what to do with myself?

It's Spring Break and my XH and his family are taking my 3 children on a trip. So I am child-free from today until NEXT Sunday.

I will still be working (8-5), but could take a day off if there were something I really wanted to do.

I know that I will miss them, but what mother of young children doesn't dream of having a little time to herself?

What would you do with 10 days of having to take care of no one but you (and a bunch of dogs.)?

Sew, sleep, catch up on tv, declutter(in a major way), read LotR series, go to a restaurant by myself and enjoy not having to help anyone else, having to get a to-go box because 2yo is in a "won't eat at restaurants that don't have a playland" phase. Oh..and I'd go hang at the comic book store for awhile, which I very rarely get to do(out of the closet nerd here!)

I'd just take it a day at a time. If I feel like being a lazy bum one day, that's what I'd be. The next day, I might want to go do something, so I'd do it. I'd enjoy the time off not having to have a schedule or anything in particular that I need to do. Sometimes, my very favorite thing to do is just to be. Enjoy your time off!

Depends on the weather... if it's nice outside, I'd be working in my garden, go running/biking. I'd catch up with my girlfriends. I'd read a book. I'd take a long bath. I'd work on one of my many hobbies. I'd take a road trip, go to a museum...

and, I would miss my kids. But I would enjoy the fact that they were off having a fun time hanging out with their father.

I have some of that time coming up too, Stella. I'm still working during the week but plan to do some fishing and hiking on the weekend. I might take a day off as well.

To answer you question do all those things you normally can't do when you're being a mom. Sleep in. Watch a movie really late. Go see some friends. Make yourself a nice meal. Do YOUR own thing.

I would Sleep.... I miss sleep :-) I have 4 little ones so sleep is priceless.

And I would use the time they are gone to organize thier rooms and throw out those old unused toys that I cant do while they are watching me ;-)
