There was much rejoicing. (yea.)
Also, the job search is going well. I updated my LinkedIn profile, posted my resume online, and two weeks later I have three interviews. Two companies are definitely interested. The third interview is tomorrow. Fingers crossed, I should have a job within the next week or two. (FYI, if you are looking for a job, Monster.com is the way to go. I am listed on several job-hunting sites and these companies cold called me from my Monster profile.)
Also, also, Thing 1 has a job out of state. Thing 2 has a summer job out of state. Princess C is staying with the Grandparents for the rest of the summer out of state. Once the dust settled from the phone calls and arrangements, Husband and I sat back, whooshed out a breath, and had an epiphany.
Husband pointed out we have never been alone, just the two of us, for longer than a week since we met in high school. O_o
I actually had to think about that statement for a moment. I reviewed our history--dated in high school, I went away to college, had Thing 1, moved in together, got married. Now, nineteen years and two more kiddos later, we will be living alone together. With no children. FOR SIX WEEKS.
HOLY COWS AND DOGS AND OTHER SACRED ANIMALS AND DIETIES AND I CAN'T EVEN...BRAIN...WHAT?!?
I think we were both grinning madly by that point. We have PLANS, people. Oh, so many plans. Weekend getaways. Museum trips. Mountain hikes. Things we couldn't enjoy before because THREE TEENAGERS have TAKEN OVER OUR LIVES.
Don't get the wrong idea. The kiddos are funny, smart, witty, geeky, clever, sarcastic smart asses and we love them to pieces. They are good people. I couldn't be more proud of them.
Alone with no children. Peace and quiet. Husband and me.
BEST SUMMER EVER!!
