week should prove to be thrilling!
