I wanted to cry... I was glad that I-Dude cried quietly on the way back because I didn't want to cry in front of my FIL. He'll understand of course, but it was just so surreal that it hurt. I remember being the last one to get in the truck. J-Pony was entertained by her cousin, T, and my SIL, K, so I knew she was fine.
Then the kiddos stayed at my SIL's for the night and I find myself alone in the room we were staying at, quiet and peaceful. I knew the kids were having fun and M&D- ILs were enjoying their evening. Mom got me a book,
and it's such a good read! Of course, I didn't get to finish it though I wanted to. I was able to take a shower in peace and enjoy a bag of Hawaiian "Luau BBQ" Potato Chips, compliments of M&D.
I loved my day alone; but I also felt alone... Like I was missing something. Four somethings, precious somethings... I couldn't wait to fall asleep (yes, I had a hard time though it was quiet) so that Friday could come soon.
