I have what every mom would love: A weekend of freedom.
My husband just left for Florida and I am taking the kids to my in-laws for the weekend.
I know this all sounds like Heaven right?!
When all this came up initially I was worried, because I had just started a new job and didn't want to pay for a babysitter all day Saturday while I was at work. I think my in-laws thought they were doing me a huge favor by taking the kids for the weekend. It is pretty huge that they offer to do this sort of thing but it caught me a bit of guard. I mean, what am I supposed to do without Brian and the kids?
I can watch what I want on TV.
I can run errands by myself without time limits.
I don't have to yell at anyone to put underwear on. This is the most important one.
In theory this all seems wonderful, but I haven't been by myself in at least 8 or 9 years.
At least for an extended period of time. And mostly if I was by myself I was grocery shopping or running a quick errand, not alone for the weekend with only my life to think about and plan.
Its just weird and I don't do weird well.
I have even tried to book on ENTIRE Saturday up at work so it will take up more time until the kids and Brian get home.
I know. I'm pathetic.
I am sure it will be a wonderfully nice weekend that I need, but I am still nervous.
