Kiddo gets back today. Kiddo and Pap went to visit his parents for a long weekend. It has been hard, but it was so needed. I wanted to say no Pap could not take him out of state, but that would have been the emotional answer, trying to get back at Pap for the pain he has caused me, but in the end just hurting Kiddo by not allowing him to visit his grandparents.
I have not left the house in 48 hours. Yesterday, I did not get out of my pajamas. This morning I did an initial job interview in bed. I hope I make it to round two. I thought it went well. How many times have you referenced Office Space in an interview and it was understood?
I forgot how I truly enjoy my alone time. I watched bad movies, too much Pinterest (I am so addicted), drank wine and even cooked for myself two of the nights. Today, I had a pajama cleaning dance party.
Now I am not the woman that keeps a spotless house. I have a serious clutter problem. I am the type of gal that gets a hand cramp vacuuming. True story.
I am not ashamed to say my mother (yes, mother) comes by when she is not traveling and helps me out. I wash Kiddo’s clothes daily…cloth diapering and all, but I neglect to wash my clothes. She comes in and helps and it is so appreciated.
Pandora has a great algorithm and their shuffle is AWESOME. This is the nerd in me that I would even think of this.
Here’s a sampling of my Dance party playlist:
Thrift store by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis – I love thrift store shopping. This was my personal theme song for a while.
Recently by DMB – Favorite band
Just The Two of Us – Will Smith
Open Arms by Journey – 2nd favorite band. I am able to listen and not bawl my eyes out. I got a spatula and private lip sync concert is in full effect.
Locked out of Heaven – Bruno Mars – “cause your sex takes me to paradise” Lawd, yes, one day I will experience this.
Airplanes, Part II – B.o.B – Sometimes you just need to release some Eminem anger
Don’t Drink the Water – DMB, I sing this to Kiddo every time he’s in the tub!!
Treasure – Bruno Mars – shake my booty and know that I will be someone’s treasure one day
Keep on Loving you – REO Speedwagon – Can sing along and not cry
Better Things – Sharon Jones and the DAP Kings – Read these words…
Jump Around by House of Pain– It ain’t a dance party unless you gotta hold the girls while dancing.
Separate Ways – Journey – Did I tell you I LOVE Steve Perry!!
Tight Jeans, bad hair and white heels – Just awesome!!
Betterman – Pearl Jam – where’s my flannel shirt and old acid wash jeans?
Grenade – Bruno Mars – And you gave it all up, your loss
Harlem Shake – Baauer – who needs words. Wow, what happened to music…I had to skip this one
Play That Funky Music – Wild Cherry – what’s a dance party without some disco?
I got in some cardio, released some stressed. It was great. I don’t necessarily need four days away from Kiddo to get some alone time. But I am thankful I had them. Wish it did not take me two days to truly enjoy my time alone. Will not happen next time around.
Furry teeth are gone, no more coffee breath, kitchen and living area cleaned, showered and pajamas are in hamper, its time to get the Kiddo.
