This is so weird

I just waved good-bye to Eli and Sydney as they headed off for a week with their grandparents. Eli does this every summer but this is Syd's first year. I took next week off, thinking that I was going to be making a 5 hour roadtrip four times but now I don't have to so I have a week of literal leisure time ahead of me. So leisurely that my dentist even cancelled my appointment. AND I just submitted final grades and won't be teaching for two months. It's been about an hour and I feel very disoriented. I'm assuming this is the "down time" people talk about? What does one do during down time? I've already made and eaten frozen grapes...
But really, I am so stupidly excited for next week. So excited that C is mocking me. So hive mind- weigh in. If you had a full week with no work and one kid, what would you do?


  1. OHHH!!! I think I would make a photo book. I would get a pedicure. I would work out, and/or try a new class. I would do at least one project at home, ie clean a space, and maybe even paint a space or bathroom. I would organize something I have been meaning to but never have time to- AND I would snuggle the crap out of the child at home. Probably would also spend some time sitting on my bootie watching some movies or tv. I would likely also try to talk my hubs in to taking me on a date. I can't wait to hear what you come up with!!

  2. Naps everyday. Pedicure. Long, long workouts. Pool time. Reading. (THIS IS WHAT I DO ALL SUMMER)
