Reasons I Like Worship Team Practice Night

Kevin is off to worship team practice for Sunday’s service. The thing about worship practice is that they are all perfectionists, so the practice starts at 6:30, and can end as late as 9:30pm. I love and miss my husband during the week. He works in Mass, and commutes over 3 hours back and forth a day. So, sometimes I have to try hard not to resent his being gone fri nights, when all I want to do is snuggle when the week is over.

Well, tonight is an “other” weekend…as in “Every other weekend we have no kids”… which means now that I have dropped my 2 with their dad for the weekend I am alone… in my house… alone… with the news on… and no children asking to watch Cartoon Network… A L O N E! So, whereas I do miss Kev when he is practicing, here are some reasons I like tonight…

1) I don’t have to make dinner for anyone… no kids! no kev! so this is MY dinner…

3 slices of bologna with mustard, animal crackers and an ice-cold diet coke!

2) Scary and/or Gory movies… Kevin doesn’t like them… I live for them. Give this girl a good slasher movie any day. I just put on Dead Air

We’ll see how it goes. A girl really can’t go wrong with a zombie slasher flick.

3) Even though it’s 50 out today, I can turn the heat up to 70, and have a fire in the fire place! AND wear my fleecy footed jammies from The Children’s Place (did you know they sell Adult jammies? Super comfy)

4) I can spend friday night knitting and not feel guilty because it’s Friday night… and I’m… KNITTING!

There are many more, but I am all alone, with my bologna and movie…

    I think it all sounds quite normal, actually! Bill practices once or twice a week, in the evenings after his regular job. I like it better though when he has rehearsal on the night I work late – but it keeps us all out of trouble. Don’t you think a ‘girl’ night alone doing something just for yourself is sometimes needed? I understand……. the bologna, the animal crackers, the soda……. I’d be right there with ya…….. 🙂
