Matt's mom came and took our kids away. They are out of school all week, so she whisked them up to Chattanooga this morning to be with her for a few days. Matt and I will head up there on Wednesday, but for now, we are childless.
My house is giant. And quiet.
It seems limitless, the things you can do when you don't have kids at home. I could nap. Think deeply. Think shallowly. Watch the leaves fall while eating toast. Have some part of my body professionally groomed. Assemble a vacuum cleaner.
So far today I've accomplished three of those.
But the possibilities are all enticing, no?
And tonight, yay! Matt and I are going downtown to see the Hawks-Celtics game. Matt is a big Celtics fan, though he doesn't often get to see a live game. He was reluctant to spend money on decent seats, but I knew how much he would enjoy it, and he basically never buys himself anything, so I pitched a fit until he agreed to go. And I get to go too. I think it will be fun and a different thing from any other date night we've had.
I have rarely been to a professional sporting event, but I am ready to enliven it for everyone with my color commentary.
Kidding! So I don't know much about the baskets-ball, but I have new boots to wear and I like to go places at night.
I hope you are having a nice pre-holiday Monday.
You have my love,
