What does a mom do when she has a whole week to herself? Well, in my case, she makes three lists (I am all about making lists) things I want to do, things I should do, and church things I should do. Then I let guilt be a driving factor, I know pathetic, but it is just the way I am.
Grandpa and Grandma T came and took the kids to Mississippi. I cried as they left the kids were too busy watching a movie on our portable DVD player to care. I did get a couple of things done. I did throw away any toys I thought they wouldn't miss and reorganize their room. I didn't clean out the fridge. I did paint on a little ceramic house, I didn't do one lick of scrapbooking. I did go work in a garden, I didn't call those Sisters I wanted to visit. My mom was making fun of me, but all in all I got some things done and I was way relaxed ( apart from me calling the in-laws 4 times on Wednesday until I got to hear my babies voices).
So, I didn't do everything but I survived the week and I got a little tranquil beauty in as well as quite time. Now my kids are home and I love the noise!
What do you do when you have your free time?
