  • Usually I get the house cleaned, bake and freeze cookies for later, read and read, sleep and sleep, and watch exactly what I want on the TV. Oh, and don't forget to take a nice hot bubble bath with the radio blasting on your favorite station!

  • Do you have any idea how many full-time mothers would give their eye teeth for 4 days of peace and quiet?

    It seems to me, that whatever people have, they are masters at suffering with it.

    You can choose not to, if you like. That's up to you.

  • Call him and see how he's doing. Enjoy the peace and quiet. Rent a good movie. Relax :)

  • Man, what I wouldn't give for a week to myself (as a SAHM to 5). The closest I've ever had was 6 hours 2 summers ago when my older kids were in school and my husband took the youngest out of town for the day. It was so nice. I spent the first 2 hours cleaning up the house (which I never really got to do with the kids around) and then spent the rest of the day playing on the computer with no distractions. I was counting down the days until my youngest started kindergarten (which would be fall 2011) and then I got pregnant again. So now I have another 5 years until I get those blissful days to myself. I plan to get all my cleaning done early then watch TV, knit, go for walks, play games on the computer, etc. I'm sure I'll find lots to do.
