My husband and kids left this morning to go visit his dysfunctional parents in Arizona until thursday nite. Somehow I got my a** out of this trip...the dog is only 8 months old and needs me, I have to work (I only work 12 hours a week and my boss could care less), why spend the extra money on a ticket, blah blah blah. DH fell for it!!! He also knows I have to be on intravenous valium when I see his family b/c they're such a mess. This is the first time in 10 years (since my twins were born) that I have been alone. It's soooo peaceful. No fighting children, no piles of laundry, girls nites out tomorrow and Wednesday. I'm totally having some wine later to toast my temporary sanity!!
