Holey Moley!

Maggie and Nathan have decided that not this weekend, but next weekend they are going on a 3-day weekend getaway. I asked them if they wanted me to keep the kids, and they asked me what I wanted to do. I told them that for as much as I loved them, that the idea of having a couple of blissfully quiet days with NO ONE here but me was too good an opportunity to pass up. I'm not kidding, it was yet another realization that I'm never alone anymore - there is always someone else there the whole bloody time. So next Thursday, they will stay here with me overnight. Then I'll take Cole to school and keep Avery for probably half the day and then I get down time a l l... b y... m y s e l f...

I get to be lazy and watch as much TV as I want, I get to sleep as long and as late as I want, I get to jump on my bike and go riding without checking with anyone else first, and most of all - I won't have to divide my attention for anyone or anything and constantly be on guard.

This couldn't be coming at a better time, either. I feel completely run down and stressed out, and need the break. Even my "down time" isn't really down time, considering it is nothing more than shutting myself in a room and trying to ignore all of the noise on the other side.

All of that having been said, I'm really looking forward to this Saturday and movie night! We're going to have too much fun. I'm going to be with Damien pretty much all weekend, as Friday night we're watching The Matrix so he can explain to me what the HELL is going on with that movie. Being that my interest in sci-fi type movies is limited to maybe 3 films in my lifetime, I need help. then Saturday we're doing the movie thing at home with friends, and Sunday we're going to see Matrix Reloaded on Sunday. I'm actually looking forward to it, I just have to remind myself to bring my foamy earplug thingys in case it is too loud. Last thing I want is a migraine.
