Well, things are back to normal around here. Temperatures are typical for Spring again, sunny and cool, which is nice. Guinness is back home with his family and happy to be amongst his people again.
I’ve lost a bit of the momentum I had last week and haven’t made much more progress on the Spring cleaning/decluttering. I’m good with that though because I did get quite the head start.
Hubby and Daughter have their tickets for next month’s Comic Con and both are very excited. It’s the first time such a high profile exhibition has come to our city and some pretty big names will be visiting. Daughter is most keen to meet Patrick Stewart from Star Trek, though I think secretly Hubby is even more so.
The convention is the weekend of May 12-13 which happens to coincide with both our Anniversary (12) and Mother’s Day (13). I might have been upset about this back when we were first married but now I’m actually excited. Even though the event takes place in our city, Hubby and Daughter are going to get a hotel room close to the convention centre and make a weekend out it.
For me that means 1 night and 2 whole days to MYSELF. And for that, I’m not at all bothered about postponing any celebrations for those special days. Of course, I was invited to go along with them but it’s really not my cup of tea and it allows me some much needed JUST ME time.
The big question of course is WHAT WILL I DO with this precious time? You know, I haven’t the first clue.
I could list all the typical standbys; have a bubble bath, invite some friends over and have girl time, go out to a movie or a concert, read a book (undisturbed), do something crafty etc…
I could list all the typical NOT DOINGs as well; house/yard work, laundry, cooking, bookkeeping etc…
But since this is a very atypical experience for me, the last time I had such the luxury was three years ago, I’ve thought maybe I should try doing something really out of my comfort zone, something that will remind me of my individuality (separateness from wife and mom), something COOL.
Any ideas? Because seriously, I am a total loss. Good thing I have three weeks to figure it out. 😀
