Woo hoo! It's Sunday...

And my daughter just left town with my grandparents to spend the night at their farm -
Free time! Free time! Whatever will I do?
I’m thinking that maybe I’ll start cataloging my books and weeding some out of my bookshelves to make room for the piles of books on my desk and on the floor. I have to do this every so often because I just don’t have enough room, and I hate it! I don’t want to part with ANY of them…
I’m also thinking maybe I’ll try to do the weekend assignment for a change – the problem is that all my favorite pictures are of my daughter, and I just don’t feel comfortable right now posting her picture, so I’ll have to find something else I like…we’ll see…
I just saw the movie ‘Love Actually’, and it is wonderful.
Hey! My daughter’s gone, and I can watch whatever I want on TV, or take a nap, or go out for a jog…wait, I can go out, period, wherever I want…
I just don’t know what to do with myself, it’s like the reverse of when you were a teenager and your parents went out of town (LOL)…
I’m off now, to try and be irresponsible for a few minutes, it’ll be hard but I’ll give it my best shot!
p.s.  D's birthday went very well...apparently it doesn't matter what I get him, he loves it, and me, regardless.  :)


  1. I can imagine the quiet evening you will have with no children at home   john

  2. I agree with you ... it's the opposite if when our parents left us alone!!  You feel much as you miss your fell free like a little kid again to do what ever you want!!
    I am glad D's birhtday was special!  That deserves an "aawwww"
    Hugs, Julie

  3. While I was reading, I kept forgetting that you have a boyfriend, because I was thinking about sending you to Barnes & Noble.  I am 40, overweight, angry and wear sloppy clothes and every time I go there some man is hitting on me.  They are usually not that bad looking either.  The other night a man spent at least 5 minutes talking to me about The Hardy Boys.  I really wanted to know why standing in the B&N Starbucks line did he feel like I wanted to talk about the Hardy Boys.   But if you ever want to get rid of a man in a bookstore just talk about Jane Austen, it will do it every time. LOL!  

    Ooooh, you should go see Vanity Fair.  I am thinking about going alone one day this week after I am done with classes, maybe catch a matinee.

    Very good about the birthday, I am glad it went well!

  4. Have some fun with your free time!!

    I am glad D had a nice birthday!!
