I read that post from Sereno, and have been stunned into silence, and that's not too common for me. What a lovely life you have Sereno.
I wouldn't need to visit, if you'd just send me a maid, for like a month. I think it would take her that long to get this place clean. LOL
I hate disappointing friends, it's so hurtful. I get 21 nights a year without the kids, it sounds like a lot - but it isn't, we work every evening, every weekend, and we need that time.
Anyway, I had 6 days to use up last Dec before the end of the year, or I would lose the time. I took 3 back to back weekends. Brad works second shift, so I was going to alone on the Fri nights.
I posted on FB, asking for friends to take me out, a month in advance. Three friends said they would, and we organized who and which night.
All three of them backed out on me for various reasons, and I spent all 3 Fri nights alone. All I wanted to do was go out and have a few drinks. I was so upset, I cried. I have to book my respite two months in advance, and I can't just go out any other time.
