  • i love being able to shop 'til i drop..that means, window-shopping, carrying something around forever planning on purchasing..then changing my mind! (my dh hates it when i do that!), or actually purchasing something that i privately tried on (rather than have to scramble around in the dressing room WITH my child). just having time to think and do whatever i want without interruption or hurrying precious to me.

  • Shower, Paint my toenails/finger nails, Read a magazine, or weird I know clean the house.

    Answer by Chas21 at 8:53 PM on Oct. 1, 2010

  • Strange as it may sound, when I am alone with time for myself, I like to pick one room and clean it. I wash curtains, baseboards, walls, clean closet (if there is one), clean the carpet, and get everything all shiny. Then the next time, I pick a different room and do it again. I love the way a really clean house feels and smells. Sometimes, I just go crazy and paint. My family will come home and always say, "we know better than to leave her by herself". But, I can get so much done, think through a problem, work out a frustration, or just enjoy keeping my house clean.
