Ahhhh, no more PS3 playing in the background. No more "What's for lunch?" or "Do we have to go to the Y with you?" Oh yes, I enjoyed having the kids home and knowing they were safe from being frostbitten is a great and actually priceless thing but …but….my house is mine again!
A computer available when ever I want it.
Lunch made for one.
Laundry and dishes don't seem so bad doing them today (compared to other days and asking the kids to help and hearing groans and moans….Man, I am thinking I need to set up a chore list for the kiddos this year)
Going to the Y with out the usual question…."How long do we have to be here?"
Oh and the million dollar question I have heard a lot lately…."If I go can you buy me a treat?" or "If I (insert any chore around the house) can I have a treat?" Whose children are these any way? Thinking every thing revolves around a treat? ;- 0 (Oh, a certain cross country coach would not be happy with the thinking skills I have planted in these children) ;-(
