My turn to write something. Kinda.

I haven't actually written anything for almost a week. This is actually good because I think my brain is broken right now and I keep thinking of potential topics to write about but then I never actually make it past the title. I have about 3 posts that I've started that are titles only; I'll probably never get around to finishing them.

So, on Thursday the 4 of us are packing up and heading up to Lake Tahoe for a few days. We're staying in a rental house with hubs' sister and her family, and his mom. I'm, um... not exactly looking forward to it. The boys will have a great time in the snow, but, um.... well... it probably won't be that much fun for me. It's a long story.

I'm actually flying back to Berkeley on Sunday, because I have to run payroll for one of my clients on Monday, but the boys will be staying behind until Tuesday. That's right, I'm going to be all alone in my house for 2 days. This is like my dream come true. I have never spent a night alone in this house for the 10+ years we've lived here, and now I get 2 in a row! You might be worried that I will be lonely, but I assure you... I will not be. I just have to make it past the 3 days in Tahoe first. I'm worried about Child 1, though, he doesn't do so well with change like this and 5 days away from home is longer than anything he's ever done. And I won't even be there for the end of it. I hope he's okay.

Anyway, I have one Dive Bar post waiting in the queue, which I will probably post tomorrow, and then I don't have any idea if there's even an internet connection where we're going. Just thinking about it makes me all cold and clammy. At least I'll have my trusty Blackberry. Assuming I get service, of course.

I'm scared.

You'll be fine. The 3 days will fly by then you get some great alone time. <--- How was that for wishful thinking? Did you buy it? I hope not because, if I were you, I would start drinking now. Heavily and stupidly. Just saying.

Being kinda isolated in a house with in-laws? What's not fun about that? Sorry...did my twitch show when I said that? I would pack major amounts of alcohol and chocolate in my suitcase. I'll be thinking of you!

Good to see you writing again, have a very happy holiday!

Two days alone? In the house by yourself? Sounds like the holidays are coming early for you!

I would SO like to find a couple of those under my tree this year. Enjoy!

Sometimes a day or two by yourself is the best medicine! Have fun!

Christmas with my in-laws isn't something I would jump at, good luck! Hope you enjoy your couple of days on your own, even though I know you will miss the others. See you on twitter! Happy Christmas. Jen

No Internet service???? The horror!!!

JennieB said...

I'm thinking about whether I would actually make that deal - 3 days with my inlaws for 2 days all alone. It's a tough call. Good luck!

I call bullshit on the never spent a night alone in the house assertion. There was a time, before child2 arrived, that I used to go with child1 to visit our nameless ethanol-aficionado friend and his firstborn. There were a few overnight stays back then. Remember?

jillsmo said...

Uh. I don't remember, actually, but that doesn't mean you're wrong. Sir.

"ethanol-aficionado friend"

heh heh heh
