So the in-laws have been dying to come over (not to see us really, they miss our children, lol)
But we’ve been really busy and couldn’t seem to make any dates that were mutually convenient. The DH is out of town for a night for work and DS has the day off school tomorrow. All I kept thinking was how am I going to finish this MS that has been driving me insane if both kids are here for three days with no one else around?
So, then I had a brilliant idea!
I called up the in-laws and asked if they’re free tomorrow…and they are thrilled to come for the day! And then I asked if they minded if I left for oh, two-three hours while they babysit…done! (Now, I am leaving under the premise of ‘business stuff’, they don’t really know about my ‘other’ career plans just yet. No point in stressing easily stressed people by saying I’m looking at pursuing a career that has no steady income.)
So, tonight I’m going to print out a draft of my entire MS, stuff it in my work briefcase (why do I suddenly feel like I’m in high school again?) and take it to my favourite little restaurant. I’ll have lunch and then consume copious amounts of coffee while I sit with my red pen and manuscript.
And then, by Sunday night, hopefully I’ll be saying Au Revoir to this one!
