On the other hand, I will be missing these:
So I'm off to mark his name in all his underwear, douse him with a liberal shower of bug spray, lecture on the benefits of NOT arguing and quietly bit my fingernails to the quick
Yah....It's gonna be a loooong week.
They should have camp for adults. Or maybe they do. Maybe now they're called cruises.
Enjoy your naked time!
It'll do you both good, here from Michele's.

Walking around nekkid? Huh? What is that? Haven't been able to do that in eight years!
Enjoy your quiet week.
Oh Kara! You should embrace it. I wish I lived close to you and we would so hang out. Just enjoy it and do that all the forbidden stuff you want. When is he leaving?
Get a pedicure!

Carrie, He leaves this coming Monday and comes back on Friday, so it's not quite five days. I would LOVE to hang out...darn it
Your post about your Mom made my heart ache.
When my ex has the kids for longer then a weekend I make myself a list.
I revel in the blessed silence, sleep through the night, wake when I want to, read at my leisure, clean out the cupboards and frig, watch movies..during the day, dance in the living room, eat when I'm hungry, leave the dishes in the sink and renew myself.
Do for yourself the things that will recharge your batteries. For yourself and for your son.
I know it is quite boring with out your lil one. I am like you in the sense that I have never been single b/c I have always had my children with me.
Try to be a little selfish and think of YOU! It is fun when we make ourselves do that :O)
It'll be heaven and hell at the same time...much like motherhood.
not much longer, and he'll be gone.
go to the spa and treat yourself.
Keep on bloggin in the free world.
Okay - first of all - party's at your house next week. :-D
Secondly - you are going to enjoy this. Just do things that you enjoy. Sounds like you already have a pretty good list.
Oh, and just make sure you have a phone number to call and make sure he's okay. You may want to check up on him throughout the week. That mom-vibe just doesn't disappear overnight.
I bet you're are gonna wonder why you didn't make this happen sooner. :)
You'll be FINE. I promise. You will miss him, but you will have some great quiet time to yourself. You NEED this.
Wait...are you saying that you can actually get TO the bathroom without company? If mine don't attempt to follow me into the bathroom, then they stand right outside the door and talk to me the entire time I'm in there.
I'm a recovering single mother trying desperately to see humor in my day to day toil while simultaneously avoiding reality as much as humanly possible.
