the children's last day of school is Friday. and the three of them are going to visit Casey's dad in Utah for about three weeks. the girls leave on the 7th and the boy leaves on the 13th and they will all be back on the 29th. which means that Brian and I will have the house to ourselves for that whole time!
don't get me wrong, I'll miss them a lot. I always get really sad when they're gone for any length of time. but it will be so nice to spend some time at home alone with my husband. this will be a big change from prior summers when the kids were gone and I would freak out and get depressed and do destructive things. obviously a good change. I don't know what we're going to do with all of our free time but it won't even matter. I'm starting a list of things I would like to do so I'll know what they are when the time comes. lots of picnics and day trips to take pictures hopefully. and maybe we'll try to get away for a weekend while they're gone. that sounds nice.
in other news, I have cramps today. stupid cramps :(
