Why am I blogging instead of teaching 22 five-year-olds? Well, I didn't go to work today :-) Daniel and I took off Friday to go to ACL and had a great time. Seriously, other than the rain/ mud, we could not have asked for a better hoorah before he leaves on Saturday for London. We saw fun shows, enjoyed (some) beautiful weather, ate scrumptious food, and got to see some pals. A little bittersweet, since while we were having this mini vacation, I knew it was our last weekend together until I visit Daniel in mid November. I'm trying to look on the bright side of being without my husband until Nov. 19 (and after that, until late December). Here are some perks.
1. No cooking.
2. I will go from 5 loads of laundry a week to 1 every two weeks.
3. No more dirty mirror by his sink.
4. I can sleep in the middle of the bed.
5. I will no longer feel guilt when watching Project Runway.
Of course, the perks of being alone pale in comparison to falling asleep with the one you love, long walks with our dog, watching the Office together, cracking up over lame jokes, etc etc.
Anyways, I took today off to finish some chores, so I gotta go!
