Homecomings are Like....


The first time you spend the night at your new significant others house.....


You feel excited, anxious, nervous....and Confident...all at the same time....



There is your checklist....


breath mints....Check

painted toenails....Check

75% of body hair removed.....Check, Check....and check

cute outfit....that the rest of the world can see....Check

cute outfit...that only your significant other can see.....double check



It will be 23 hours and counting.....and this 77 day stint at single parenthood will officially be at an end....


I tell ya....I have to give mad props to those who do this thing....by themselves....every day....for LONG periods of time....you all have either A) lots of alchohol B) Lots of Therapy....or you are waiting in line to be sainted....


I think it might actually be a piece of cake.....except for the small insignificant fact that my son grows and changes each time we go through one of these.....Last winter....he was learning to crawl and sleep through the night....


This time...He learned to walk....become a one man demolition team....and mastered the art of toddler temper tantrum....


Just when I think I may have mastered this single parent thing.....Pooh throws a curve ball and whacks me right in the tush with it....


But 23 hours from now....I will again be part of a dual parent family....and holy crap...I will actually be able to go grocery shopping alone!!!!....now there is a concept!!!


It's so not about regaining that husband/wife relationship....wink wink....all I really care about is maneuvering my shopping cart through a store without little arms grabbing everything within reach!!!...



The excitement is building.....the butterflies are forming in the stomach....


22 hours and 50 minutes to go!!....now where's that gum....

Hi! Popping over from SITS to say hello. Sounds like a reunion with your husband?? Not sure - but sounds exciting! All the best.

Thanks for the sits welcome! I also am an oklahoman that is now a coloradoan. Hopefully I can call myself an oklahoman again someday soon. I miss it.

Woo! Hotness. I love reunions with Hubby. Not that we're ever apart for very long, but I get swoony when he comes home from work. In the rare instances we actually spend one whole day apart I'm ready to ditch the kids and jump all over him!

Have fun =)
