No kids this weekend!!!!!!!

NOT ONE!

My SIL took all of 'em! All my raging horde is at her house! I didn't know whether to hug her or send benedryl so she could sedate them! (kidding!)

It's the Wookie's birthday on Sunday.

We are going house hunting and OUT.

Without kids, out!

I don't know if I'll remember how to act without kids. I hope I don't reach over and cut his steak for him or something.

grin


I never had to take the Kobayashi Maru test until now. What do you think of my solution?

O'hana means family, and family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.

Oh My!!

I'm sure you'll remember what to do without kids in no time at all! blush

Have a great weekend!! I know this kind of "vacation" doesn't come along very often, so make the best of it. Even if you do nothing, it will be nice. No snotty noses, skinned knees, spilled milk to clean up....ahhhhhhh....and to think you will miss them and want them all back by sunday!

Woohooo!!!!
I hope you and wookie have a MARVELOUS time!!!!
Time away from the brood is valuable!

DH and I have FOUR days coming after July 4th weekend! Eldest DD is getting married on July 5th, then our DS & YD are going away with grandparents! YAY!!! Oh! and we got rid of two of the three dogs and the cat for the time too!!! So it's just us and one dog!

So after months of frantic planning and stress from the wedding, we get four days to decompress...and reconnect...no time for US lately and it sucks!

Happy Bday to Wookie!!!
Have a GREAT weekend!!

Hugs, Frags

Thanks guys!

The clock is going so S-L-O-W today.

Pert near 14 years together and I STILL get flutterbyes in my stomach thinking about him.

Jerry made my ears turn red.

MAL,

Conversely, Kimmy is a lucky woman to have the Wookie.

Dealan,

Have a great time with no kids. DH and I are empty nesters and have learned to love the freedom and the incredible SF in the last few months. blushI wish the same for you.

I would love to read your story as I am unfamiliar with it except references in recent posts but the link does not work. ??

God's Blessings,

Say

Give it a day or two, Say.

Our website admin is across the pond and prolly snoring her little red head off right now, so she doesn't know that the site is down.

Basically I'm a BW. My Wookie has 2 OCs from the adultry, and we have custody of them.

Good for you.
I'm happy for both of you.

It's about your turn.

We have a goal to do it twice a year, and it is glorious and beautiful.

I won't come for dinner this weekend.

I think sometimes about all the pain in the world. I hope we can ease that here, even if only a little bit.
