Two Hours ALONE...

What to do? The smart part of my brain is saying clear out the crappy toys while I can and scrub the floors and get my car washed, the part of me who wants to be spoiled is telling me to have a facial, and the frugal self is calling for a rated R movie I have on the shelf at home.

The girl's friend's mom offered to take the girls for an afternoon and the boy will be with his girlfriend. I am really at a loss! It's been what feels like forever that I haven't had a child within a couple feet of me.

I'm wishing I had a girlfriend to just hang out with at non Starbucks coffee shop. The last time I had unexpected "freedom" I spent it shopping and bought unneeded items so I do not want to go to a mall. I'm really bad about shopping!

I'm feeling seredipitous about this little bit of pleasure. I love love love my kids, but once in a blue moon I like to just be me without attachments.

Hey you. Honestly, if you lived closer, I'd say let's go hang out. My best girlfriends all live so far from me, so I don't get to hang out with them all that often. I get the free time, but I usually end up getting caught up on work, or cleaning. I know it's different because I have no kids, but I still know what you mean. (kinda)

Aww that would have been great! I ended up staying - and I decided I REALLY like the mom and maybe, just maybe I do have a new girlfriend after all! What's cool is we live off of the same street. :) I haven't met another woman in this area in years. My street tends to be all male.

I would have opted for a hot bath and a good book. Followed by a nap.
