I have got to change something before I lose what little is left of my mind.  I’ve left the house exactly twice in the last two weeks without children in tow.  Prior to that was Margo and I’s quick trip to Strawberry Chapel.  Yes, that’s it.  I haven’t even been able to escape to the grocery store alone and well, that’s just sad.

I need some time out and alone before I end up on the news.  A couple hours away from Mr. I’m Cutting Four Teeth Just as I Decide to Establish My Independent Nature would probably do a world of good.  When I’m worn out from the boys’ antics my tendency is to close rank and not leave the house with them, so aside from errands for absolute necessities, none of us have left the house in the past week.

I’m looking forward to Sunday evening, but I think something else needs to open up, fast.

I’m also out of books, so we’re reaching critical mass here folks, critical mass.

Ignore any news blurbs about crazy women in Moncks Corner, it simply wasn’t me.

Take them to the park…it makes them take a great nap afterwards too. Or you can ship the kids over to me, hehehe:)

You could always just take them out back and have them play avoid the flying golf balls, sorry my humor is stail, I have been hainging around Todd for much too long.

I’ll happily take a “me” couple of hours. I just need to get to the bookstore or library and maybe sit somewhere someone will bring me something tasty to eat.

Take the boys with you to the library on the condition they remain silent (heh – ya right) and if they’re quiet they can have a tasty treat with you afterwards.

Isn’t it “Take Your Kids to Work Day” yet?

I escaped last night for a bit. I have a couple books, so sanity will soon prevail.

#7 Margo on 04.19.07 at 12:20 am

yea for sanity!! can you pass some of that on over to me?

#8 Heather on 04.19.07 at 2:01 am

Don’t you already have a ton of my books?

#9 Margo on 04.19.07 at 5:30 pm

Yep, as a matter of fact I dropped one into the bottom of a bath full of water last night…so much for sanity. There’s still hope, it’s drying out on the back steps right now.
