Should I Stay or Should I Go
Friday, August 04, 2006

Argh, Grrr...Grumble..

I articulate well I know...

All this frustration is over what should amount as a vacation from motherhood.

Kendell is going camping....sleep over camping.

It will mark the first time I have been alone for more then a night without my son in TEN YEARS

gag..ten years? I should be marked for Saint Hood by now right?

Has it been that long since I've been allowed to go to the bathroom without hearing, "mommmm, where ARE you??"

um, yes, yes it has.

So you can understand my mixture of anxiety, anticipation, and outright confusion on what the heck I'm going to do with five whole days of being single. Because I may not be married, but when your a parent, your never really single again....EVER

In anticipation of the momentous occasion I have thought of a few things I haven't been able to do in the last ten years or so:

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!

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)

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.

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.
