Livin’ la Vida Loca!

August 19, 2009 at 3:29 am 11 comments

Well, not exactly, but just knowing I have that option, if I really, really wanted to is just INSANE! For the first time in two-and-a-half years, I am flying solo, baby! And, for FIVE whole days!

There was a time when I didn’t think I could handle being separated from my munchkin. But, yesterday when I returned home from dropping Danny and Reagan off at the airport, I drank in the silence and quickly became drunk. That’s when I knew I had it in me. While they’re visiting MawMaw and PawPaw in New Olreans, Mommy gets to re-live the glory of her pre-diaper days! Whoot, whoot!

So here’s what’s on the agenda:

characters_clowns1. SLEEP!

2. Cirque du Soleil’s “Kooza” with Crystal, AKA Sarah’s Mommy. This will be the first time we’ve done anything together sans the short people.

3. Dig out that massage gift certificate I got for Christmas. I wonder where I put that thing?


5. Happy Hour and a movie with Karen where there will be sure to be lots of reminiscing about our fleeting youth as bow heads at ASU.

2440598381_f0b0536a606. Trip to Costco where I sample every sample, twice. Leisurely meander down every aisle and leave only when I’m ready to and not when someone starts hanging off the side of the colossal push cart screaming hysterically because she dropped her cinnamon churro on the floor somewhere between the 50-jet, 6-person lounger spa and the giant tubs of pulled pork.

7. Did I mention, SLEEEEEEEEEPPP?!!!

One day down, four to go. Gotta’ make ’em count!

    Thanks everyone! So far, only one distressed phone call from the hubby not being able to find something. Not about diapers or toothpaste. His wallet.

    I’m so proud of you! I’m not sure I could deal! I have yet to spend a night away from my little dude. Wimpy, wimpy, wimpy! You go mama bird! Fly the coup! Jump out’a the nest! Chirp very loud! Whatever it takes…just enjoy!

      Are you serious? And you have family living right there? I’d so be taking advantage of that! You need a night out! Do I have to come there and make you? ‘Cuz, I will!

    Glad to see you are enjoying those precious moments of free mommy time. Sam was about Reagans age before I let her go for a night away even to Maw-Maws. I had separation anxiety the first time. But quickly learned to enjoy those few and rare moments of peace. 🙂

      I’m on a crash course right now, Gina, and so far, so good!

    What is it with everyone suddenly talking about Cirque de Soleil? Janice was just at a show and now I’m soooo jealous. LOL

    Glad to see you’re scheduling in SLEEP! I’m a big fan of sleep… but I don’t always do it on a typical schedule. LOL

A half-hatched role-reversal takes flight on a wing and a prayer.

Life is a misadventure mixed with mayhem.
