Have you ever or would you ever

check yourself into a hotel, all by yourself, for a 24 hour period to get a break from your family and household chores? I asked my husband for this for my birthday. I just want a 24 hour period where I don't have to take care of anyone or think about anyone's needs for a day. Where I can just relax and do what ever I want

  • I have never done that, but I have thought about it. It sounds great and I could get away from it all for a little while.

  • I want to do this so badly. I told my mom and she thought I was crazy. I fantasize sometimes about being a hermit in a mountain cabin for a month or so when I'm older and the kids are grown. I would love a day or two to be completely on my own and able to come and go as I please.

    In fact, I've looked into taking vacations solo and would love to if the guilt wouldn't eat me alive over spending so much money on just me vs spending it all on a vacation the kids could enjoy, too.

  • One of my friends said she had done it and I thought it was the best idea EVER! I am so jealous of my hubby right now because he will get off at noon and pick my son up from afterschool around 3. He has 3 whole hours to himself! I get off work and go pick up the twins and go straight home! What I wouldn't give for 3 hours to myself!

  • I've thought about it... I've also thought about packing up a bag and getting and the car and just driving til I find something interesting to do... I think a lot of the desire to "get away" is more about time with yourself than time away from everyone else.
