the day I will be left alone...

Today my handsome two (Mr. Mar and Mr18) will be leaving on an all-male sailing trip, not quite America's Cup but they will do their best, I am sure. To be fair I have to tell they asked me first if I wanted to come along before they decided on the all-guy thing and invited the rest of the crew. They have been working hard over the weekend getting the grocery shopping done, packing, reviewing what they need on board, even sailed for an hour or two just to make sure everything is working ok.
They will be gone for about a week. A WEEK!!! I will have the house to myself, I will be the queen of the remote control, I can watch all those romantic movies which make me cry like a crazy teenager and nobody will say a word to me, everything will be in place (meaning there where I place them!) and nobody will misplace them where I cannot find them, I can wax my upperlip and my underarms without hearing complains about the smelly thing on the stove, I will not have red meat nor a single bottle of beer in the fridge, but diet coke and champagne. I can listen to James Taylor and Rod Stewart with his "All American Songbooks" and no teenager will say I am boring . I can blog in my pj's ( well, I do that all the time anyways...wooops!). The possibilities are endless!
I will be a free woman!
And I will love it for about two days. And then I will start feeling lonely and left out so I will have to go out and be sociable in order to have company and someone to talk to. And will be counting down the days until they are back and take over the remote control, fill my fridge with beverages, smelly cheeses and sausages I don't like, leave their clothes in inappropiate places, and I will wish they would go away on vacation again ...
Why are we never happy?

  3. There are times in our life that we really need to have time just for ourselves and this is your chance but I am not sure too if a week will be ok. For me it won't.

    Take Care!

  11. hola sis! I'm getting alone too this week. Mademoiselle D is going on vacation tomorrow (tuesday) with her dad for 3 weeks! But I'm glad for her, she is always so happy waiting for the time to be with him.
    And you are totally right... after a few days you feel alone and need some company.
    Well, stay at home because I'll call you anytime!

  17. I know you'll enjoy your time for at least 2 1/2 days.

    Someday I hope to have a MrM and teen(gasp!) to make me appreciate the alone times. For now, I'll count on my parents/siblings for that.
