I'm a big girl now!

I am a hunting-widow this weekend. Jimmy is off with the boys shootin' some birds. Fun stuff. I have to give myself a HUGE pat on my back for something! Last night was the first night I have EVER spent the night by myself since Jimmy and I married 4 years ago. Isn't that crazy?!

I have always been somewhat of a...freak?! I have an imagination that seriously gets the best of me. My friends, family, and Bible study girls can attest to this. It's ridiculous, but as soon as it gets dark it's like something takes over my mind and I begin to obsess about every little sound, thought, etc. Don't worry, I am praying about it. It has gotten A LOT better. A WHOLE LOT BETTER. There was a point of time in our marriage when I wouldn't stay home at all at night. This meant every Thursday while he bowled, I went to my mom's. I can't count how many times I called Jimmy or someone else to come over b/c I thought there was someone in the house. I seriously think I was somehow traumatized as a child. What's really strange is my mom was the same way when she was younger and all her adult life until a couple of years ago. I think it's an insecurity with men and the need to feel protected. Anyways, that is a whole different post in itself. But in the last year this has gotten a lot better and improved even more when we moved. Which is odd b/c our old neighborhood was very OLD and was filled with a lot of OLD people. It didn't really scream BREAK IN to bandits (yes, I call them bandits). So, not sure why the change in addresses also changed my insecurity. I think it has to do with the lights. It's much brighter on our street now and our backyard isn't near as dark.

So, last night I spent the night alone in my house. Alone with the kids. Of course I let JD sleep in the bed with me. It all went really well. I only checked the locks on all the doors 5 times. WHICH, bit me in the boo-tay this morning.

JD came downstairs before I did because I was up nursing Kenzie still. When the princess and I finally made it downstairs JD was standing at the backdoor (outside) crying because he was locked out. We have one of those crazy handles that when locked you can still open from the inside but not from the outside. STUPID, STUPID, STUPID!!! When I let him in I saw what he had been doing! He'd taken the entire carton of eggs outside and threw them all over the patio. Nice. And BEFORE my coffee! Seriously?! So after fussing and putting his butt in time out (before 8:00 a.m. - awesome) I made him go outside and clean them all up. I went outside to instruct. BAD IDEA!! The door handle was still locked!!!! NOOOOOOO! Kenzie was still inside, NOOOOO!!

We ran (literally) across the street to use our neighbors phone. I am dressed in short (SHORT) shorts and a tank (no bra). JD has his monkey PJ pants on and no shirt. I haven't even brushed my teeth and still had ZERO coffee to at least mask the smell. Luckily, we have incredible neighbors and this is not the first time. Which is even more embarassing now that I think about it. We call FuFu, who was going to be headed this way shortly anyways. Meanwhile, I sat on the backstep trying to entertain Kenz through a door so that she wouldn't crawl away and get into anything.

Needless to say, my Saturday morning started off greeaaat. We are inside now. MacKenzie is sleeping and JD is at the beach for the day with FuFu. I am waiting on the a/c guys to come out and finally fix our upstairs a/c which was delayed due to another lock issue. Our attic has locks on them b/c they are accessible from our 3rd floor media room. JD got a hold of the keys and well, lost them. So the actual repair was delayed over Labor day weekend. Anyways...shortly I will send Kenz off to KK's house. JD is staying at FuFu's. And mommy is going out with her girlfriends! Counting down the minutes....

Oh and in case you were curious. When I asked JD why he threw all of the eggs on the back patio he said, "Because the dogs were hungry. They need to eat too." Duh...


Happy Weekend!!!

That is too funny! Sorry.. I just can totally relate..
For one thing about scaring yourself... Robert works out of town during the week, and that took some getting used to. I still scare myself... "make stuff up!" ha!

And for the second thing... Coffee! I totally can't function without it in the morning!
