So yesterday Brian calls me and says, “What do you think about going to Denver this weekend?” His company needs a piece of equipment picked up in Denver and brought back here, meaning they would send him in a company truck with a company card for gas. He figured we could take the kids, see my sister’s family, maybe see his sisters, hang out for a day or so and then drive home. And I told him that that sounded nice, but what I’d REALLY like is if he took the kids and went to Kirsta’s while I stayed here.
AND HE DID.
They left this afternoon around 1, so until they get back on Sunday I have the house to myself. I have big plans to, you know, clean (and watch things actually STAY clean) and watch netflix by myself. Also big plans to sleep in tomorrow, but since I typically wake up on my own around 6:30 we’ll see how that goes. It’s a little bit strange knowing that I don’t have to tend to anyone’s needs but my own until they get back. Especially since this is the first time I’ve been away from the kids overnight since before Will was born. Although, I guess technically they are away from me. Anyway. I plan on enjoying my free time.
