Well, 24 hours into solo parenting and it’s going ok. Thank goodness for the new big bed routine, which allows me to cuddle Swee'pea for a while but leave him awake and he falls asleep on his own. I’m taking advantage of this Sugar D-free time to catch some chick flicks so yesterday I rented Down with Love. I knew there was a movie I wanted to see but I couldn’t remember at the store and I thought it had Renee Zellwigger in it so I looked it up on the store’s computer and Down with Love came up so I got it. As soon as I started playing it, I remembered what I actually wanted to rent: Love Actually. And now that I look Love Actually up on imdb I’m not sure I’m really that interested, and plus, I think I might have watched it on a plane ride or something?
Oh well… Down with Love was ok but I found the ending offensive. Ewan MacGregor was hot as always though. And the sixties outfits and interior design were really cute.
Any recommendations for what I should rent for tonight? Or should I just do some photoshop tutorials?
Last night I made a lasagne so that will keep us in easy yummy dinners for tonight and tomorrow night, then Sugar D’s back on Wednesday afternoon. I can do this.
Today I am sitting on an interview panel for my first time. I’m a little nervous. I wanted to look nice but discovered this morning it’s impossible to stay clean with a two-year-old and two inches of light powdery snow fluffed all over the car. Oh well… guess I’ll just be the person who demonstrates the comfortable atmosphere of my employer.
The best thing about this solo parenting gig is that now Sugar D owes me, so I’m trying to think about where I might want to go for a couple of days by myself, since I don't have to travel for my job. Maybe BlogHer in San Fran this summer? Or a photo workshop somewhere interesting? What do you think? A girls’ weekend somewhere?
If you're still interested, and if you can think of any, you're welcome to ask me questions…
