The stars have aligned and I have suddenly found myself with a little more than 24 total hours to myself! My dad works in the temple on Thursdays and comes to see the girls when he is finished. We are planning a trip to Wyoming this weekend to get things out of storage (ie my mom and dad's crawlspace). Most of our baby stuff is there, and we have put it off long enough. My mom has school off today and tomorrow for their spring break. Is anyone seeing the alignment?
My dad offered Christine the chance to ride home with him today. She loves to be at my parents' house; it is everything that ours is not. They have cable and ample room to run. Christine asks nearly every time that we are there if we can live there. Anyway, I told her she had to call Grandma and ask her first. Grandma thought it was a wonderful idea (at least that's what she told Christine). Emma was napping during all of this and it was decided that she would go too. She loves Grandma's house as well. Her favorite game is to run from one end of the house to the other and then do it again.
I got the girls packed up and as things were being put into the car, the dad of the little girl I watch came for pick-up. He said he is taking tomorrow off and won't go in even if work calls - he has to do some on-call work sometimes. So I am child-free until tomorrow evening when we get to Wyoming.
There are plenty of things that I should be doing, but I can't motivate myself to start any of them right now. Maybe tomorrow, although I'm not making any promises. I haven't been truly bored for a long time. Maybe my goal for tomorrow will be to see how bored I can get, probably not though. I promise you this, I will not be up at my normal 6:00 (or earlier if Emma has her way). Sleeping in is my #1 goal.
