So Long, Suckas!!!

September 26, 2008 7:02 am

Miraculously, this week ended on a high note. Graham is finally getting some sleep (with minimal acorn interruptions), Elliot’s ears are doing better and Jamie and I have rejoined the land of the living. To help lighten the load, we even hired a cleaning lady. Rock on. I found her on Craigslist and was pretty confident that she was going to murder us when she got here but things turned out alright. She did a great job but it wasn’t cheap so it was probably just a one time thing. It was also hard to work around the kid’s schedules with some stranger vacuuming outside of their rooms at naptime. Oh, and there’s also the fact that I felt like a lazy ass for sitting here and watching her clean because I couldn’t leave the house.

On a cheesy note, I’d like to sincerely thank everyone that listened to my pity party and gave words of encouragement. It helped knowing that people actually cared and could sympathize.

As you read this (well depending when you actually read it), I will be en route to Biloxi, Mississippi for a kid-free weekend of drinking, gambling and fornication. Actually, we’ll probably check into the hotel, promptly fall asleep on the bed and hopefully wake up in time for our flight home on Sunday. Either way, it’s a kid free weekend to relax and have some fun and I can’t wait. This is officially our first kid free weekend since we became parents. My parents have kept Graham overnight here and there but not for TWO WHOLE NIGHTS while the we fly off to an entirely different state. I’m both terrified and exhilarated to be leaving the kids. It almost didn’t happen with all of the ear infections going around but everyone is stable again and we’re getting the hell out of dodge before my parents change their minds.

In the interest of geekiness, I am bringing my laptop with me on this trip. Whether I’ll be able to get online at the hotel or not is another story. I have already written my weekend posts so don’t forget to check back and keep reading. Yes, I know… what kind of loser writes posts to cover her vacation? Me, that’s who, the loser who suffers for her blog.

Peace out, my homies.
Pics from our last gambling junket, Vegas 2005

This is our standard self-portrait. We have about ten thousand of them, all with the same cheesy grins on our faces.

Jamie with some dude. Made out of cement.

See? Durrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, smile.

Notice anything different in these photos? Ahh yes, we had no children. This was about three weeks before we got married, Jamie’s company flew him out to Vegas for a conference and I tagged along to enjoy the free accomodations. No wonder we’re smiling, we weren’t suffering from sleep deprivation.

    Have a kick ass time! Enjoy the gambling and I’m sending you a virtual dollar to spend virtually. Um, yeah. That seemed more intelligent in my head. Eh. I’ll go with it.

    Yeah, you’ll be sleeping and waking up late to relax around the pool while the rest of us are stuck home with our crying and screaming broods! Sure! Abandon us why don’t you? That’s right, forget about the little people!!

    Okay, now seriously, have fun and live it up – you deserve some sanity and time away from that tree!

    I’m a newbie to your site.
    Thanks for the entrecard ads!
    And have a great time, first vacay w/o kids! Sounds fun!
    Yes, you are a geek to be taking your laptop with you. I do the same thing and so do all my blog buds. It’s how we roll, no? Gotta be ready to post drama when and wherever it strikes! ; )
    Will be back again,

    Have a great time! There aren’t any oak trees in Biloxi, are there? I have a confession (see what Jen started?!), D&I have yet to be overnite kidless, so kudos for you for doing it! Enjoy and please give us details so we can relax vicariously ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m totally jealous. Enjoy! Not just for yourselves (although you certainly deserve it) but also in honor of all us other moms who don’t have the luxury of entrusting our children to willing family members for a whole weekend. Party like a rockstar, dammit! Party like you mean it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Wooohooo! Have fun! Although, you’ll probably end up going to sleep at 9pm (that’s usually what happens to us when we go away.) The life of a parent (sigh). Seriously, have fun…and don’t do anything I wouldn’t do… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just sayin…If you win the big jackpot don’t forget about all of your readers. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Drinking and gambling makes for one-hell-of-a fun weekend, but throw in some wild unadulterated hotel sex…and you have a weekend to remember. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Have a good time, and I hope you get lucky…uhhh, with the gambling that is. ๐Ÿ˜€
