An Empty Nest

While the cat's away, the mice will play. Meaning while Rei's at daycare, her parents have an afternoon to themselves (although if we follow the adage through, she is the predator and we are the prey). Shelley has a doctor's appointment this afternoon so she came home at lunch. It's an unsettling sensation to be here at home without our child. Although for many years we lived that way, it's quietly depressing now.

Although we have made the most of our temporary lapse in parental care. The wild and crazy things we've done today are many. Like eating in front of the TV and including potato chips as part of our meal. Later, I went to the gym and Shelley vacuumed upstairs. As for drinking games, Shelley is currently consuming the orange-flavoured glucose tolerance beverage for her appointment. Party-party!
