this is becoming a trend in our house. Not so disturbing, which in and of itself is disturbing.
The screamers departed the premises on Wednesday evening, with the eldest informing me that he would not be home again until Monday. My mother just laughed and stated they could stay as longs as they/I wanted them to stay. An ongoing trend in the Ozark house...my willingly sending my children off to the parental figures for extended stays (upwards of 3 days at a time now).
I distinctly remember a time when I disliked even leaving my screamers for short jaunt to the grocery...now I'm waiting, bag in hand, at the door when my parents come to get them. As of this very moment, I have NO clue when my children will return. I'm not worried, I know where they are. Besides I managed to survive my childhood under my parents' supervision, my boys should be able to do the same...right?
So Mommy has another day off...and has no clue what to do with it!! The weather thingy down on my toolbar is saying partly sunny with a high of near 70 today. Methinks I'll be grabbing my camera (the good one...the 35mm...fine, I'll take the digital too) and going for a wandering walk around the lake. But first, I'll be sleeping in...which translates to anything past 7:30, lol. (For the record the current time in my hills is 1 a.m.)
Today is sure to be nice...silence, sleeping late, quiet coffee time, long walk...yeah, nice. If I'm feeling spunky, I may just walk into town for lunch. But then again lunch in the woods sounds good too. Hmmmm.
