why "grown ups" still need mom & dad

so... in a fit of loneliness last week, my dad called to say he wanted the girls to come stay with them for a while. his close friend had just passed, and he didn't get to see them when my mom was out here in june, and so he made a decree. he was taking 10 days off, and the girls would come have festive good times. i'm all for that! then my mom, who makes slightly less reasonable plans, got involved and said they would keep them for 3 1/2 weeks! hooray! as long as the four of them are happy, i'm happy!

but the silence is a little eerie this morning... there's lots of it. this will be my longest kid-free stretch in 10 1/2 years... i don't know if i remember how to live for just myself. although, the more i think about it, the more i think that it'll come back pretty quickly! :)

already making plans, cause i won't need a sitter....
making just one thing for lunch - one thing
I want...
naps when i feel like it...
going to movies with curtis....
less laundry....
no fighting to referee...

hmm.... this could be sweet! :) thanks mom & dad!

If the quiet becomes too much, I'd be glad to come to your house and make noise! This is the first summer I haven't had kids (to babysit, not my own), and I must admit I'm a bit lonely.

it is going to be fun for us old folks ... get some kid germs floating in the house. Dad is at this moment taking the mermaids to the cool pool ... i wonder what he'll make for supper?
