Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah!

Oh.My.God. Precious Oldest has returned to the Princeton on the Prairie. Precious Youngest is in a van driving across that same frozen prairie on her way to the State Debate tournament. Many, many, many miles from here. Hours and hours from here. She will not return until the wee hours of Sunday morning. Do you see where this is going? Do you? Do you really?

I came home from work to an eerily quiet house. And it hit me. No one here but me and the Saint for the next forty eight hours! My, my isn't that nice!* Whatever shall we do?

No bonus points for me - please elucidate.

Definitely call in sick, go to a museum, out for dinner, movies, whatever you want. This time will pass too quickly. Sorry, I have no idea on the bonus points option. Tell me?

Lovin' your blog. Hope you and hubs have a very special 48 hours. Oh and you are tagged.

Daisy Jo must be the only one familiar with my brand of off color joke ;) (Thanks for the tag tx, always happy to share my quirks!)

Yay for time alone! I just had the same experience yesterday, but I hope yours turned out better than mine. We made turkey soup. Really.
