Ten Reasons To Enjoy No Kids

The boys are gone and instead of focusing on how I miss them let's celebrate why it's good to have some "me-time" every once in a while.

1.  When cooking dinner I can just cook what I want without thoughts of allergies, sensitivities, organic, or deconstructing meals since Brian won't eat things "together".

2.  Less laundry- no having to wash sheets and blankets every day.

3.  I can clean my house and it will stay clean.

4.  I can watch R-rated movies in the middle of the day.

5.  Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of this week I can get up 30 minutes prior to when I need to be work, rather than the hour and a half it takes to get all three of us ready.

6.  I can drink as many margaritas as I want.

7.  I can do my errands whenever I feel like it, I don't have to time them around certain routines and rituals.

8.  If I wanted to, I could walk around naked.

9.  I don't have to hide my sweets.

10.  No having to clean up poop.


Wow, that was surprisingly easier than I thought it would be.  I could probably go on and on and on.....

Still counting down until they come home though....miss that laughter and those hugs.

Only ten eh? I could sit here all day and list the things that are better without kids.

I have put in a request for ONE day, sometime in the next six months, for complete KID FREE-NESS.

I make this request every year. It is never granted.
