When the Boys are Away the Mom will.......

do a whole heck of a lot of nothing! Pretty pathetic eh? But in my defense all of the boys aren't away. Big and Middle are spending the weekend at my parents. Thank goodness for them! They love spending time with my boys as much as my boys love spending time with them. But that still leaves us with the little one. And to be honest, he is the most challenging of them all.

Take yesterday for instance. After I dropped Big and Middle off the Little one and I went to meet hubby for lunch. We decided to meet at a restaurant that we frequented often back in the day that I had a job, ya know, pre babies? So of course the place is packed with people on their lunch break and the little one was the only kid in the place. And this boy was in rare form. He was excited and wound up and squealing like a banshee. And I just wanted to crawl under the table. Let me tell you, I was ready for a drink exhausted by the time we were done eating. So when hubs proposed we go out to lunch today I ran shrieking from our home put a damper on that real quick.

Instead we had a nice little squabble over who was more miserable. That was fun. We kissed and made up and went to pick up an ice cream maker from a woman on freecycle. Now don't get me wrong. I'm very grateful that she was giving me a 4 year old brand new ice cream maker, but she could have kept the cobwebs. Trust me, I have plenty.

Tonight we chowed down on some yummy Thai food and washed it down with a few beers. Had a Wii bit of fun. And I've spent the evening perusing through the BlogHerNot '08 tutorials What a riot! Check 'em out if you're bored. You'll be hooked!

So sure, I'm a little envious when I think of all the great times some of my favorite reads are having at BlogHer. And I dream of a time when maybe I'd go and have a blast with her and her as my roommates. But I guess instead I'll just enjoy the few minutes of quiet I can get and keep giggling to myself over the BlogHerNot posts.
