Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!

The sweet sound of silence! Evan took Nolan and Avrie to my parents this afternoon and won't be back until Saturday night! He'll be helping in the field and the kids will be creating havoc for Grandma! YipEEEEEeeeeeeee!! So far I have enjoyed a long walk, nursing Cole without interuption (wow!), a grocery store trip during which I saved $30 (wahoo!), cleaning the kitchen without kids asking countless times for another snack. Now I will go cook supper for ME. I will thank myself and clean up when I'm done.

But I already miss them =(

I say enjoy your time, pamper, even SPOIL, yourself.. and when they're back, you're ready to face the world again! : ) I also say have fun gramma and good luck!

I'm feeling your bliss! I remember all too well, and occasionally I still need/want them all to leave me alone in solitude & quiet for a while! Enjoy your time!!

do you feel a bit lost without them? it's like now that you have more time you don't know for sure what to do with it. i bet the house is a bit too quiet also. anyway, it does sound like you are enjoying the reprieve. what'd you cook for yourself?

don't be too amazed if their sort of extra naughty after being on "vacation" ..i was always amazed at how good they'd be somewhere else and then they get home and ...i'd want to send them scooting right back out the door! hope you had a great time catching up on some zzzzzzzzzz???? maybe?
