Getting away to find perspective

My children have succeeded in driving their mother crazy. So complete is their success that I find myself frequently uttering these once unthinkable words:
"Honey, you need to get out. Go ahead, call a friend and escape for a while. I'll take care of these---things."
With that, she's out the door in 2.5 minutes. She called me from her mobile phone shortly thereafter,
"Hi, Honey. What time would you like me home?"
"Anytime," I said. "Just have fun."
"OK," she said excitedly. "See you Sunday."
