Three long days

The past three days have been the longest three days of my life... Well, that is probably an exaggeration, but it's seemed like forever. Why, you ask, all the impatience? Well, my DH and DS are going away on vacation tomorrow morning and...I'm staying at home. Woo hoo! Probably no one but a mom can appreciate why I would give up a week in a warm place for a week, alone, at home. But that's what I'm doing, and I can't wait.

For 3 days, we've been packing, figuring out which games and books to bring, which cords to which electronics, etc. etc. We are almost there. All we need to do is finish packing the final items, go to sleep, and wake up at the ungodly hour of 4 am. Then I'll drive them to the airport, drop them off, and probably drive home and go back to sleep.

So what do I have planned for my days of freedom? My big project is to do some home decorating. My current plans are to work on valances for a bunch of new shades we just put up around the house, to possibly repaint some of the kitchen cabinets and put on new hardware, and to do a ton of cleaning and cleaning out. Sounds like a blast, huh?

My other plans are to get together with some friends in a more leisurely fashion than usual; go shopping in some stores that I usually don't have the time to go to; go to some museums and movies; and possibly go to Kripalu for a few days of yoga if I can get it together.

So...I'm excited, but also feeling a bit guilty of how much I want them to leave already! I'm the kind of person who just needs some alone time, and I haven't had a lot of it lately. So hopefully this week will do the trick.
