Now that I am feeling semi-human, it is time to start taking my life back. Which means, it's time for me to clean the house the right way (sweeping, mopping, cleaning the counters, and vacuuming are beyond my husband). And to get the kids the hell out of the house. Poor Mason, he's been here since Sunday and only left the house to go get Jay from the grocery store and to go to Evan and Kenzie's swimming lessons (nothing to report there, btw, Bubble Invader was a no show (THANK GOD) and Double Butt kept Chubs and Shamu on lockdown).
Unfortunately, we are not rolling in cash so taking them out and about has to be free. Which means we are heading to the library for free books.
On Friday, my husband is leaving town to go head to Corvallis to visit his friend for the weekend. His first weekend away in our 8/9 years together. I did leave last year for 2 weeks of hell taking care my ex-friends daycare, but I am still trying to forget that. So this means I have to figure out a way to entertain myself overnight so I don't get all scared and call the cops over every little sound.
I think I found the perfect solution. Twilight and Sex Drive on dvd. Hells yeah. No Jay to make fun of my Edward. Oh, and sleeping pills. Because I am such a weenie I will wake up over every noise unless I am drugged up.
On Saturday, I am ditching the dog at my moms, and heading to Portland to stay with Melissa and her kids. I get to meet her new boyfriend, and then we are taking all of the kids to see Monsters vs. Aliens. And then we are going to eat bad food and watch absolutely stupid girly movies. Jay will meet me at her house on Sunday, and we'll all drive home together.
Then on Tuesday, me and my brood are heading to Friday Harbor in the San Juan Islands for a day with my cousin, Micah. He just told me there are 3 pods of whales in the area, so I am totally stoked. We have to leave around 7:30 in the morning to catch the ferry, and we'll get home around 7 that night. Which means, I need to pack breakfast to eat in the car, a picnic lunch, snacks, and dinner to eat in the car. I promised Jay I would spend zero money on the island for food, because it is pretty expensive up there. So I must make it all at home to keep it on the cheap. I may have to break that promise since they supposedly have a killer bakery.
I'm pretty sure I can get away with it if I bring back a delectable treat just for him. And give him sex. Because I can get away with murder if I give up sex.
