Ah, Can You Hear The Silence!

The Mommy just left with the MIL and the Helper. She's dropping them off 28 miles away at MIL's house. My mother-in-law was here this morning because she needed to visit our auto mechanic, her's is not that good. Her car will be with him for a a few days so on the Mommy's way to work she needed to bring her home. When preparing to leave our house my wonderful MIL asked if it would be okay if the Helper came with her... TO STAY OVERNIGHT! They'll be back Sunday for the Helper's birthday celebration.

Those people left, the baby's napping, the dogs are napping... I should be napping.

Or, do I frolic around my big empty house like Tom Cruise in Risky Business?

No, I think my big comfy chair and some Discovery Channel will do just fine, really too tired to read.

It's the sounds of silence that are killing me. Simon and Garfunkel were right! I'm so ungrateful!

Update: It's just not in me to do my rendition of Bob Seger... he'll be so grateful! I have decided to "prep" the ranch for this weekend's festivities, and yes, that includes vacuuming all the ceiling fan blades. I know I'm weak, but it has to get done... BABY CRYIN' -- VACUUM WHIRRING -- DOGS GOIN" NUTS -- NOW THAT'S MORE LIKE IT!!!

Dig out the tightie whities and bust your bust TomKat moves. Maybe even springboard your hyper body from the couch a la Oprah. It's been too long since I've danced in my underwear.

I meant to say bust your best Tom Cruise moves. You know, the Slackstress can't be bothered with copy editing these days. But she really is bothered with it anyway.

Enjoy it...it will all get you back in the end....Every time I get some peace and quiet, I have to pay for it somehow, someway...

Don't ya just love when someone ASKS to take the kids for the night? That is the best...guilt free solitude.

Long Island Dad said...

Slacktress - No worries on the editing - I get you!

Janet - I know, I careful, may somehow bite me in the ass.

Karly - Your sooooo right!

The kids overnight somewhere? That has NEVER happened. Hubby's parents don't do anything with our kids and my parents live 4 minutes away and have said, "some day". Sigh.

My son had a half a day today so I'm jelly belly.

As for the relaxation. I would so encourage you to do the underwear dancing thing but I write erotica and my mind goes to places. LMAO. j/k.

Have a nice relaxing time in the erie silence.

Oh, The Joys said...

My house next!

Long Island Dad said...

Joys - I can be hired out but I'm very pricey and high maintenance!

Long Island Dad said...

Angel - 4 minutes away and "Some Day" Oh No! If it wasn't for MIL once or twice a month I'd be babbling and drooling in a dark corner!

Long Island Dad said...

Angel P.S. - MIL has 13 grandchildren, although mine are the youngest, my wife's the baby of 5. Little kids are irresitable to a seasoned Irish Nana!

Terry said...

You are truly a glutton for punishment.. Stay At Home Dads would be ashamed ... How could you give up such a beautiful thing as a nap??

Angel said...

Hey Long Island Dad & Family!

I hope that the helper has a fantastic birthday party tomorrow! Enjoy your time together as a family! You made it the 8 day stretch!!!!

Long Island Dad said...

Thanks A - I'm on a full out cleaning jag now -- no rest for the weary! But we'll have a great time with our friends and fam. Thanks for the wishes! -C

Angel said...

Ahhhhh far too familiar... pre party full out cleaning jag! I'll be doing that in February for the boy. Yikes!

You are more than welcome.

And you're right, no rest for the weary *smile!
