Homeschooling Moms Homeschooling Moms

Warning... "Mommycation" .. lol (PIOG)

So, after 4 years homeschooling my kids and being their scout leader, I'm getting a "Mommycation" as DH called it!

I've had the kids with me, at least one kid- but usually all three  with me almost 24/7 for four years. There have been a couple "date nights" and one 3 day trip to Vegas with DH and I alone but that's IT.

So DH decided since he works so much and rarely sees the kids- he is taking them to Oregon for 2 1/2 weeks -all by himself! For Daddy bonding time! I think it will be a real eye opener for him to see what I deal with all the time.

They are homeschooled but we use a Charter school so I sent 1 hour a day of school work for each of the kids. They will spend the first 4 days or so camping, then visit with family for 10 days, then spend another 4 days coming home.

Myself on the other hand... I'm spending a few days with my parents, hanging out with my girlfriends, having a Girls party on Friday night (margaritas, mexican food, poker, chick flicks, locking everyone's keys in the safe till morning! LOL ), taking time to get in extra workouts at the gym and the karate dojo, reading a few good books (LOVE $2 books at the thrift store!)  etc!

Noce they get back- the kids are going to my parent's house for 5 days and DH and I and some friendsre heading ot Vegas! YEAH BABY!

Just has to share :) So I'f Im' here too much bugging... you know I've gotten bored!

PS- if you have any good ideas of how to spends ome free time... I'll take it.... I spent today out running errands with my dog...grocery store (she waited in the car in the shade), Petsmart, home depot and the park. LOL

That's great! I home school my babies and I am going to my girl scout leader training class on Thursday! A Momcation for me is when I get to take a bath by myself! I wouldn't know what to do with me if I had that much time! Please have a margarita for me!

That is sweet of your husband but I would be sooo very lost!  I have never been apart from my DH. That is just us.  We just stay together all the time.

 crater lake is great!!

Quoting Jinx-Troublex3:

I got a text from DH today..they are at Crater lake, fishing sucked yesterday. He sent a pic with it. They had their big winter coats on so it must be chilly... LOL...

He didn't give me an itinerary so no clue. He said, "Camping for a few days" but I know they will end up near Portland and stay with my in-laws for 10 days before coming home.

Oh, you'll miss them sooner than you think you will.

Visit friends who have no kids. It's probably been a long time since you could spend much time with them...
