This is the time of year that my husband has to work a lot of hours. I don’t mind so much because I totally guard my time alone. Always have. I’ve heard people say that’s unhealthy, but I beg to differ. I think it depends on the individual. And for me? I think it’s totally healthy. If I don’t have that space I get really pissy.
My daughter has a great friend who lives at our place on the weekends. Sometimes she lives with us during the week as well. I don’t mind. I only have one daughter and my son is in college so he’s not around anymore. When the girls are together I really don’t know that they’re here. They hang out and play the PS3, they watch Netflix and geek on Facebook. It’s all good.
Last night it was just us 3 chicks for quite awhile so I rummaged the cabinets to see what I could fix. The rain has been totally insane for the last 24 hours or so and to top that off, it feels like freaking winter out. Ridiculous! In other words I did not want to go out. Luckily we had most everything we needed to whip up a decent Thai spread. Rice noodles, chicken, onions, tomatoes, cilantro, peanut and teriyaki sauce and red wine for me. We jammed out to some Traffic, the Kinks and Van Morrison. What a fun night!
The party was in celebration of my FIRST FREE weekend after I quit cleaning. I have had places to be, things to do or been sick since I quit! And what am I doing on my free weekend? Besides eating Thai food and drinking wine, I’m prepping the bathroom for a paint revamp. Yep. We are leaving the freshwather fish border and mossy green paint behind. Going soft, pale blue with black accents. Lauren will have a new background for all of her Facebook shots that she takes in there since the light is great.
I’m covered in Kilz. Later.
