My sister in law took my kids for a play date this evening. Wanting to take full advantage of the situation I decided I did not want to cook dinner and we should go out to eat. The conversation went something like this...Oh, wait let me set the scene first. I look like a wench, because I did not get a shower or time to brush my hair or put on make up before offering up my self to babysit for a friend all day while she sat in the ER with her husband (a whole other post). JC has done yard work and was at the time reclined in his desk chair zoned into a replay.
Me-"I'm hungry. We have no kids, if I shower and make myself presentable, do you want to go out? What sounds good?"
JC-"A glass of ice water."
I get his water and head off to the shower, do my hair, make up and get dressed, it took me 20 minutes. (Like I said, I was hungry!)
Return to the office.
JC-"What are you dressed up for?"
Me-"I said, I'm hungry! I need to eat. I am going, do you want to come or should I bring you home something?"
JC-"Oh. No I will go. Where do you want to go because I'm not dressed up and I'd need a shave...."
Me-"I'll give you thirty minutes then I'm leaving with or without you!"
He took forty, but I was feeling generous so I waited. Tell me how I was able to shower, shave, dry and straighten my hair, apply make up and be ready in twenty and all he had to do was shower and shave
SIL-"Can the kids stay for a sleep over?"
Me-"What, all four of them?" *crossing fingers*
Her-"Yes, if that's okay."
Me-"Sure, I will bring their things by later."*dancing a jig o' joy!*
Then I retired to the driveway to talk with my BFF. Where I talked a mile a minute because at dinner I had some
I am like a teenager who's parents leave them alone for the first time over night. You see, this is only the second time since we've had kids that we have been childless all night. That is twice in eight years! The first time was last weekend when JC's sister took the kids for a night. You remember, that other romantic night we had together. Yeah, I am not quite sure what happens to me when the kids are gone, but I pretty much get that "woo hoo no rules" feeling that teenagers get when mom and dad leave. Watch out it's a crazy partaaaay over here! I was really having more fun when my BFF was awake. Too bad she had to go to bed. She said something about being in the ER all day, kids being home, responsibilities, yada yada....
I think my sugar high just crashed...zzzzzzzzzzzz! *drooling on the keyboard*
