Paul and the kids left for Vegas on Friday afternoon. They will be back next Monday.

Pablo went out the lake with one of the rotary families and I spent the weekend in quiet. I did not even turn on my computer, except to email Paul and check in with him.

I went out Friday evening and slept in until 7:30 on Saturday. When I woke up I read a book in bed for a little while. It was cold in the morning so I just snuggled in with a cup of coffee and good book. It was wonderful. I waited until it hit 15C and then I went out for a run, came home and had a hot tub and a shower.

I did go out of the house to get a baby gift for our neighbor and to pick up some groceries for myself and Pablo when he gets back on Monday evening.

I have been knitting away on my vest. I started and finished an entire book. I borrowed three movies from Dave and watched them all. I went on three runs, washed all the sheets in the house and cleaned the kids rooms. I did a little shopping and had brunch with Doug. It has been very relaxing. I am just starting to miss the energy of the kids and Paul in the house.

The timing is good as I work for the rest of the week and Pablo is on his way home from the lake. I will get my fill of people again and have lots to distract me from missing the kids and Paul.

Enjoy your "me" time while you can. They will be back to give you all the noise and company you need soon enough.

I just read Shannon's blog and I think she has a good idea: While everyone is gone, dress like a princess!

I did not realize that you were alone for the weekend. I hope that you enjoyed your free time.

No one in the house at all? That's a rarity isn't it? Hope you enjoyed your solitude.
