For the first time in forever...well maybe not FOREVER, but for the first time in too long...i have my house to myself for the night! My little monsters have all been dropped off in three different directions, and i have been home ALONE for the last couple of hours.
I could not decide what on earth to do with myself in the midst of all the peace and quiet...with no one making dishes for me to wash, or putting more rubbish in the rubbish bin, even though it is already overflowing but not bothering to take it out, or nagging at me, asking where some random item of clothing that they probably shoved under their bed is, or asking me what is for dinner, or PLAYING X BOX!!!
So i cleaned.
And now i am going to jump into my bed that has beautiful fresh sheets, in my wonderfully clean room...and sleep...at 7:41 on a Saturday night. It's official. I am OLD. I love it.
I am going to enjoy every second of my peaceful home, until i have to pick them all up again tomorrow. I might even wander out to the kitchen in the morning, to make my coffee...in my knickers! Like i used to always do, back in the days before i was silly enough to move close to all their friends, so they would never want to go to Nick's place.
I. Am. Loving. My. Empty. Home. Tonight. I think Nixon is too.
