Today at my kids school they held a block party. Picnic lunches, baseball games, face painting, balloon making, caricatures, and a dunk tank. Really awesome. Kids had a ball.
Hubby left with cherubs 2 & 3 to a boy scouts rocket launch. Cherub 1 invited a friend back to our house. Her friend wanted her to go to her house instead. Wha? Alone. Oh what should I do? I picked up a sub on the way home and ate it in 100% peace and quiet. (RELAX people...I am getting to the point.) Until:
H: Hi honey. We are on the way home!
Me: Great (sigh)! Did you have fun?
Two minutes of peace. It was unexpected. It was awesome. It was treasured. I guess if it was more I wouldn't appreciate it! :o)
