The point of this post is not to reminisce over the past 3 years; the point of this is .... drum roll please... when Grandma Cindy leaves a day or two after the birthday party she's taking my boys with her for about 2 weeks!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!! This post is a celebration of my first real vacation in 3 years.
I did take a weekend off when the boys were 8 months, Jon and I went with some friends to Banff and Grandpa Ron & Grandma Terry watched our boys for the weekend. But they were so young that even though I had fun in Banff my thoughts were mostly on David and JD. This will be a real vacation in that I have time .. time for a bubble bath, time to actually get walls washed, baseboards scrubbed, carpets cleaned (doesn't sound like a vacation, does it? But when none of that gets done uninterrupted, it will be so nice to take on a project I can actually finish!) , heck, I'll have time to go to the bathroom without hearing "MOM! MOM, WHERE ARE YOU?" .
I am so excited. And not in the least worried. Grandma Cindy has this in the bag! Plus if in any way it is a problem, or the boys are homesick, or I miss them too much we just have to cut the visit short. My mother-in-law is so excited since she only gets to see the boys once, maybe twice a year. They know her and miss her, talk on the phone with her a lot, so I am not worried- they will have a great time.
And all the stuff I can do!!!!! This house needs an overhaul, and I can sleep in and still get tons of cleaning done. Maybe I'll wax the floors. Maybe I'll meet friends for lunch. Maybe I'll cook my husband a gourmet meal to be ready when he gets home from work. Maybe I'll ..... the possibilities are endless!
