First sleepover away means night alone!
My daughter is sleeping over at a friend’s house for the first time tonight. It was a little last minute after a wonderful day with friends at a “fun”draiser for a local group that helps out families with chronically ill children. She went to the friend’s house after hanging out with her at the fundraiser and they hatched a plan for a sleepover and the friend’s mom said yes. In addition, I hung out and chatted with her mom and had dinner with her family before leaving to come home to a night alone! My hubby is traveling. So, it is just me, the dog and the cat. Well, and the neighbor’s cat (I guess you could say our cat is having a sleepover over here). A quiet night. I’ve picked up the living room and vacuumed in preparation to lay down a new rug I got last week that will hopefully look nice and cover more of our dirty, dirty carpet. Maybe I’ll accomplish some other things. But, maybe, I will just go to bed.
So, that’s it. It was an unusually social day that I very much enjoyed. And tomorrow I’m going to a BBQ at a friend’s house for her birthday where there will be other kids for Bean to play with as well. So, overall it is a social weekend for us. A nice change of pace after the past few weekends of preparing for hospital and then post-hospital hangover.
