Yeah – that’s not me in the photo… but let’s pretend it is!
We’ve been all about the pool since my son Liam let it be known that he wasn’t having the beach. This week I took the kids there 3 times and would have gone today, but I have an afternoon play date to get ready for. Who knew a tornado would fly through my house and turn it upside down hours before friends are due to arrive. DAMN WEATHER!
Yesterday, Bill and I took the kids for some water fun and everything was fairly manageable. He ran into a friend and I was sitting there alone watching the kids. It was quiet and easy and awesome. Then my eyes caught a glimpse of the adult section – you know, the place that I haven’t even WALKED OVER TO because I am never without my children.
Well, I stood up and told Bill I needed 20 minutes. Walked over to the cushioned lounge chairs … and the quiet and I relaxed. Holy Moses – that’s what being single feels like! I forgot!!! It’s been so long.
From now on, I’m going to the pool by myself every Friday! DONE. DONE. and DONE. Bill can have a day during the week to enjoy the lap pool sans kids as well. We just have to work out this schedule.
Magic on Earth.
I even read a BOOOOOOOOOOOKKKKKKKKKKKK. Remember those? My cousin Erica gave me ‘Are You There Vodka? It’s me Chelsea” YEARS ago and I haven’t had a chance to read it until yesterday.
