bittersweetness


It was so strange dropping Zach and D off at the airport yesterday.  D was so excited about the flight, looked so adorable, and I felt such tugging at my heartstrings to watch them go inside the airport.  It's pretty nice being all on my own, without a 2 year old to dictate our day and schedule... but gosh do I miss him (and Zach, too, of course).  I talked to Zach and my mom for a few minutes earlier today, it does seem like D is having a grand time in Texas.... as usual. ; )

I'm torn between using this time to take advantage and get out to do things that are harder to do with a kid, like explore the adorable-looking shops nearby or treat myself to a solo brunch out at a restaurant with no distractions, and spending the time lounging around at home and just relaxing since that is also a very rare activity normally.  So, I'm kinda doing a little of both.  And, I'm catching up on some reading and to-do's that I usually don't ever get around to.  Today I slept in a bit, uploaded some photos, did a few chores around the house, and spent the afternoon window-shopping and reading magazines at Barnes & Noble.  Maybe tomorrow I'll spend a bit of time on Etsy, getting a start on my Christmas shopping.

But now, to bed.  Good night. =)

  1. Wow, how wonderful to have some time to yourself! But I understand how you feel about not having the toddler around. It's definitely bittersweet. Enjoy the silence :)
