    And mom is having fun. Watched a movie, had some drinks, pretending that I have no responsibilities!!!!

    Monday, the guy from the mentoring program comes..........I have dug out the dining room table and my computer desk (the first things you see when you walk in the door) and when I was out running kids around? My mom vaccuumed! Way To Go MOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I dusted the poor piano! All I need to do now is sweep and mop the kitchen and clean the bathroom.

    At least it feels good to get the house clean.

    What is the source of your freedom? Formal respite care? or just someone with a big heart?

    No formal respite, that would be nice.

    easy child is staying with a friend.

    difficult child is staying with his dad and his dad's friend (who will make sure difficult child is safe) and has a son difficult child's age who difficult child gets along with on and off.

    Still... its a break. I remember needing breaks so bad - and not having any options.
    Maybe that's why my house still isn't clean? :rofl:

    Oh, you mean a break is not when we break?????

    It is nice, but I don't think it will happen too often.

    I'm past that point (breaking) now. Somehow, it looks like we all might survive!
    But I probably won't get caught up on the house until the kids leave home.
    Its a good thing that my computer doesn't have a video-camera attached... or the people on this forum would fall over in shock and dismay at the sight of my office.
    <no, I'm not kidding>

    Well, we could have "messiest house" contests! And I know some others posted to the effect that they are neat freaks, so we could have "anally cleanest house" contests too!
