Haiku Friday

Haiku Friday

Graduate school looms,
Will they accept me? Who knows!
Forever waiting

Next week, no kids home
Vacation with grandparents
Realaxation time

Next week will be bliss
February Vacation!
Kids gone to Vermont

I will miss them, yes
But kids will be loved much more
After a week gone

We will eat seafood
Stinky cheese and good wine. Yeah!
Foods for only two

Oh yes, you heard right. My wonderful parents are taking the kids away to Vermont for an entire week for their February vacation. Come Sunday they'll be on their way to a week of skiing with their cousins and being spoiled rotten by Grandma and Pappa.

And GH and I? Oh, we'll be busy. Busy watching adult shows on the living room television. Busy eating delicious foods the kids won't touch. Busy working on crafts undisturbed. Busy cleaning the house only once- and enjoying it staying that way for an entire week. Busy listening to the sounds of a silent house, no bikering, no whining, no begging.

And yes, busy missing the kids. I'm sure a week apart will do us all good, and we'll all love each other all the more when the week is over. That's the theory anyways...

I hope all goes well with the application and you receive good news soon. Enjoy your “vacation” and all the “two-some” things you can do with the kiddos gone.
Hugs and blessings,
