My beautiful husband and children got home this afternoon after being away at Lake Powell since Tuesday morning! It was very strange and quiet for the last 5 nights. I had some great me-time that I know I won't enjoy again for a very long time. At the same time my heart was broken every night when I got off the phone with my kids and husband and had to cry. Hormones, you know.
Anyway, some of the things I did while my family was on vacation are:
took long baths alone, slept in until 8 once and 8:30 another time ( after initially waking up at 6 to find myself alone and not needing to get anyone chocolate milk), went to the new Harry Potter movie with my mom, 13 yr old nephew and 12 year old brother(very good fun), went to Super WalMart alone where I was able to look at anything I wanted for however long I wanted and buy Tucker birthday presents without his knowledge, had a girl's night (I'll have to get pictures from Karen), got a pedicure (Tori kept saying I should), and did some good packing, cleaning, and nesting. By nesting I mean washing baby clothes and folding them, which was so fun and got me all excited, and I also set up the bassinet. Yay for babies!
