    Ahhhh....no screaming, yelling, slamming doors and stomping feet. I actually had the chance to sleep past 6am....peewee slept all night in the toddler bed my friend has in her daughter's room and I am now enjoying some much needed quiet time while the kids nap and someone else readies dinner for tonight. Not that I am going to spend the entire week sitting doing nothing but this one day is mine to do as I wish.

    My friend has been wonderfully supportive as has been her husband...what a doll! He picked me up yesterday and we had a great chat on the way to their home.

    My cell has rang a total of 39 times in less than 14 hours :rofl: all of them calls from home. And the messages :rofl: Seems the house is falling apart even as I type. The latest was at 7am...something to do with not having a lunch ready for school and what do I do????? Mom????? Mom?????!!!!!!! Three were from husband asking where had I put their bags(duh...the girls just dump them in the front hall and we step over them) and is there anything in the freezer for dinner Monday? I am not taking any calls...my friend answers or we let it go to voice mail....later tonight, it will be shut off...

    I really needed this... :smile:
