Day 1 of Child Abandonment: Going well. No tears from either party, which shows that both were completely ready for this separation. Now...what to do with all this extra time I have NOT doing "Mom" stuff...?
The twins are going to preschool, two days a week for a few hours in the morning. With Evan in 1st grade now, I have the WHOLE HOUSE to myself for a bit! Not a huge amount of free time, but it's so wonderfully quiet for those hours.
Think of all the stuff I could get done! If I was smart, I would kick my to-do list in the tush and be done with the whole house in a few hours! It would be sooooo clean!
Hmm...sounds boring. And I don't want my husband to get the wrong idea about what kind of housekeeper I am. I've set the bar low...I should keep it there.
Next idea? Go all Home Alone and jump on the beds, watch Supernatural on Netflix (ON THE BIG TV) while eating muddy buddies in the middle of the living room. "I'm eating dessert in the living room, for breakfast AND I don't have to share!!!"
Although, I just worked my butt off to fit into a size 6 pant...pretty sure I don't want to ruin that by eating my weight in muddy buddies.
I could work on my large list of hobbies and actually accomplish something that I've been storing for years. Knitting, a puzzle, a good book, stained glass projects or one of my painted signs...
I don't want to burn myself out with all that excitement. It's only day 1 of preschool. I have a whole year to have tons of fun. Plus, I want to spend time writing. Time to put on my bra and work on my book. (I know it sounds weird, but that's how you know I mean business. I put on my bra.) Not nearly as fun, but I do have a small dish of muddy buddies by my side. And it's quiet. What more could a girl ask for?
