Day off anyone?

Don't get me wrong I LOVE being a Sahm but I just a day off!!!! Not a day off to run around town or get my hair done. I just want a day home ALONE and to honest I might just sleep the whole day away! lol My DH is great at taking the kids out of the house but all I end of doing is organizing the cupboards or scrubbing the floors and then they are back in 3 or 4 hours and it's back to being in the Sahm mode... Anyone else feel like this and what do you guys do to get that alone time? Last night I took a 1/2 hour shower. I just stood in there... lol I locked the door so the kids couldn't run in on me and my dh was great about keeping the kids in the playroom so they wouldn't just knock on the door the whole time yelling "mommy, what are you doing in there, let me in!" = ) they are cute but really! Can a Sahm have a little peace and quite without hearing Jack's big music show in the background and the dishwasher running.

Ah, thanks, I feel better already!

LOL Yep... I can't even shower without someone knocking or coming in... same way with Sunday mornings when DH takes the kids to church... I normally feel like I should be doing something since I can get things done without interruptions ... no solutions... but yeah a whole day to myself would be pretty cool, especially the sleeping in, DH normally sleeps in on the weekend while I'm up by 7 with the kids... and he grumbles that I'm kicking him out of bed at 8:30. I'm glad you at least got a 1/2 hour shower with no kids barging in.

As I read this I remember all the times I sat on the toilet in my mom's bathroom visiting with her while she took a bath. My poor mother!!! No wonder she's half nuts!
