A Post Where I Don't Whine About Anything!!

I know, a miracle isn't it. Is it even possible? Seriously, don't blink or you might miss it ;)

My husband is going to be going out of town on business soon. I feel so evil being overjoyed at his being gone. Well, maybe not quite "overjoyed" as much as relieved. It's awful I know ;) With my hands as full as they are these days you think I would be saying the opposite (bordering on a whine here), but sometimes it doesn't make much of a difference whether he's here or not. Things just aren't quite as tense when he's gone. (Although I do think he's been making small efforts here and there to help out and do things with the kids).

Anyway, here's why I get a little party attitude going on:
  • I can sleep with as many lights on as I want! I must admit, I'm a little afraid of the dark, but he can't sleep with any lights on. We compromise by leaving a night light in the bathroom.
  • I can stay up as late as I want without having to worry about waking him up when I come to bed! I've always been a night owl. And he's one of those that has to go to bed just after the news. It's one of our biggest clashes. As much as I can't stay awake - I hate going to bed early! I feel my most productive time is when the house is completely quiet and full of sleeping people.
  • I can do whatever I want when the kids go to bed! I always have plans of doing dishes and laundry late at night when he's gone, but then I never follow through... always end up wasting a bunch of time doing nothing but stalking my facebook friends on the computer. Or playing those stinking addictive games on facebook.
  • I can fall asleep watching television!
  • I can watch a bunch of girly movies with Tweenie ;)
  • I can make whatever I want for dinner! He's kind of picky - kind of a meat and potatoes kind of guy. He hates it whenever I make anything fru-fru ;) I'm totally getting some Feta cheese and pita bread - oh and hummus! Mmmm. I love to make feta salads in pita bread. And I love pita and hummus. Sure I could buy these things for myself for lunch, but it just seems extravagant. And to be honest, I just now googled whether you can eat Feta while you are nursing. And yay that restriction is lifted ;) I just assumed that whatever you can't eat while pregnant you can't eat while nursing. I kept forgetting to ask my doctor after I had my first son, and I've pretty much been pregnant or nursing since then... and it's always been one of those questions I mean to ask after having the baby... I can't believe I haven't had Feta in 5 years! Moving on...
  • I can turn the heat up to something a little more civilized! And pretend like I have no idea why we went through so much propane that month...
  • I can drink martinis naked. Oh, wait, sorry - that was Dharma & Greg. If I wasn't nursing, I might actually make a few margaritas! Or a whole blender full just for me!
I always make all these lofty plans to get a million things done after the kids go to bed, but then I just so enjoy sitting around in the quiet that I don't want to disturb it by actually doing anything ;) I'm pretty boring and lame, so I just go to bed with the TV and lights on and fall asleep way too early!

Truth be told I have some of the same ideals. When the weatherman is working odd hours I get the most done. Like face book, games on facebook, blog reading. Umm I mean house work and school work! hehehe.

I totally feel the same way when my husband is away on business! There's such a freedom that I feel, all of a sudden. I totally get what you mean. It's like there's 1 less person to take care of!

Hope you have a great time!

Haha! I know what you mean! Especially the heat thing!

Josh is going to play poker tonight and in my head I'm saying "Yes! A night to sit on the computer without my husband saying 'all you do is sit on the computer'".

This made me laugh - I LOVE having the house to myself. Although, I do find it hard to sleep when Matt's not home.

I feel bad for whoever I wind up marrying. I'm afraid of the dark, too. I HAVE to have some kind of light, or I spend the rest of the night glued to my bed in fear.
