I asked someone on a blog the other day what "Just the two of us at home" felt like!
And another girl thought Stew and I must have had some of that BEFORE we got Brylee and Griffin!
Ahhh... NOPE. When we took on Brylee and Griffin we still had two of our sons living at home, aged 10 and 12...
AND to cap it off, when I met Stew, I already had 4 children from my first marriage.... so Stew and I have never had any JUST US time! ****Unless you count 3 weeks we spent in Singapore back in 1997?**** We didn't even get a HONEYMOON. Bit hard to book a 'Honeymoon Suite' with a double bed, four singles and a bassinette eh? *sniff*
I am sure OUR TIME will come... in about 10 (?) years! ha ha ha.
Today I'm going to give my new sewing machine foot a try.... and also practise 'free motion' sewing, cos I suck at that!
So.. it has finally happened, after 4 months:
The kids had cross-country running at school today. Brylee has come home without her sports shorts.... if they are not found they will be the 3rd pair to have gone 'missing' at school since we moved here 18 months ago. I am LIVID.... there is NO WAY I am buying another pair. NO WAY. I am so over this shit. The school expects them to wear 'special' clothes for sports... I name them really, really well... and they still get stolen? FUCK, BUGGER, DAMN AND BLAST. (OOOOO wash my mouth out with soap!)
I have had a quiet afternoon... just doing odd jobs around the house. I've got a beef casserole in the crock pot... so dinner is 90% done. Awesome.
ONWARD.... and I'm warm now! socks coming off....
End of Day: Dinner was really nice... I even had about a quarter of a pototoe! It was in the stew! Going to spend some time with me man now. nite nite.
