My Ultimate Fantasy May Come True

I think (though I am almost too nervous to post) that my ultimate fantasy may come true tomorrow.  I've asked my husband to do this for me for years.  I have not been alone in my own home for more than a few hours since my oldest child was born--back in the 1990's.  Frequently, I travelled to Illinois with my three children (and no husband) to visit all of our family for either one long or a couple short visits.  I've hinted, asked and begged my husband to take them for a weekend . . . WITHOUT ME.
Guess what?!?!  I think he is actually going to do it!  I could be alone in my own home from noon Friday until Sunday afternoon!!!!!!!  My plans include hot uninterrupted baths, reading, and a bottle (or two) of wine.  Not one more expectation.  Just me, myself, and I.  Not inviting friends.  Solitude.  If only I could get my husband to take the dog . . .
