so yesterday, the hub took off for a boys-only fishing trip with his dad, grandpa, and brother. he'll be gone for several days, returning on tuesday afternoon. not quite as lengthy as the africa trip, but still a good chunk of time away. i'm cool with that, as i usually am about him taking off sans me - i relish the time alone to do whatever the hell i feel like, and then just as i'm missing him, poof! he's home.
as i'm driving the kid to school today - after which she goes back to the dark side for a week - she looks over mournfully at me and says "mom, how long are you going to be all alone till E gets home?"
i smile and tell her that he'll be back on tuesday. "but that's a long time for you to be by yourself! that kinda sucks, i'm sorry."
SHE CARES! she really cares :) i thought it was sweet.
the doc and the hub have both repeatedly shook their finger at me and told me to make sure i take it easy and not do too much. as much as i really love the excuse to be lazy as all hell, it just doesn't feel right. especially as we finally have an official moving date - which is looming ever-so-ominously near. the kid and i managed to make some headway last night in her room and my office...and then headed to in-n-out for dinner. ha! twice in one week for me. that's pretty crazy, considering i went for months without indulging in a yummy double-double. and this time i didn't hold back - i went for that neopolitan shake, too. oh, so scrumptious.
i've already been fairly productive this morning, too. i kept my word and hit the gym after dropping the kid off, and also dropped off a truckload of shower thank-yous at the post office. i'd love to elaborate, but it'll have to wait till next week. ;)
and last night, as the kid and i relaxed after stuffing ourselves silly, i busted out the bag of hello kitty marshmallow treats. because what i really needed was more snacks, right? there's always room for snacks. i popped one of those squishy puffs in my mouth, glanced down at the bag and found this:
i must've made a face similar to this:
because the kid took one look at me, ran over and saw what i was looking at, and cracked the hell up.
"BWAHAHAHAHA, mom, you're totally eating OLD marshmallows! ew!"
fuck it. i ate a few more and i'm eyeing the bag as i type this. hmph.
it's gonna be a hot ass long weekend, all. keep that water within arm's reach and stay hydrated! i don't want to hear about anybody passing out from the unbearable heat. be safe and have fun!
