In a couple of weeks, I am going to be kid free! Ok, semi-kid free. My 12 year old is visiting my sister in another state. My son and step-son will still be here, but they are 19 and 20 and pretty much self-sufficient (notice the pretty much).
There is still the chance that my 2 yr.old grandson (stepson’s child) will come over during that time, but truthfully, he’s not my responsibility.
So my question to all is this:
If you had a week with no kids, what would you do?
My answer would be work, of course – at least part of the time.
I also have my son’s graduation party the day after my daughter gets home. I will have a lot of loose ends to tie up that week.
We are in the process of priming and painting the laundry room and hallway, then it’s on to remodel the bathroom. If we’re not done by my daughters departure date, that get’s added to my list.
I want to paint/redecorate her bedroom while she’s gone- her birthday is a week after coming back.
Sounds like my vacation isn’t going to be any fun….
The good news is, she wants to go to camp for a week (if there is still an opening left).
THEN I’ll take a vacation, I swear!
Ok I know some of you couldn’t even imagine having a childless week!
So how about this?
What if you knew you were kid free for 4-5 hours?
Would you work, shop, blog, treat yourself to an outing, clean the house? Do tell!
I would have to say if I had several hours alone, I would probably be on the Internet trying to learn something new or figure out something that has been stumping me. I would probably clean a little too- or maybe shop ALONE!
I sometimes find it hard to just relax while I can……..
I mean, shouldn’t I be out having coffee with a friend or something?
So what about you- what would YOU do?
Just wanted to know……
