Diana and I have been living the no kid life through-out July. Not that we don't love our kids, we just don't mind (too much) that they are gone. We have a good time hanging out, watching movies and doing other fun things without the kids. We were pretty proud of ourselves that we did not go out to eat that much without the kids (which is usually our first option when we have no kids home). Diana and I watched the entire 2nd season of Buffy together, as well as most of the 2nd season of Big Love. We also love to watch Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives together and chat about places we may go. Of course, Diana's big summer obsession is So You Think You Can Dance. I don't mind that she watches because it gives me all kinds of stuff to mock, as well as some extra working time at night.
I also cleaned out the shed (huge project, with no kid help). Diana got through a huge load of ironing (took her two days at 8 hours a day). It has been a busy time and now we have to start getting kids ready to go back to school in a month.
