    My husband just took my boys camping for the next five days. I have no idea what to do with myself. This is the first time in more than a decade that I have this much time alone. I don't know how I am going to occupy my time. There is only so much reading, bubble bathing, and tv watching I can do...

    Ugh, I wish it was HOT here!!! It was actually snowing here this morning. Thankfully none if it stayed. I also wish I could have 5 days to myself. Here is an idea, we can switch. You can come here and take care of my 2 boys and DH and I will come sweat out in the sun there. LOL

    If it were me I would SLEEP. Sleep. Sleep. Hours of sleep, all in a long, long row. One after another. 8 hours. 10 hours. I would sleep in my bed on HIS side, my side, my sons middle part. I would snooze on the sofa, the porch swing, the floor, bathtub. You name it. I would SLEEP all over this house and yard. I might even write a poem entitled ODE TO SLEEP, a book "the great snooze and I"[​IMG]

    All 3 of mine were gone for the first time ever. It was great for an hour. Then I started missing them. Then I started imagining awful things. Then i envisioned they were grown and gone. [​IMG]
    Then daddy came home with devil dog and all was well again.

    [​IMG] Till devil dog flooded my bathroom last night. [​IMG]

    I can't remember - where are you again? I am heading to Murrieta on Sunday to pick up some week old pekins...... Coffee?

    I am in Pomona, I'd be up for coffee if you will be passing by somewhere near...


    ETA: I have really been looking forward to getting some extra sleep, but here I am, still online at midnight...
    At least I can sleep in!​
