Gone, but not forgotten....

So, email is checked, blogs are read, (It's called priorities, people!), bathrooms are cleaned, clothes are washing, and hot tea is made.  And it's not even....ok never mind what time it is since I still have my pj's on. 

And why is this blog worthy, you may ask.  Because for the next few days, I am kid-less.  No kids.  No maternal responsibilities. 

Well, except for washing their clothes, cleaning their bathroom, and maybe going through all their toys and throwing away all the JUNK.

And no, that won't lead to one bit of drama come Monday.

Both kids are visiting their grandparents for a long weekend.  This is always a fun time for them.  Probably a tiring time for the in-laws, but what can I say?  They asked for it.

Becca will get to go to her Aunt Cissy's 2nd grade classroom---always an exciting day for her.  She's gone multiple times over the last few years and always enjoys seeing how other kids "do school." 

While she's at school, Hayes will get lots of alone time with Granddaddy probably.  There will be endless Candyland games.  And DAYS of playing with old Star Wars toys.  Daniel found his 30 year old  Millineum Falcon and X-wing Fighter (look at me sounding like I know what I'm talking about) the last time we were there.  Hayes has been dying to play with them again.

So who's laughing at me that on my "day off," I'm blogging about my kids?

Seriously though, I love hanging out with my kids and I know I'm going to miss their sweet little faces. 

You know, just after I run errands alone, get a pedicure, eat what/where I want to for lunch (when I want to eat),  and bask in the quietness that is my house.   

Little knuckleheads.

I don't think I have ever had one of those weekends. Can I just send my kids to YOUR house for the weekend. You know, it is so quiet there...they would fill the place with such JOY! ;o) Have a GREAT and restful weekend.

Okay, so I'm a week late in reading this, but can I just say I love you!!! I love it that you end your post with "Little knuckleheads." It's nice to get things done while they're gone, but I know you were ready for them to come home! And they're nearly the cutest little knuckleheads I've ever seen! :)
