Sometimes I Forget

On Monday, Jeff had to make a quick trip to Great Falls and he offered to take Caderyn so his parents could see their favorite grandson. I didn't put up too much of a fight, I'm super busy this week and had played the single parent role Sunday/Monday while Jeff had gone to Butte for work.
I'd forgotten what it was like to not really have a whole heck of a lot of responsibilities.

  • I got a two and a half hour massage. AMAZING. 
  • I came home and picked up a little bit- and it stayed clean. 
  • I folded laundry and let it sit on the floor for an hour before I put it away- and it stayed folded.
  • I was able to go to the bathroom without company- Caderyn refuses to let Jeff or I go potty alone.
  • I was able to take a 30 minute shower without hurrying
  • I was able to eat dinner before 8:00 p.m.
  • I was able to call my mom and talk to her without cutting her off because of something I had to do-For once I didn't have to do anything. 
  • I was able to lay on the couch for two hours and watch 30 Rock reruns without feeling guilty. 
  • I got up the next morning without feeling exhausted. 
  • I took my time getting ready and read the paper and drank my coffee without getting up once- Caderyn usually needs to be continually redirected a bazillion times throughout the oh 5-10 minutes I get to read the paper, eat breakfast and drink my coffee.
  • I made it to work on time- I was even early
Oh, how my life has changed. It's funny how some things I took for granted only two years ago are now a hot commodity in my life when they come along. I did miss my boys very much and am so glad to have them back (even if Caderyn is going through a screaming phase again- Lordy Lordy), but it was a fun little mini-vacation while it lasted.
