I'll be gone one night. Maybe a little over 24 hours.
Tim will be here, with the kids. Four healthy and very capable kids. I have complete confidence in my husband and know he'll take good care of the wee beasts (who aren't so wee anymore). He won't do things the way I do, but he'll get those things done. Furthermore, those children are relatively self-sufficient.
And yet, I still feel like I need to leave the house in a state such that no one will really notice that I'm gone.
I don't have time to answer the question, only to ask it. And so, I'll leave that answer for another day.
