Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Free at last

All day I looked forward to taking the kiddos to my folks' house, so I could have some peace and quiet.

So, you know what I did when I dropped them off? Yep, you guessed it. I cried.

Why is it that they get on my nerves so bad that I think about committing harey-carey (Hey Steve!, wait, wrong Harry), but as soon as I drop them off, I miss them so much my heart breaks?

AoD and I are going to eat at Twin Peaks (his new favorite restaurant, I wonder why?) and then we'll come back and watch The 4400 before heading out to the $1 show to see The Benchwarmers.

I figure we deserve some "us" time before the road trip with the kids. Plus, my mom is helping me out by watching the kids while I have some business meetings tomorrow. She volunteered, which I don't undrstand after having my hellion nephews for two weeks.

    Glad he enjoyed it. We wound up not going to see the movie so I could get most of my big airport project done. Now, I'm through with the first draft minus some stats, etc. that I will collect tomorrow - hopefully. Thank goodness.

    She volunteered because she had our nephews. She wants some sweet kid time.

    LOL, isn't the way it always is. You want time away from them and then miss them when they are gone. It works that way with husbands too lol!
