the valium diaries


Thirty six hours.


In thirty six hours, Surfer Dude is off on the camp adventure of a lifetime. For four weeks.


Thirty six hours.


In thirty six hours, I'm going to make Girl, Interrupted look like the Brady Bunch. For four weeks.


I've calculated how many days Gumby is going to be gone, too. Between spending time at the lake with the grandparents and going to visit his best friend in Texas and the days in between that he'll spend with his dad, I feel like I'll not be seeing him much at all until we go to California the middle of July. I'll spare you all the hourly countdown - for now - but when he goes, they're both gone. And that leaves me with Sasquatch, who, in typical teenage fashion, isn't home much at all.


What the HELL am I going to do with all this free time????

It will be tough. You will have to find something else to complain about. You can do it. :)

my two cents said...

You can start by having a Happy Birthday! XO

Southern Drawl said...

Awww, blog, shop, have a girls night out, watch old movies, eat popcorn and veg on the couch, best of all, control the remote!

Is it your B'Day? Happy B'Day!!!

Rudee said...

You've really got to stop rubbing it in. What I wouldn't give for a little free time like that!

Just think. The house will be a lot cleaner. You'll have to go to the dreaded market less often. You'll have more free time to writer.

Bliss.

If you aren't careful LFG will be right~

Make a list, as this suits you, of small things you wish to accomplish:
1. paint toe nails
2. write book
3. find a real "handy man"
4. invest in rain gear for work.

This is just a partial list... go wild RC, the world is your oyster!?

You're like a friend described me when I found myself by myself for a few days, i.e., "you're like a bird whose cage door has been left open - you don't know which way to fly."

Tidy his room? It'll be a challenge to do it in four weeks... (if he's anything like my son is in teenagerdom!)

Or redecorate the house.

If your going to have all this free time then buff up on your corresponding.

Maggie May said...

You will find plenty to do I am sure.

I am also going to be lonely the summer holidays (later for us) as my son is taking the granddaughters to Japan for a month.
Hope to keep busy & that nothing will go wrong with my computer.

You make me laugh. There are so many fun things to do when you're on your own. You've just forgotten about them. You'll be the mistress of your own time and your own house. Take advantage of that.

Get yourself on a plane and come and spend some quality time with me in Wimbledon......Wimbledon Tennis Fortnight starts a week on Monday and if that doesn't tempt you....

aims said...

Your question should be -

How will I get everything done that I want to do for me before they get back.

Akelamalu said...

It's your birthday????? Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you....

Well you can have a rest for a start. Go shopping, do your nails, have a long soak in a hot bubble bath, get your hair done, have a massage, get drunk. The possibilities are endless. :)

My baby girl is leaving for cheerleader camp tomorrow, and then choir camp two weeks later. Not quite the same, but since she is my only one, I mourn. I am constantly aggravated while she is here...but then I get all sad when she leaves and my ovaries ache. I totally get it.

david mcmahon said...

Read all those good books you've got lined up!

my two cents said...

I think in the end you'll find that aims is right...

laurie said...

hey, happy birthday!!!

Frances said...

You can spend some time having a growned up life. Mum's aren't really grownups, they are too busy dodging the flak.
Or you can complain about how quiet it is, and keep LFG happy.

Booty calls. Lots of 'em.

Around My Kitchen Table said...

Ah, freedom! Such bliss to have some time to oneself - just as long as everyone comes back SOON.

Frances said...

or you can write a blog!

Diazepam was the second benzodiazepine to be invented by Sternbach of Hoffmann-La Roche, following chlordiazepoxide (Librium) which was approved for use in 1960. In 1963 its improved version, Valium, was released and was incredibly popular, helping Roche to become a pharmaceutical industry giant.also Generic Cialis this pill is the best.
