Our first Grass Widow/ Half Orphan week out here in the field.
I have a feeling it's going to be far too busy to be lonely without Randall while he's in Chicago.
I already have a lunch date to motivate me back from the airport; (not looking forward to driving back by myself...) and I have a play date all day Tuesday.
Micah has no school Thursday and Friday, so we get to sleep in the last two days of the week. Always a joy!
I'll probably take The Boy to Wetaskiwin on Friday, and we can bum around a bit, have supper out and go to the airport to get Randall in the evening.
That leaves Wednesday and Thursday... and I had half formed thoughts about going to Camrose for some grocery shopping, so really, I'll only have one day of aloneness.
Maybe I'll plan for nothing on Wednesday, and then on Thursday, Micah can come with me for groceries. It's nice to have someone along who can get all the top shelf things that I can't reach. That's a risk, though, as when he's along I always buy more than I planned.
All in all, not a bad first week alone to anticipate.
And in 2 weeks we have company coming!
In two batches.
The first group of friends will start their "Winter Break" week by heading over to our field for the weekend, and the second group of friends will come the following weekend to end their week off.
Lots to look forward to.
Lots to plan.
Lots of cinnamon buns to make.
