A weekend to myself

If only.
I got the writing prompt from Crazy Hip Blog Mamas so I thought I'd try it. But really, the idea is almost beyond my comprehension. Yes, I have gone on two scrapbooking weekends since my children were born, and they were incredible. They were weekends to myself, and I loved doing them, but ultimately, they are not my dream weekends. If I had a weekend completely to myself, I would sleep. Seriously. I would stay in bed all weekend with a pile of romantic suspense books (my favorites) and I would sleep and read, sleep and read. Okay, so maybe that would last for one whole day, but I doubt I could stretch it out for two. Maybe if I did that at some beach resort/spa. Yeah.... okay so I could sleep as late as I wanted and then go do some funky spa treatment, like a Swedish massage and then a seaweed body wrap. I've done massages before, but a body wrap just sounds ...decadent. Then I could enjoy a meal prepared by someone else and cleaned up by someone else. A nap, some reading time, and then some other fancy spa treatment.

Bottom line: sleep, reading, and pampering. Yeah...that sounds like a fabulous weekend. I love my husband, and it would be nice to have him there for some of the weekend (I'm sure you can guess which parts) but it would also be nice to know that he was home with the kids so I wouldn't have to worry. Aaaahhhh...dreaming about it is nice, but I can't imagine it happening anytime soon. I'd settle for just a day to myself to sleep and read in bed!

I would SLEEP so much and read, too. Oh, it would be GREAT! I posted mine, too.

And I think I tried to reply, the linky thing is free. I goofed it up the first time around, didn't read the FAQ and follow directions. Go figure... ;)

I am right there with you. DId you read mine?
I think all moms want the same thing. Sleep, time to stay in bed, and the longest hot bath one could imagine.

Isn't that scary that all we want is sleep? I've become obsessed with it.

From the posts I've read, if there were a CHBM convention, the only things on the agenda would be sleeping and blogging and more sleeping. We are a tired group!

Pampering. Now that's what I'm talking about. Highly underrated I think. I'd pay good money for someone to wait on me hand and foot. I guess I need to be a toddler again LOL

Pampering and sleep...I could use both of those!

Sleeping is definitely at the top of my list too!
