C-Dub, tired of being home alone with Pookah on the weekends, took my Pookah and went out of town. So I’m home alone. These are my thoughts.
It s quiet in my house today. it was really quiet yesterday too. It’s amazing how you get used to the noise and mayhem that surrounds a toddler. I’m lonely. Ive been wandering from room to room looking for stuff to do. I haven’t had to get up and fix anyone’s breakfast. I didn’t have to worry about what’s for dinner for anyone but me. I cleaned up the den, and it was still that way when I got home from work this morning. The kitchens still perfect. There are no clothes on the bathroom floor. There was noone telling me “eat Mommy”. There was no inevitable argument with C-Dub about him going to play golf and me getting a nap. I could do what I wanted to do. It’s funny how you wish and wish for peace and quiet and time alone. You just sit and imagine what you would do if you got time alone. Well, I got it. And i’m not feeling it too much. Lucky me I had to work this weekend(as usual) which is why I missed this little trip out of town. Some folks told me to stop complaining, ENJOY this time alone. But I find that I’m just not one of those parents. I like Pookah. I like seeing the mayhem and madness he gets into. I like watching him, trying to figure out how his little mind in working. I mean really, I LOVE my alone time as much as anyone else. But I just want a few hours a day. A few hours to get myself in order, to get my house in order to get my mind in order to get my life in order. Just a few hours to breathe without worrying about Pookah or C-Dub. Not 3 whole damn days! So, I had big plans of what to do this weekend. I cleaned. Yes, I cleaned. I watched an episode of horders that got me obsessed with cleaning my bathrooms. Those folks are so damn nasty. But anyway, I cleaned, I had my bottle of wine( yes you read that right) and I got some reading done. But didn’t do much else. I spent way too much time looking at Pookahs photos online, waiting for C-Dub to text me photos and just waiting. It’s amazing how life gives you what you think you want, and you figure out that you really don’t want it.
