The Kids Return

I know that I have been absent for the last week. Well there is a reason, although it doesn't really make sense. My kids have been gone for the last week. That is right, Grandma and Grandpa came and took both of them away for a week of vacation.

So with such a big opportunity, what have I been doing this week? Well a whole lot of nothing--at least quantifiable. I have been sleeping in, scouring the city for jobs (in my field and out/full-time and temp), spending loads of time with the hubby and some basic household organization.
It has been great. The hubs has had a rather slow week at work so he has been home everyday by 3pm and didn't even go in on Wednesday. We have had dinner together, went on walks and talked. It has been great. I remember the relationship that we had before we were married before kids...I fully believe that every couple needs something like this.

Ok, so it has been great. I missed the kids. I talked to them every night on the phone. They are coming home tonight. I can't wait to see them but hate to see this week go. Back to the normal schedule. Oh well.


  1. I love having the opportunity to do a whole lot of nothing. It's the absolute best way to utilize an extended bit of free time from your little ones.

  3. WOW! A week without kids...I would be so lost. LOL! I'm glad that you and the hubs were able to spend time together and rekindle your marriage. Sounds like it was a great week. But -- I'm sure you're stoked to see those kiddos, too. :)

  4. The first day or so is great... then the silence gets old.

  5. I've enjoyed reading your posts.
