Oh, the joy! The bliss! A practically empty house and The Day!
Hubby has taken the Big Three to Williamsburg for Oldest to play in a soccer tournament. The only reason BabyKid gets to stay here is because he has an Extended Lazer Tag Birthday Party just down the street from where I need to spend some time this afternoon. So Yay! for me! I have way less parenting duties this weekend! Which is a win/win/win/win/win/WIN because I was all but ready to haul in the duct tape and wire hangers. Teenagers and almost-ones are so rackafrackin’ noisy! When they’re “relaxing” its the music. When they’re in the “angst” we’ve all heard so much about, its the voices. When they’re obediently doing their chores, it’s the slamming of things…you get the idea.
So the Saturday morning quiet? It feels like Christmas morning to this weary Mama.
And just in time, too, since I volunteered for the 3:00 – 9:00 shift tomorrow at the Marathon Starting Line. That’s a.m. Tomorrow. Then right to church.
Oh, I don’t know what I’m gonna do with myself.
At least it’ll be quiet.
