Happy Caffeinated Randomness Day!  I love Andrea at Under Grace and Over Coffee.  She hosts this little meme each Friday and if you have not hopped over there to check out some of the regulars, well, you should. Click here to visit…

So my husband left yesterday to hike through here:

Machu Picchu – in Peru.

Yes.  Peru.

He will be there for 12 days.

Yes.  12 days.

In case you were wondering,  as a matter of fact, I DO win the “Wife of the Year” Award.

But in all seriousness, I am so excited for him to experience this dream.  My man is utterly and completely “wild at heart.”  He loves adventure, testing himself physically, and beating his chest bonding with other dudes.  He’s a total guy’s guy.  On the other hand, I prefer to sit my arse down on the beach and read my life away when I go on vacation.  Therefore, he is traveling with one of his best pals.

Though I am thrilled for him to experience the amazingness (yes, I know this is not a word) of this, I am a little nervous to be a solo parent for 12 days.

Yes.  12 days.

Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” keeps going through my head.  When I was in high school, one of our teachers posed the following question:  “If you were an figure skater, what song would you choose to accompany your performance to win a gold medal?”

Of course, I immediately chose Gloria’s song.  Foreshadowing to some of the bumps ahead in my wild life? Perhaps.

But I want you to picture me, wearing a little ice skating outfit, twirling around my kitchen to “I Will Survive” right around the “witching hour” which is approximately around 5 – 6 p.m. for those of you who do not have children.  For the next 12 days.

And here is the single most reason I want to learn how to do Photoshop – wouldn’t this photo be so much funnier if I could figure out how to superimpose my face on hers?

Sometimes when I sit down to write a post, I’m not always sure where it is going to go.  This might be one of the scariest examples of such occurrences.  I’m so sorry.

If you are still reading at this point, I need to now just outright BEG. GROVEL.  Offer a kidney.  Whatever.

I used to be in first place for the “Most Inspirational Blog” award at “I Am Mommy.”  I am now second but just barely.

It is really not in my person to campaign for myself.  I lost many a class elections in my formative years due to this character flaw.

But would you please, please, please, if you enjoy my blog, vote for me?  Click here and scroll down to “Most Inspirational”.  My sweet friend, who nominated me, is Michelle from “Boytrapped.”  She’s up for “Best Parenting Blog” and I’m sure she would appreciate a vote as well.  Voting will close on Monday.

OK.  I will not ask anymore.  I promise.  This is it.  Release it, release it.

So what song would you choose to accompany your figure skating performance for the gold medal?
