Sanity Break for ME!

Right now I think I'm having an out of body experience .... either that or I'm dreaming. I'm sitting at home on this beautiful August day ... completely alone. All three kids have been dipersed to various sleepovers and Brad is at work.

What caused this heavenly treat for moi? Have I been a good girl lately? Have my planets aligned and I didn't know about it? Or are the forces that be seeing how stressed I am lately in the inevitable "Mid August Natterfest" that my kids have signed up for whole-heartedly? Who knows? I don't even care ... I'm alone in a peaceful house.

I'd like to take the time to thank those who made this sanity break possible. The YMCA camp for having Cub sleep overnight, my parents for having Missy Moo stay overnight and let's not forget 9 year old Karate Guy ... who called up my mother-in-law (thanks to her as well) and asked for a sleepover since his sibings were going to be away for the night and he wanted Brad and I to have a date night. Awwww.

So what am I going to do with this free time? Um, read ... as well as finish the laundry and maybe even *gasp* clean my ensuite. Yes everyone, I know ... I'm living the dream! Tonight Brad and I will go out for a lovely dinner so neither of us has to cook and revel in the quiet. Ahhh, bliss.

I know that one evening doing our own things will definitely make our hearts grow fonder and hopefully the kids will end the "Mid August Natterfest" and prepare for the next big event which spans the next 3 weeks .... Back to School Prep (in which I regularly break into song and start singing or humming the Staples commercial "It's the MOST wonderful time ... of the year!"). Brings a tear to my eye every time. ;)
