A Long Weekend All to Myself?

The possibilities are endless.

The hip mamas over at CHBM have posed the question "If I had an entire weekend to myself I would ..." Here are my top 5.

1. Take a really long shower, shave my legs very carefully, and pluck my eyebrows. I rarely get to do all three together.

2. Go see a movie.

3. Read a book. I've fallen behind BIG TIME!

4. Shop until I drop, even if it's just to browse. Without a toddler in tow, I can look, I mean really look for new clothes, shoes, a shower curtain, towels, pots and pans, etc., etc.

5. I'm torn about this last one. I'd like to sit on the computer and read all the blogs I've been meaning to read, write all the posts I've been dreaming of writing, and tinkering with all the web tools I've been meaning to try. But, that could take the entire weekend all by itself. So, maybe I'd call a friend I haven't seen in a while and catch up over lunch.

What would you do?

The possibilities are endless. When I have the rare, rare day to myself now (can't even imagine a whole weekend!) I am torn between getting caught up on all those chores that are tough to do with the kids in the house and getting out of the house to do something for ME. It's a tough call!

I have to agree with Nancy - I think I'd love to hang out with my girlfriends all day long at a spa.

I would totally do something fun like stay in bed and read all day. Of course this bed could not actually be in my own home because my husband would come in with a screaming baby wanting me to stop him from crying. Just a day alone with out any one to bug me would be heaven.

The last one is awesome. You're right it would take an entire weekend.

I agree with number one. But I would also give myself a manicure and pedicure and then go out and get a massage. Then I would order in some mexican food and maybe watch some movies. Or I would plan to go to a specific location and spend the entire day taking photos.

Oh to shave the legs, and not rush. That is a dream come true :)

Oh, the choices! I think that being able to be in my house alone would be dreamy! Even if I were to have to do laundry or scrub the mold in the shower silicone, I would be in my house -A-L-O-N-E!! Oh, a girl can dream...(sigh)

Good list. I think I would follow you around all weekend. Except in the shower. That might be awkward. Lol.

Shower, shave AND pluck!? You really know how to party!!

I'd love to shop until I dropped. Shopping with the kids turns into a hurried event to get them out of the mall.
