It turns out there’s one week and one day between the end of summer camp and the beginning of school. That one day being next Monday, because the school district inexplicably decided that Tuesday would be the optimum day to begin classes.
Since I use my vacation time for doctor’s appointments and days off over the holidays, Hubs decided to take this week-and-a-day off from work. But then he got to thinking that it would be a great time to take a 3-day road trip to Houston, where they could visit the beach and the aquarium.
And I thought, YES, that is a FABULOUS idea!! Because, of course, the thought of 3 days of pure quiet is like a dream come true, since I haven’t had pure quiet in more than 7 years. Sure, I would be a little sad to miss it, but it’s great father-son bonding time.
And so on Sunday, off they went on their trip. And off I went back to bed, where I stayed all day, reading and watching TV in blissful, wonderful QUIET.
Hubs took the iPad with him, so Connor could play games and watch videos during the drive. And since it has Facetime installed, they could call me on my iPhone at night. The app is awesome since it gives a visual along with the auditory of speaking to someone.
That evening, I got my phone call from the boys.
And then all of a sudden Hubs was tired and they had to go. Something about “STOP LICKING THE iPAD!!” I don’t know. But I cozied back up in bed and went back to watching the Real Housewives of New Jersey and eating ice cream.
I’m going to owe Hubs big time when he gets back. Big time. But all the quiet time I’ve had? It will be worth every last blow job.
Yeah, I said that.
