DD is at school, hubby is at work and I am just sitting home and have done nothing. I should be cleaning but I am tired and I am enjoying the quiet. But I feel guilty for not doing the things that need to be done.

Everyone needs down time!!! Take it!!! If you set a timer- give yourself an hour or 2... Then get to work, maybe you'll feel like you had a good balance.

I do that a lot. Sam is home all summer.. But when he is in school. I take an hour in the am for the gym... 2 hours for house.. 1/2 hour for lunch.. Then back to house or errands. ... Occasionally i meet a gf fir coffee for 1 hour before school ends.
But a happy balance of responsibility and replenishment.
After especially difficult weekends- i take a little more time. ;)

Enjoy it!! I rarely get quiet time lol Sadie never sleeps and Nathan is never quiet. I've been close to checking myself into a 72 hour stay at a mental hospital just to get a break!
