Note to Self: I am A Big Girl

Okay, so I am cleaning the kitchen from dinner (yes, I realize it is 9:30 in the morning and this meal happened last night and that my Monkeys had a picnic breakfast because of this) and preparing for a weekend scrapbooking trip (yes, scrapbooking- but my intense dislike of this hobby is a whole other post). We did the whole"'breakfast for dinner" thing. Not my favorite, and requires some intense scrubbing of dried up pancake batter from the countertop (I know, I know....if I had just done this last night....blah blah blah...). On the upside though: bacon. I love bacon. Love. Bacon. Once I even got it for my birthday. True story.

So I am cleaning up last night's laziness and attempting to figure out where and when I will be meeting the friend I am going on this trip with. It is a lot of back and forth with times and places, as I am being delivered via Husband UPS to our meeting point and said Husband must then race back in time to get the eldest Monkey from school. We have it down to a half an hour difference in possible times for the exchange of me from one vehicle to the other. Damn. This just isn't gonna work. And it just hit me. I am a grown-ass woman. Guess what I am allowed to do? That's right- sit in a restaurant and have a cup of coffee and wait. All by myself.


There is no need for direct vehicle-to-vehicle delivery.

Does anyone know if it is safe to eat day-old floor bacon?

Too late.....


  1. Yes, sit and wait with some coffee. All. By. Yourself. Sounds glorious.

  2. It was absolutely glorious. And very hobo-esque as I had all of my bags for the weekend strewn about me.

  3. Both of mine are in preschool and are out of the house for 2 hours in the morning. During that time I try to get laundry done and go to the grocery and dust and clean the floors and wipe down the get the idea. Just the other day, it hit me: I don't have to do that. I could sit in front of the tv, watch Ellen, and drink my coffee in peace. What a revelation!!! As you both said, "GLORIOUS" KKeyes
