I'm Away

It's weird being away. I am in Calgary for 2 nights, working at our office out here today and tomorrow. I went to the airport by myself, got on a plane by myself, got picked up by a chauffeur and town car by myself (it was cheaper than a cab - honest), stayed in a hotel by myself, used the exercise room by myself, ordered room service by myself, took a cab there and a cab back by myself, and am now sitting here in my hotel room by myself.

It's awesome.

And also weird. I don't know if I've spent this much time alone in a long while, and it hasn't even been 17 hours by myself (and 7 of those were sleeping hours and do not count). It's very quiet, but also fun! I'm going to exercise again! And have a bath! And do my nails! And get some dinner! And watch TV! Yippee!

But I'll be home tomorrow night, in time for Ethan's hockey evaluations Saturday, and a picnic with work on Sunday. And I know I'll love all that too. But for now, I will revel in the silence and absorb the zen, in the hopes I can drift back when I'm immersed in chaos again.

In the meantime, look at these grown-up boys:

Look at ME! I'm in Grade Three!

Hey! I'm not excited AT ALL to be in Grade One!

No matter how much fun it is to be by myself, I'm still looking forward to getting back to those boys! - T.

Wow. The last time you got that much alone time was like February! Amazing! Must confess, am a little jealous. But treasure getting back to those Big Sweetboys. I can't believe 1st grade. Holy Cow, they're growing up too fast!
