Single and childless for a week, on Day 2 Momma...

... put herself to bed at 1 am, only to wake up at 4, 5, and 6 due to the soon-to-be-sold-to-a-cat-eating-family-cats.
... added her husband's sweater to the must-sleep-with crew (Horse and the tractor didn't mind).
... talked to her man at 7 am and discovered her baby coughed so hard last night he barfed. Twice. Second time he tried to catch it - and hey! was successful!
... was able to go back to sleep until 11 - ELEVEN AM!
... went for a leisurely walk in the city park and the weather was so breathtakingly gorgeous she cried because Levi wasn't there.
... ate fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, and fried artichoke hearts and spinach for breakfast with black coffee at 12:30.
... killed brain cells with afternoon TV consisting of Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations, Everyday Italian, Life in the Fab Lane, and My Super Sweet 16.
... showered at 3 o'clock, was tired from the exertion and sat back down on the couch for another hour.
... gussied up and met friends for a happy hour... or two.
... was home by 7:30 and back on the couch, bleary, red, scratchy eyes and all.
... got a hoarse-y, sweet message from my baby that consisted of Anthony whispering, "Say HI to Mama!" in the background over and over and then "Night-night!" blurted into the phone by his unamused charge.
... watched everything in the DVR queue before eating more leftovers for dinner at 11 pm.

(Seriously. Have I died and gone to heaven?? Someone better pinch me.)


  1. Man, not a bad day. I could do one of those. Easily. Although, I would probably cry a little too without someone to share it with in some way.

    Thanks for your thoughtful comment on my "hard to write" post. I appreciate it.

  2. I love it! What a great day! Even the part where you cried for Levi -- no matter how awesome the experience, sharing it with our furry friends can always take it up a notch.

  3. Taking advantage of it girl... i like it! Totally recharging yourself.

    And can you imagine how insanely happy you'll be to see them when they're back?!

  4. ahhh, you needed this day. i'm smiling over here for you and am looking forward to hearing more!

  5. I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying yourself. I think you've earned it!

  6. it looks like you took a drive to "the country". i hope you didn't get lost!

  7. That sounds like a great day. I would of LOVED that day. (I've never tried fried green tomatoes. Must give them a try one day.)
