Alicia is a Goddess

Helen and Alice got a special treat tonight — Alicia came to babysit while I got a much-needed night on the town.

And oh, my goodness, I love that girl. Love her, love her, love her.

I came home to a CLEAN playroom (!) and a CLEAN kitchen. Rest assured, that was NOT the state of my house when I left it.

Man O Man, she’s a keeper. And the girls were good for her, and went to bed reasonably close to their bedtimes. Woohoo!


Tonight I get to be a grownup, and not just a mommy.

I went to the bank with the week’s tutoring checks, so now I have enough cash for dinner, a play, and the babysitter. It won’t be a cheap night, by any means. But after playing Single Mom all week, I believe I’ve earned this one.

Only 3 hours and 45 minutes until the babysitter gets here. I cannot freakin’ wait. 😀
