When he came home for work I had his bag packed, his bedding ready, and was waiting for him outside. He had no clue this was happening.
You see, my daughter and I made plans to have a girls night out during May for Me. (May 11th I think.) We were both supposed to tuck $20 in an envelope each payday starting this month. So today when I went to get groceries I got my first $20 out, ran home and stuck it in an envelope labeled May for Me!
Then...it happened. I felt guilty. My husband needs some time away too, you know? He works all day dealing with a bunch of 2 yr olds. Well they are men of all ages but most inmates are not real mature people. My husband is not a guard. Much worse. He's more like a principle or something. He spends his day having meetings, dishing out punishment and working through other issues with the prisoners. I just deal with one little 2 yr old boy. He deals with too many to count.
So, I packed the camping stuff, called one of the local campgrounds and sent him packing about an hour ago. My May for Me money is tucked in his pocket. There's plenty of time to save more; and I am happy for it to be spent for this.
The boys and I are going to make brownies. Then when Stephen goes to bed Seth and I will have a movie date with our freshly made brownies.
Tomorrow I'll write up a blog with Bingo FAQ's. Tonight I am going to wonder how my husband's doing since I kicked him out for the weekend. And enjoy my boys!
