For the first time in like forever……it is quiet. If you strain your ears you can hear the washing machine and the dryer….the guinea pig doing whatever it is he does to make up his day….perhaps a truck moving around outside. But really….that’s it. As of today everyone is back doing what they do, except me since I seem to be sitting here on the couch and actually posting something.
I do miss the kids. Really. Well…. for the most part. We had a nice vacation. They were loud and crazy, but aside from a trip to urgent care for the removal of a giant wad of Play-Doh from Evel’s ear, all other issues we fairly easily resolved (note to you all…Play-Doh deep in the ear is best removed by skilled professionals, like doctors or people who know how to pin down and wrestle crocodiles).
So where are we at in the Crack House? All the decorations are put away….expect for the fake tree which lies in three parts behind me. The pre-wired lights have gone mental and need sorting. Laundry is in a reasonable state….although I have an extra load today (thank you Eval for a 2am wet bed sheet change). There is even enough food in the house. So why do I have this chunk of free time….simple. I forgot to make an appointment for more PT this week and my email to Pouty’s teacher to come in and help was so unclear I am fairly certain she wondered if I’d been drinking when I typed it. I’d worry more about that, but as it has led me here, I’ll put it down to divine intervention.
Until a 1pm pick-up the world is my oyster. So….if you’ll excuse me, I am going to stare out the window and finish my cup of tea. If I feel like really pushing out the boat I’ll even risk a shower. Maybe even manage to shave both legs. Seems a bit weird though…..would one of you come bang on the bathroom door for me? It seems too much of a luxury…..
