My kids are gone for the next 2 weeks to “Camp Grandma” (aka: mom needs a sanity break). The love it, they go to the pool, the beach and other random fun places like the fort and the CG station. They play with all mine & my brothers old toys, and happily this year will get to play with their cousin Kyler who now lives just down the road.
Meanwhile, my life since they left is boring. Monday night, I went to bed at 7:45pm, and laid there reading for 2 hours. I was bored out of my skull. No dinner to make, no laundry to catch up on, no kids, no boyfriend. Seriously….I am so used to chaos and “busy” that I tend to feel lost when I have “nothing to do.” The no boyfriend thing is especially frustrating for me, since the last two months or so I felt like the only time we spend together is on weekends at the ball field. I’m trying VERY hard to be supportive of all his big projects at work that are keeping him from date nights & nights on the couch watching TV, but its damn hard! I want a date, where we pick a place to eat and we go, and we talk, and no one is checking their email every 5 minutes, or having to rush home to have a skype meeting with someone overseas. Yes, I’m being whiny, I’ll admit it – BUT….sorry I’m not sorry.
Tuesday morning I made coffee at home, which I don’t normally do. I was absentmindedly putting sugar in awhile singing along to the radio, then I took a sip of it and nearly choked. Clearly, I put like 1 cup of sugar in it. It was gross and turned me off coffee for the rest of the morning. At least it was sugar and not salt. And the fact that I am reliving this moment is keeping me from wanting to drink the coffee I just made myself…ewww!
Tuesday evening – friends came over for hot dogs & to go to the pool. Aka: if we can swim in your pool, we will feed you – which I am totally cool with. Free food, friends to laugh with – I’m all for it! It was a nice middle of the week giggle fest with 2 fabulous ladies, their boys and Patrick. Tuesday evening, I also vacuumed a lot after they left. I vacuum when I get frustrated or feel like things are out of control (keep in mind, there is a difference between the chaos I thrive on, and feeling out of control). Something about vacuum lines making me feel like I have control over something, and I will repeat over and over the same spots for an hour. I just had a lot on my mind. Do you have any weird habits when you get frustrated?
Wednesday – sort of a silly day at work, we all ended up leaving at 4:30 to go to Cantina 76 for 2 for 1 margaritas. We split some apps and talked and talked. It was good, and I enjoyed it. I love Cantina’s tacos too…Peruvian shrimp with sweet slaw is delicious!
What’s your week looked like?
