Today is our last day of staying at ET's house.
My intention was to have everything packed and partially loaded into the car last night....oh well.
I'll get on that soon. I'm going to make the boys do most of it anyway.
It is somewhere around 9:00 AM right now. I forgot to ask ET when to expect them back. Hopefully it will be after I finish cleaning up the kitchen. Most of the other cleaning has been done. The boys did most of it. I waited on them all week and even chauffeured (I'm tired of looking up that word on dictionary.com...I really should remember it by now) them to the mall twice more after the first fiasco!
I really enjoy getting away from home with my kids. It was a fun week. No matter what we do or where we go, it is almost always a stress-free and relaxing time.......after all, if no one lost their temper during the first 24 hours here, I think we are doing pretty good. When we are away from home we are all more relaxed and even my headaches seem to subside. Too bad those darn voices don't subside too!
NOTE: Please realize that when I refer to the voices I am KIDDING!!!....it is more of a general humming.....which is better than a admiral humming....or a lieutenant humming----KIDDING!!) Actually ( and really) it is just the typical ADHD rush of thoughts that are always swirling around....so much to say....so little of it matters...most of it is random....but it there just begging to be said.
Anyway, as I said, ET will return home, she and her family will get their van unpacked, they'll do a few things, maybe relax and grab a bite to eat....uh oh...is there any food left? Oh yeah...there are plenty of cans of veggies...sigh. Anyway, then she will sit down at her computer. She'll probably check up on her e-mails and do some random things. At that point she may decide to see what is going on in blog land. She is a regular reader of mine.....I'm pretty sure she'll read my mini-series....gulp......I think I'm going to go and finish cleaning up that kitchen now. Maybe I need to run to the store and buy a bottle of wine too. Remember that one that was already half empty....remember those 2 glasses I had on the first night.....did I fail to mention the glass or two that I had on a few other nights? (OH STOP.....Just a glass or too in the evening....not even tipsy------"Have I been drinking officer? Well, Just barely. I only had 2 beers with dinner." (a few of my policeman friends say that is one of the most heard phrases they get).
Well ET, hope you enjoyed your vacation. I don't think we broke anything. Actually, there was that door knob on one of the closet doors but Alberquando said it just fell off in his hand. I think I'll go see if I can fix that before you get home. Also, you may want to go to the grocery store soon.....after all you did say help yourselves...once again, "peas and corn anyone?".
What is that you asked? Of course we'll come back next year! Looking forward to it already.
(ok, now I'm reallly going to go and clean that kitchen!)
