Boo is going away for the night on camp.
He will be gone for 28 hours.
Or 1680 minutes
100800 seconds. Give or take time for traffic.
Not like I will be counting or anything.
I will miss that butthead like you will not believe…
While I am DANCING with GUILTY FREEDOM.
He will have an awesome time (stop worrying) and will enjoy himself (stop thinking about that kid that went missing at Easter) and wont go missing (OMG KELLEY FUCKING STOP IT) and will be hanging out with other like minded kids (aka he can just be himself) and MPS and I can do whatever the fuck we want!
Leave the house at a moments notice? YOU BETCHA!
Sans pants for 28 hours? GO FOR IT!
Go out at night? YOU GO YOU FINE THING!
How about a late dinner at a restaurant that is not a drive through? WHY THE FUCK NOT?
Go out for the day and come back in the dark? NOTHING STOPPING YOU!
Go to the movies! HUZZAH MOTHERFUCKERS!
The options are endless and quite overwhelming my friends. I am getting a little light headed at the thought.
And to be perfectly honest what will probably happen is we will go shopping, spend the entire time talking about him (and fretting) be home before dark and asleep before 9.
I feel guilty being happy, excited even, being away from him. I adore that enormous hulk of boy and he is really quite wonderful, but it is nice to get a taste of how you ‘normals’ live every now and then. Not that I would trade him in for anything… don’t get me wrong. Fuck no, I wouldn’t have a typical 16/17 year old thankyouverymuch. Already lived through 2 of those already with The Damn Emos and couldn’t do that again, I am quite content with my guy here.
Just a break every now and then is… just so nice.
So, I will pack his bag tonight and try and plan something nice for us to do – or not, and just wing it because OMG WE CAN! – and try to not let the guilt of being happy eat away at me. And NOT spend the entire damn time looking for presents for him like we do every fucking time we get a break. MY GOD.
Do you feel guilty being away from your kids?
What do you think we should do while he is away?
