Something unexpected has happened in my little house.
Most of the family left yesterday for Oklahoma. Child #3 is going beach camping with family friends for a few days (fingers crossed for no bee incidents!).
All this means....
I am all alone in the house for FOUR WHOLE DAYS!
I cannot even remember the last time this happened.
Will I experience empty-nest syndrome?
N-O spells no!
I will clean my house. Once. I will turn off ESPN and the Disney channel and XBox.
Then, Dorothy the dog curled up at my side, I will rock gently in my favorite chair, and read JULIET, NAKED by Nick Hornby.*
I will experience quiet-uncluttered nest syndrome. :)
* I'm sure I'll do a lot more than read over the course of four days. But all will be done in peace and quiet.
