Hubbo and The Girl are away this week. They left for Mexico last weekend and will be home Wednesday or Thursday. While they are building a house and doing good deeds, I've been wasting away here at home.
I had grand plans for my "vacation." Clean the house. Really clean the house. Sew curtains. Hang pictures. Work on the wedding album. Etc.
I did sweep and dust the house - moving all the furniture I could. I did the dishes. I will take out the trash and recycling tomorrow. I found the sewing machine under 18 piles of crap.
I don't think I'll finish the list. But that's OK. I'm still sort of on vacation for the next 8 weeks or so.
Being alone has been nice. No one makes a mess right after you finish cleaning (unless it's you, and that's OK). No one whines that they're "bored" (again, unless it's you). There is no one to be frustrated with for not doing something unless it's you again (and again, that's OK).
But it can lead to one's demise. Like having no one to talk to but the dogs and cats, and while they're great listeners, they don't really care about why there were 8 police cars at the end of your street on Sunday. They just want to bark at the policemen. And while they might miss their dad (the grass is getting a bit high), they don't care who feeds them, so long as they get fed. And everyone has enjoyed that extra half of the bed.
I found myself having a debate with Miles over what to have for dinner (me, not him). And then I found myself singing about my dinner. "Nacho, nacho man. I want to be a nacho man." Perhaps it's time for Hubbo to come home. Someone needs to save me from myself.
Since I'm on "vacation" this yarn totally doesn't count in the stash. And, better yet, I can leave it sitting out on the table without anyone giving me grief about buying more yarn. I just have to remember to put it away before he gets home. And come up with a good story for where it came from when he sees me knitting with it. Suggestions?
