I Thought They'd NEVER leave!

Ok, I love my little family, but when Jason told me he was taking the girls to his parents house in Rockford today so I could have some time to myself, I was overjoyed to say the least. He has been so busy with the new company this week and with other freelance work as well that I've basically been on call with Juliana and the baby 24 hours a day. Plus, Ava chose this week to have erratic sleeping patterns, getting up every two hours all night- and yesterday she decided she would not go down for a nap the ENTIRE DAY. I honestly dont know how she stayed awake for over 12 hours but she would not sleep for more than 20 minutes at a time. Needless to say, over the course of this week I had made a smooth transition from mommy into bonafide zombie so I am so completely happy to have a day for ME ME ME!!!
The three of them left a little after 1 pm and they won't be back until later tonight. So far, I've managed to exercise for a full hour without anyone interupting me to pour them juice or help them on the potty. I've gotten to take a long, hot shower instead of sitting in my sweaty workout clothes for half the afternoon. I've also started taking all my old skinny clothes out of the garage and washing the funky garage smell out of them. Seriously, it's like opening Christmas gifts to see my old clothes again. I have some things that I bought last spring right before I found out I was pregnant so I had totally forgoten I even owned them. Some clothes have the tags still on!
Now I'm going to lounge around and do some stretching while I watch some tv completely unsuitable for three year old viewing. I'm either going to watch my 12 Monkeys dvd or the original Terminator movie (which I've never seen.) I've also got Wednesday's episode of Angel beckoning from my TIVO. I heard it was really great and has Andrew, one of my favorite Buffy characters aside from Spike, guest starring. Quite frankly, it had better be great because this seaon of Angel has been rather lackluster and I'm coming dangerously close to losing my faith in Joss. And that's saying a lot for me to doubt Joss Whedon becuase I was a rabid fan of Buffy all the way unti the end. Even when people were calling season 6 and 7 disasterous, my loyalty remained true. I sit at home and watch my Firefly dvd set with a tear in my eye for the amazing show that will never again be because Fox would rather air crappy shows like animals attacking or police chases on Friday nights instead of Joss' masterful storytelling.

But I digress. I must get back to my me-day if I want to do all these things and then take a nap before the cavalry arrives back home again. Yay!

  1. Hehehe. It's so funny to see how long your entries get when there aren't any screaming babies around! So glad you had a nice day to yourself. I sent you an email, but in case you read this first, could you send me a link to the address I need to add a new entry on my blog? Jason changed it from to something else, and I can't remember it.
