Home Alone (without the Phillipi)

It was a first for me this weekend. The two Philips went to Brownsville, TN for a surprise birthday party for Mamie and Big George Moss. I had a big event at Birmingham-Southern College which was the Sesquicentennial Celebration and Alumni Reunion Weekend. It was exhausting but such a great event to coordinate through our office of Student Affairs along with Alumni Affairs/Advancement. Here is a picture of the fireworks at dusk. It is now 10:45 p.m. and I've called Big Philip to check on him and "the boy" about a dozen times since they left midday on Friday. Two nights away from his Mommy! I hear he has been great and I wish I could say the same. But as a friend pointed out, this is good bonding time between father and son. I can't wait for them to get back in town on Sunday afternoon! I'm going to try to make the most of it by taking a long hot bubble bath and then tackling some chores while I don't have any mommy duties:
Bathe the dog
Walk the dog
Love on the dog
Tell the dog that we still care about him and know he still exists
Sew on some missing buttons from clothes
Sew some new bibs for Little Philip
Wash ALL the dirty clothes, even the ones I've avoided for weeks
Vacuum and clean Philip's car

We really missed you mama! The surprise party was fun but we were happier to see you Sunday afternoon.

Yeah, and those chores sound nothing like "mommy duties."
