Not having fun at all...

Here is what I have done since my boys have been gone....other than miss them terribly!

Had a girls night out with my little 14 year old neice, saw Mamma Mia! for the 3rd time, watched 3 movies, that were bonafide chick flicks....didn't cook dinner, went shopping, layed out in the sun.....stayed up late and slept in....


I hate it....with the exception of spending time and girl talking with my neice, I walk around not knowing what to do, I mean, don't get me wrong...I have plenty to do...I could hang some stuff on the wall, but the frog is the expert at that....I could read....but it's too quiet as it is...I have danced around the house and sang Abba songs at the the top of my lungs...but that is only fun for a little bit....I MISSSS MY BOYS....WAAAAAAAAA! It's too quiet, I miss my cuddles with all of them, I miss laughing with them....I miss them.....:(:(

I have to work Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, then I am off to the train station on Saturday, I won't get to them until Saturday night....tooo long! Seriously the day I thought this would be wonderful to have a full week without all three of them....I should have realized they are my world...without them for a week, suddenly it's quiet, boring, no one to take care of...I hate it!

Okay enough complaining! It will go quick, I am talking to them like a few times a day...they are telling me that the water is 59 degrees, okay after this longer will I crave lobster rolls and lobster for dinner every night...I guess I should have figured it out after maine...that if there are lobsters in the ocean it must be cold....I really can't wait to join them though...they said they have seen groups of seals nearby...harbour seals....judging by the water temp, I bet they are on vacation too!

They rented bikes, I am not sure if they are kidding, but they said they will get me the pink tricycle with the big basket to carry our beach just never know with those guys...they are tricksters first:) although I bet with a tricycle, the seat will be comfy:)

This week, I am going to see the Producers and beauty and the beast and lots of work....being on my own like this makes me realize...i could never be without my kids and my frog...i would have nothing at all to do....i can't even think about cook for just myself seems so unsatisfying....blech, i don't like to be on my own...that is for sure!

On another note, the lawyer stuff seems to be actually moving along...i can't believe it...I was teasing the frog and telling him that he better not find a cape cod replacement...and he said something like..."well you know the best way to keep the girls away from me" and I'm like what, shave your head, or dress you badly?...and he points to his ring finger...I was I was going to slip my Opa's old wedding band that I have, just to be his sleep, but of course I forgot:)

Well goodnight for's just me and the dog....quiet...tooo quiet...and creepy alone in the house....boy, i'll never do this time i'm going for 2 weeks too!!!!

Cape Cod here they come...I'll be there in one week!

The kids and frog are off to Cape cod for two weeks..I will join them next week!

It was a bit of a stressful start, last night while we were packing and trying to get the soft roof rack on top of the frogs little tiny car, almost a cooper, but not quite...the guy from the camping store said it would fit on his car...well we were stupid to actually believe it and not check for sure....IT DID NOT FIT....okay plan B....leave a couple kids home?...plan C...take my mini van....okay seems reasonable enough...well the little car is a stick and I am not insured, so then there is the problem of how, next Saturday will I drive all the way to Cape Cod???

It was just crazy...each option was getting worse and rent a car for me, would have been over $2.20 PER mile....for a one use a car and drop it off the next day, it was almost $ I checked the train...although not completely efficient like in Europe...they can pick me up in Providence, RI and its' a little over $ that is the plan, I packed everything up with them, they drove the mini van and I get to NOT have to drive 7 hours bymyself!! A little angel is watching over me all the time:) I'm soo lucky! NOW I JUST HAVE TO FIND MY PETITE ANGLAISE BOOK THAT HAS BEEN PACKED UP!!!!

So this week for me will be "oh so quiet"...but exciting...well exciting for me people, I don't get out that often....I'm going out tomorrow with my neice, who will be moving away for the school year, so we are having a real bonafide girls night out....either sushi or french food, I will let her decide:) then off to a movie....MAMMA MIA! for the 2nd time........I LOVE THAT MOVIE!!!!! And then on Tuesday I have an interview with a new girl...OMG, I have not been blogging here very much because I have been consumed with my other work blog....oh yea and consumed with work:) which is a good thing! Here you can visit it and feel free to leave me comments....I NEVER get any there...real bloggers aren't really visiting's more of a marketing thing....which honestly, WOW, if you have a business, write all about works sooo well!!! okay back to my itinerary....Tuesday I have a play to see...the Producers...can't wait...Wednesday dinner with the girls from work hopefully, Thursday another play...(I think I'm in heaven) that one is Beauty and the beast...Friday pack my little bag...and leave for the train station bright and early on Saturday...although I may try to leave early...friday..who knows....

Everything else is hunky dorey....I do believe I will be divorced very soon...prayers please, it's only been 5 years!! In August it will be 4 years for the frog and I:) Who knows, maybe there will be a wedding soon:)

Life is flying by, the kids are growing like weeds...Pickles is growing weeds under his armpit, we lost count last year, but he has a forest of hairs under there;) only a few scraped knees and tick bite, but no lyme disease, Cheese is already getting taller and wiser, but still with that cute toothy grin:) a dog that got his teeth whitened, and one frog that jumped out of the tank and took a hop, then realized he was in fact a water frog, so he was dried up by the time we found him...(God bless Phillipe the froggy) and all in all life is awesome...the business is excellent...the girls I have are all amazing...I/We are sooo blessed! Thank you to the universe...Our lives are wonderful!

I probably will only post monthly...If I can even do that...I may return, but trust me I am out there reading and keeping up with all of you! Keep writing, I would miss you all dearly:) and please if you want to see what is going on at the shop, visit Bijou! I've got some good music there:)
