I am really glad that the kids have their normal activities this week.  If we were snowed in, or had to stay home due to sickness or something, I am sure that we would all have cabin fever, be watching WAY too much television, and ready to kill one another.

As it is, Ane and Tad are ready to kill one another, but that’s just their normal state of being (and it probably will be for the next several years).

So, I get home last night from Awanas, order Ane into her room to get ready for bed – she still had her reading homework to do, and we didn’t get to it before we left – and wait for me, change Rerun out of a poopy diaper and get him ready for bed, chase Tad down, strip him and get him in his pajamas and make him brush his teeth, stage an emergency search for Tad’s library book – which was eventually located behind his bed (of course!) – and stuff it in his backpack for school today, have Ane read to me and sign off the chapter in her reading log, order Tad to stay in bed and read while I nurse Rerun, then pop Rerun into his crib, read to both boys, turn off all the lights, and command the children to go to sleep.  Which, a half hour later, they did.

I still have to tidy up the kitchen, finish some more card prep for Saturday, turn the dryer back on, and the list goes on and on and on…

Then I check Facebook and see that the Webmaster has ordered room service for dinner, complete with cheesecake for dessert.

I’m thinking that I need to take a “business trip” myself.

Clearly, I need it.

Where should I go?  I’m headed for the deep end, but I’ve been there before.  Too crowded.  Any ideas?

    Go someplace that has a good spa at the hotel!

    Pick up a cheesecake today. After the kids are put to bed tonight, pretend room service just arrived, find a good book, & enjoy!

    Clearly I need to block my wife from such posts of Facebook to spare her

    When I get back, you go get your mani/pedi and order lunch in to the salon.

    Come to Morton, the grandparents will take the kids, and the aunties will pamper you.
