What would you do?

If you had 24 hours to be at home in your own house without your husband and/or children, what would you do?

Would you organize? Would you sleep? Would you be at a loss of what to do b/c you are so used to having chaos happening around you at all times?

My girls are going to Nana's for the weekend on Thursday, Dave is going to Cali with some buddies and then Friday I'm leaving for the beach with the ladies. So on Thursday, it's just me. I'm a little freaked out by all this free time. Don't get me wrong, the uninterrupted sleep will be fantastic, but that's only half the day, what do I do with the rest? I think I may get bored.

So I need some help. What would you do?

knowing me i would probably organize and clean. or bust out all the crafy supplies/scrapbooking stuff--things i hate the kids getting into.

have FUN!!

there is ALWAYS watching a movie at a normal level of volume and being able to watch it straight thru....

Twenty-four hours at home by myself??? I'm sorry, my brain seized up at the very question. Hard drive crashed. System overload. Don't understand the question. Can not comprehend.

I'm with Jodi. I'm sure a lot of ice cream would be on my agenda. Enjoy the peace and quiet!

You could always come help your friend get organized and ready to go for the weekend -- and I don't even have any children to distract me!!! LOL

Enjoy your day -- sleep, coffee, shopping, sleep, you can be all rested for your weekend of fun. Love ya, Betty

Let me think. I would lay on the couch and read a book or even watch TV and not have interruptions. Then go take a nap. Then organize the spare room. Then go out or stay home for dinner. Somewhere in there I would call my children 2-8 times because I miss them. Does that sound like I have this all planned out?

Do something productive. When I have a few hours at home alone I usually veg and eat and get nothing done. Then I realized I had wasted a ton of time doing nothing when I could have gotten so much done with everyone out of the house. So do something you can be proud to have accomplished and then enjoy the rest of your day with the satisfaction of having done something well.

I'd probably do a combo of both. Sleep, relax/read, eat what I want and also clean/organize. I would get bored to relax ALL day so I could see myself doing a combo.
I can't wait to hear what you end up doing!!!

This is not what I want to do, but I would if given 24 hrs by myself, surf the internet. Sad but true. It sucks our lives out.

Here are two things I WOULD NOT be doing:

1. "freaking out"
2. "get bored"

I WOULD party like a rock star. A sober, married with children rock star, that is. Call all my friends and brag how AWESOME my life is. Drive to Safeway and secretly laugh at the crazy lady with 3 little kids in the cart eating free cookies and hitting each other in the head.

Take care of yourself during that time! Do something to feed your soul - and your belly, ice cream and pringles?
