Yesterday I packed up my baby and sent him to a big scary trailer with his grandma and aunt and cousin and a bunch of skateboarding teenagers. Remember how I really needed a break? Well my message was heard and he was whisked away to have a fun weekend of camping and fishing and maybe some broken bones or something when he tries a skateboard trick (yes, I worry).

I looked forward to a weekend which would not include the following in my vocabulary:

  • No
  • Don't touch that
  • Leave it
  • Wash your hands
  • Wash your face
  • Wipe your feet
  • Get your fingers out of your mouth
  • Stop eating that
  • No licking
  • Pick up your Hot Wheels
  • Put it away
  • Ear wax is not a garnish
...just to name a few.
After last night, I am sort of regretting my decision. The house was quiet, way too quiet. I haven't said a word since my friend dropped me off last night at 8:30pm so I am wondering if my voice actually works. Last night was rough. Not having that little body sneak into my bed and kick me repeatedly was just weird and by 2:30 I couldn't handle it anymore - I needed to be kicked!
I tried to get some more sleep, but it just wasn't happening so I decided to go on Twitter for a bit and then I heard a noise that sounded suspiciously like a burglar so I decided to stay awake until the sun came up at 6:30. The last time I stayed awake until the sun came up was the time I was at my grandma's house and I swear I saw Freddy Krueger under her bed...claw and all. You try sleeping after seeing that!
So it is now noon, I am still in my pyjamas underwear and thinking of getting into a hardcore game of Sims 3 to pass the time of being alone - until I hear a burglar and start hiding kitchen knives around the house.
PS - I was just thinking, if you are a burglar and you are reading this and you happen to know where I live, please do not come to burgle me today - I'm scared.

PPS - Burglars beware, I am now hiding knives.

Hello..this is my blog. I bought this fancy theme and I don't know what to write here just yet. Maybe one day remind me I have to write something inspiring here?


  1. Should you ever be left alone again, such pop us an email and we'd be happy to "cyber" kick ya...LOL

  2. It always weirds me out, too, when I work from home and go an entire day without saying anything out loud to anyone. Just so much silence, for a whole day. No wonder people get roommates and girlfriends and junk.
