An Afternoon to Myself

There was once a time in my life (like this morning) that I thought I would LOVE an afternoon completely to myself. My wish came true. Around 2:30 my mom and dad stopped by and whisked Lyndsi and McKay off to the mountains for a little camping. Feeling the excitement rising and anxious to luxuriate in my little bit of freedom, I settled the baby down for a belated afternoon nap. least 2 hours all to myself! No snacks to fix, faces to wipe, no fighting...I was able to finish a movie without any interruptions. And then what? I was at a complete loss. I had forgotten how long a couple of hours could be. Not much on TV, especially when there are no kids begging you to let them watch cartoons instead of Oprah. No little giggles or prolonged silences to investigate. Nothing. Honestly, it was a little bit of a let down. On the bright side, there's always tomorrow to set things right! I'll have almost a full work day with just me and my babe who still takes 2 naps a day. And, Jeff is taking me out to dinner tonight. Yay!
