My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

You hear that?

Yeah - me either. Spring Break is officially over. O.V.E.R.

Thank Heavens.

Everybody went away today - kids to school, WxMan to work, and I am blissfully alone.

You know, I don't realize how much I crave my quiet until I am denied any for a while. Like 10 days... (Not that I was counting or anything.)

Now don't get me wrong, I would throw myself in front of a burning train to protect my family. Without hesitation! But it is sometimes very nice to know that I am not going to be having to do any pre-teen negotiations for a while (Holy hormones, Batman!) or pick up any Hubby clutter or fix anybody other than me lunch today.


That's nice.

And the house will stay picked up for six straight hours. Golden, that.

Now if it just wouldn't snow tonight.... But that's what I get for putting the boots away. Dang it.
