I have been looking forward to today for weeks now.
It took a lot of work to coordinate the trip for 17 boys and 5 leaders but the Grandy boys, and the most of the troop, pulled away this morning without a hitch. I'm certain that the boys will have fun, both young and old. The Dads going are a great group. The boys will come home with some great stories, new merit badges, and a very distinctive odor emitting from them that will take another week to get it out.
So what does this mean?
GRANDY HAS THE HOUSE TO HERSELF FOR A WEEK!!!!
Here is my very own honey-do list for the week. I've never done my own, surrounded mostly on what I WANT...so it's kind of fun.
*Take a nap - will do that when I'm done here.
*Read a book - yep! Started one yesterday, and my goal is to finish it this week.
*Dishes - Not a biggie...I do that anyway. NOW I can do it with my Broadway Channel blaring in the background.
*Work - Didn't take any days off but I've got meetings, and one of them involves a boat trip in San Francisco one day.
*Post Daily Here - It's been a while, and I'm having difficulty with the scheduling feature, but I can do this for a week!!
*See Altar Boyz Thursday - It's a musical I'm not familiar with, but the reviews are pretty good. Going with a friend, and any night where I can get Sushi and a Musical is a great night.
*Go to Lake Tahoe Friday - Going with another friend to catch Shakespeare at Tahoe. Oh yes, a good girlfriend (she's been trying to get me to go every summer for 6 years), Lake Tahoe, good wine, and my boy Bill. It rarely gets much better.
Not a bad week, huh?
It's sad that I try to squeeze in my first loves (theatre, music, reading, writing) while my other loves are away. It just kinda works out this way. My time is not my own when the boys are around. I need to work on that balance.
This might be JUST what Grandy needs.
See you all on the other side of a week of Rest and Relaxation!!!
