What I really, really want...

I really want Bob and Charlotte to go on vacation.  For a week or so.  Somewhere without phones.  Without me.

As the years go on, I better understand why my mother was so DELIGHTED when my dad and I were both gone over a weekend.

You know, most people would want to be the one to go on vacation.

Of course, I know you...you're afraid of how the house will look when you get back if you're not there.

It's not that - it's that I want to be home. In my house. With my stuff. Without anyone yapping at me or needing anything from me.

I love them both dearly, but I'm a bit starved for some solitude at the moment.

That was something I enjoyed about James' nights on duty or at sea. The girls were with me, but they were little, and once they were in bed, I was alone.

By the time he'd been out of the Navy six months, I was really, really, ready for him to go out on at least a short underway again.

I hear ya! Want to send them to Victoria for a play day so you can at least have a few hours down time?
