While this could easily be about the proliferation of winter black birds that have inundated my neighbourhood a la Alfred Hitchcock, instead it's about my kids
And the fact that niether of them will be home this weekend
. My daughter, back at her dorm since 2 January stopped by for two days during the week, so she's back in the city. My son, who commutes to school is going snowboarding with friends for the weekend, leaving in 5 hours!
This leaves the entire house from Friday morning till Sunday evening for Lou and I alone alone alone alone! Keep in mind, these are big kids, 21 and 18 and usually galavanting about with their own krewe...but you never really know when they are going to show up. If I make a romantic candlelight dinner (and I do, every weekend) one or both will show up mid flicker looking around like starving pups.
I love them dearly and always want them around, but godonacrutch, they always seem to be around!! We're all very close, this peyton place of a family I have, but a bit of space is good, too, yes?
I'm getting some space this weekend.
Lassiez le bonne temps roule!!!!
What would you do?????
