Cat's away... the mouse will play...

My husband went on a golf trip. He left Saturday and will return Friday.

Let me repeat. He went on a golf trip... WITHOUT ME. I love to golf. *sniffle, sob*

So, here is a list of things I've considered doing while he's gone:

1. Go to Chipotle as often as I like.... possibly for every meal.
2. Clean our bathroom.
3. Have friends over for apple-baked brie, crackers, and tea.
4. Have friends over for margaritas instead.
5. Watch Dear Frankie-- since I've had it from NetFlix for about 3 months, and he never wants to watch it with me.
6. Go on an evening photo tour.
7. Take up the entire bed when I sleep (since he's so much bigger than I am, I usually only get 1/88th of the bed) and use ALL his pillows in addition to mine.
8. Camp out in the family room with my girls.
9. Eat ice cream in bed.
10. Watch Will & Grace, Lifetime movies, and every other tv show he hates.

11. Invite some hottie masseuse over for the backrub that I've needed for so long.
12. Party with the neighbors.
13. Crank up some angry girl music, and sing and dance all over the house.
14. Take a long, hot bubble bath.
15. Miss him.

Some of these things I've already done in the last two days. Some of them I might do. Some of them I won't do... but they're fun to think about. ;-)

I love No. 4! Brilliant.

Also Nos. 8 and 15 are sweet. Aww.

Do as many as you can get to! (Except clean the bathroom - boo hiss!)

I just watched Dear Frankie this past weekend while my husband was away! I'd rented six movies, and it was my favorite by far. I loved it. (I also rented Elizabethtown, which has bumped something out of my "worst movie ever" list. UGH. What a stinker.)

The only thing I really like when the hubby is away - taking up the whole bed... plenty of pillows, plenty of covers, plenty of room, and a cd of my choice playing one level too loud for Paul to sleep.

What is "apple-baked brie" ??

I'd go with 1 3 and 9

don't call me MA'AM said...

maliavale: marga-RRRRREEE-tas! How could I not do this? Even if no one else can come over... Wednesday is margarita night.

tammara: now I really, REALLY want to watch it! Probably tomorrow night. Since my hubby usually steals all the covers, it's been nice waking up warm and toasty for a change. :-)

rev: it's baked brie, wrapped in puff pastry, with apples, cinnamon, brown sugar, and butter baked on top of the brie (inside the pastry). I'll have to take a photo of it when I make it. It's super de-lish!

Oh, and I already did 9. :-)

When i read number 7 i think my brain subconciously entered in a lengthy "MWAH HAH HA HA HA ha hah haaaaaaaa" on the end there for some reason. Here's some other suggestions:

16. Drive golf balls off the roof of the house late at night and blame the neighbours in the morning.

17. Construct a suit of armour and go live with bears until he returns.

18. Fill the roof cavity with flourescent lights and drill tiny holes in the plaster so that at night it looks like the stars have come inside.

19. Carve a jack-o-lantern and wear it as a mask to work.

20. See how many pigeons it takes to carry you across state and back.

don't call me MA'AM said...

wire: FABULOUS ideas!!!

And... I did laugh maniacally after #7.

16. Hmmmm. Police office lives next door to me. I might pass on this one.

17. Ummm... no.

18. I am SOOO doing this one!

19. How about I just paint my face like a jack-o-lantern? I hate the smell of raw pumpkin. Eww.

20. Would that be an African or European pigeon?

Margus said...

Did he make a list for his trip?

don't call me MA'AM said...

margus: yes, his list was as follows-

1. Golf.
2. Golf.
3. Golf.
4. Drink.
5. Golf and drink.
6. Play poker, golf and drink.
7. Golf.
8. Fly home.

When Wife is gone, I sleep diagonally across the bed, if I sleep in the bed at all. We rarely are apart, so sometimes I sleep on the couch.

I almost always have to be with friends when my family is away. I hate being alone.

I was out of town this weekend, and my husband sent me an e-mail at work before I left saying that he was going to eat nothing but Chipotle while I was gone. If only you had posted this list before I left, he could have had an even better time without me!

When's the margarita party?????? I need to know so I can book my flight!

"apple-baked brie " washed down with a gallon of icecream - sponsored by the N.C.A.

14 so you smell good for 11 followed by 7. That just sounds perfect!

don't call me MA'AM said...

julie: ah... 11 was the one that I added as a joke. Technically, a hottie masseuse will be at my house on Friday--in the form of my husband-- but that's only if his plane trip home is on time. I'm a good girl. :-)

Maliavale said...

What's that? You just invited me over for margaritas Wednesday? Yay! I'll bring the seven-layer dip (I make a mean one) and the gossip.

don't call me MA'AM said...

maliavale: Yay! I love seven-layer dip! Ay! Ay! Ay! Mar-ga-RRRREEEE-tas!

(okay, I've typed that too many times already.)
