Finally, I think to myself.
Black Friday they call it.
They couldn't be more wrong.
It's Finally Friday for me.
It's the day after Thanksgiving where...if I'm lucky...SM takes off for a long weekend up in Ohio.
And I get to be alone.
Alone with my thoughts.
Alone with the TV remote.
Alone to fall asleep at 7pm and get up at 3am.
I do that anyway whether SM is here or not. (sigh...freakin hormones)
Where was I?
Well, almost alone.
I do have 3 pairs of doggie eyes following me everywhere I go.
I tried to push SM out the door on Tuesday but he had things to do.
How about Wednesday early, Hm?
SM wanted to get new front tires on the minivan before he left for Ohio.
How about after Thanksgiving dinner? He's done that plenty of times before.
Oh, that's right. We're heading over to his Sister's around 4pm Thanksgiving day.
So Friday it is.
Finally! It's Friday! Yeah me!
I have three...count em...THREE whole days to my lonesome.
But I'll be busy, trust me. I have a long list of to do's that need doing. Everything from picking up frozen dog crap in the yard to cleaning carpets. From decorating for Christmas to giving Scooter a haircut.
So while I get to revel in the silence that is "just me" this weekend, SM gets to eat, drink and be merry with his friends and family.
It's a win-win for both of us don'tcha think?
