busted fridge and no babysitting

November 24th, 2008 at 06:25 pm

Well we returned home from PA to find the fridge is busted, all the stuff in it ruined, and a puddle on the floor.

Not a happy return, but it was a good trip.

At least we made it in one piece anyway.

I realized wile there how much I need my kid free time.

UE had major trouble falling asleep the first night (he doesn't like nights and strange places make it worse) so I sat up with him, online, but still not free to do as I liked. As I finally fell asleep (I think before him) I realized how much I need that evening to myself, normally all the kids are asleep by 9 or at worst 10 (El stays up later than the other 3) and I have one or two hours to be 'free' or quietly free anyway.

All that nightly time ads up to why my husband and I don't really have a major urge to get babysitters to often.

In fact the last time we had one was while UE still didn't sleep (seriously for like 2 years the boy didn't sleep) poor babysitter was surprised when I told her I don't care if he is up when we get home, so long as he isn't screaming. That was over a year ago.

Not that I wouldn't mind being able to do more, but no not much. I am getting a babysitter so we can go to the dentist without kids next month.... yeah some kid free time and I am using it to go to the dentist!

    That's funny. Just yesterday, a new friend of mine commented that my husband and I don't go out w/o the kids. I told her no, not usually. Who has the time. (Or money for that matter.)

    Had a Pastor once spazzing cause my DH & I never left the kids and went somewhere. I looked at him and said "Hey they're in bed by 8" He backed up and was quiet. I can't imagine having to stay up with them as well as spend the day with them. Would make my hair grayer!
