I remember when...
I was young, unmarried, and childless
I didn't have a care...
I could get out my car, and not have to wait, or tell someone to watch for cars.
I could come or go all I wanted, without having to check in, and could go anywhere I wanted.
I could sleep in on Saturday and Sunday's.
I could clean my house in an hour... top to bottom.
It would stay clean for about a week.
I only had to do a load of laundry a week, or could take everything to the dry cleaners and fluff n fold, and pay someone else to do it....
I didn't have to worry about anything or anyone...
I could shop all I wanted...
I could read all I wanted...
I could decide where I wanted to go on vacation based on my needs and desires.
I could take as long as I wanted in the shower, and no one would be there knocking on the door to ask me how long I was gonna be. There were no burning questions to be answered.
I didn't have to help anyone with homework.
I didn't HAVE to do anything.
If I didn't feel like cooking... I could go out or order in and get the spiciest stuff I wanted.
If I caught a cold, I was the only one getting it... it didn't cycle through an entire house for weeks on end.
My car was clean... all the time.
I could buy white carpet if I wanted to.
My purse didn't weigh 400 lbs, it wasn't filled with mini cars, lizards, DS games, PSP's and other people's cell phones.
My purse could be smaller.
I got the whole bed to myself.
No one snored.
No one hit the Snooze button 1,000 times a morning... unless it was ME!
I could watch all the chick flicks I wanted.
Nascar never existed for me.
My boobs didn't sag so low, I could scratch them around my knees.
My entire body wasn't a roadmap.
I didn't have grey hair.
I didn't have a worry in the world.
You know what?
I wouldn't go back to that for all the money in the world.
(well, maybe the boob thing, yeah)
Sounds kinda boring huh?
Just all the me, me, me, me....
Well, I promised myself I was gonna take a couple of "me" days, and I just booked them.
I booked the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach for 3 glorious days ALONE!
I am sooo excited.
I'm packing books, laptop, capri's, a few blouses, flip flops, undies, and maybe a cell phone.. I'm not sure.
Saundra is gonna find Saundra again.
I'm gonna get my groove back.
I need some swagger.
I love my chaotic, overfilled, cup runneth over, incredibly fantastic wife and mom life... but
a girl's gotta do , what a girl's gotta do.
I have to wait until after the I'm done with the stupid Snack Bar.
So... I booked July.
Ahhh... I can feel myself relaxing already...
