SWEET, SWEET.........Silence

The house is EMPTY!

Brian took the 14-18 year olds from church on the Scout High Adventure.
I spent all day Tuesday buying all the food for it - which was an adventure in itself.
Then they loaded up yesterday morning and took off.

Good Riddance! ;)
You know I love them, but do you know what is 1,000 times better than leaing your kids home and getting away?
Having your kids leave home and leave you in an empty house.
I'm sure I would get sick of it in a couple of months! ;)

Anyway, they will be back Saturday.
One of the other leaders commented,
"So what are you going to do Gina, I bet you have spa treatments lined up, pedicures and three Girls Night Outs set up."
Hee hee - this guy doesn't know me well.

You know what I have lined up?


I wandering around the house doing nothing.
Here's what my nothing looks like -
Took care of the garden.
Sat out in the back yard and read a book.
Threw in a couple of loads of laundry.
Talked to friends on the phone.
Made a really good lunch and read the paper.
Read the Sunday School lesson for Sunday.
Started to clean out the closet in Parker's extra bedroom.
Went to Enrichment (only time I left the house) and helped my mom teach a cooking class.
Came home and read until I fell asleep.

Today will be more of the same except I might actually leave the house.
Next week, they all go to youth conference!

Woohoo! Enjoy your silence. I love it when everyone leaves and it's just me.

That sounds so great. I would love everyone to leave my house, too.

That sounds like a very nice day indeed. Be sure rinse and repeat!

Yay for you! I'm waiting for the day when that can happen here. Right now the ages are too far apart. Bummer.
