I had a huge block of quality time all for me! It was blissfully appreciated, and bizarre.
So what did I do?
Well it started with a cup of coffee, silence, and a magazine.
Quiet is erie.
Next, I arranged for a ride on Carly.
That was so much fun.
I bounced a lot.
When I came home from that, I discovered that A had come home for lunch and locked the door that I left unlocked because I did not have a key. Because I gave my keys to parents. And I had to pee. The only hope that I had to getting into my house was climbing up to the second floor and hope that a deck door was unlocked. I had to put one of those cars that kids move with their feet on top of a picnic table, and hoist my mushy 3x preggo mommy body up the rails.
This was most amusing and I laughed at myself.
I had to stop that quick because with the laughing and the hoisting, I nearly peed myself.
Anyway, I finally got myself up on the deck to only find all the doors locked.
So I swore a bit, and violently shook the door.
I got to the bathroom with no time to spare and laughed some more.
Then I ate a really big thanksgiving left over plate
because I was such a stealthy person.
Then I figured that there would not be a better time to wrap all of the presents.
Then A and I read books, and talked, and all of the stuff that two parents would do when there were no kids in the house.
The next day, I was served breakfast in bed.
People it was good..
Then I headed out alone. I even snapped a picture of me with no kids trailing behind.
Couldn't believe it!
I was going to take more lessons with Carly. This time on tacking up, grooming, and yes more riding.
I totally needed Ibuprofen, as I was still a bit beat up from friday.
I am still a bit sore.
Then I was able to grab A's gift, and even got the stocking candy. I am officially done with Christmas shopping!
I came home, met up with A, and we headed over to Barnes and Nobles for some book perusing and coffee drinking.
It was such a beautiful thing.
The kids arrived home around 6:30 ish, two sleeping boys and a very tired girl. It was great to have them back again.
Also, in their absence, I have discovered that my house gets just as cluttered.
So I will no longer use the kids as the excuse. I think I am just as bad!
I feel refreshed mentally, and I am definitely giving that relaxed vibe back onto my kids. I think they enjoyed their break from us as well.
We had such a great day today, so thanks Mom and Dad!-K
