My Mini Break From Everyday Life.

by Sherry
We had the grand kids visiting for the last six days.  Steve took the grand kids home yesterday and he is spending the weekend with dad at his house.  This gave me two days of peace and quite…no cooking, cleaning and no responsibilities!
You will find me here enjoying my much needed break.  This is the perfect day to try out the new
pool floats.
Tonight I am thinking of ice cream for dinner and eating Nutella straight from the jar.
What would you do with 24 hours with no responsibilities?

Just recently my husband was traveling and my youngest son was on a trip. I was home alone for the first time in my 51 years on earth!! It was amazing! I stayed in my pjs all day one day! I found out being alone temporarily really invigorated me! Enjoy your day!

It is good to have some time to yourself. I would probably take a long walk at beach! I hope you enjoyed your free time.

My grand QUADS came to visit yesterday! They are 2 years old and it was the best visit yet!! I didn't need much recovery time but their parents use up a LOT of energy loading up and unloading four babies so we really appreciated them coming!!
By the way….I love your blog name!!

Oh I could eat ice cream every day for every meal! Yum! Except, I probably couldn't fit in my clothes anymore after doing that. Your pool looks so inviting.

I probably would multi-task around the house as usual, spend a ton of time online on my blog and shop and maybe go thrifting. All the usual, just no guilt for doing what I want!!

Hi Sherry, Sounds like a great time. I, on the other hand, have had three days without hubby and am working on Six pieces of furniture, unloaded a trailer plus a lot more. I'll collapse when he gets home. haha
