What Would You Do With an Extra Day?

Busy moms know time is a precious commodity. They're always on the go: rushing, planning, and organizing. It seems there's only one thing they're not doing—sleeping. So the ladies of the January 2007 playgroup recently put the question to the board: What would you do with an extra day to yourself?

  1. "I would take a long hot bath and work out for as long as I want [but] not necessarily in that order." —agentdscully
  2. "I would sleep as late as I wanted, read, go have lunch by myself at a cafe, clean up our place ... and then read some more with the TV off, the condo all clean, and a few candles lit. Aaaaah." —kittygal18
  3. "I would go get a massage, then I would come home to an empty house, sit on my hammock chair in the back porch with a book and a glass of Vanilla Coke next to me. They don't make Vanilla Coke anymore, but since it's a fantasy I am having a glass while I read!" —cl-freebutterfly
  4. "I would get my hair done, then go and have a day away with [my husband]. It it would be nice to get away from it all for a little while and not have to look after kids." —berthila
  5. "I would paint, while listening to music with my front door open to catch a breeze (since this is a fantasy, it is summertime in my dream). I would have my friends over and we would [talk] about something really wild over several bottles of wine. And then I would go to back to sleep without the lurking anxiety of how much sleep I will get before I am awaken by cries." —ryelle2006
  6. "I actually wouldn't sleep in—I like early mornings when the house is quiet and I can sit and drink my coffee and read a book. Then I would go for a brisk invigorating walk with my dog to really get the day started. And I will take as long as I want to shower and fix my hair." —nevadabeth
  7. "I would take a nice warm bath and shave the forest off my legs! I would have my hair and nails done and if I had time to slip in a tanning session, I would be so happy!" —sarenalynne
  8. "I would sleep in, scrapbook and eat great food that somebody else will cook for me!" —signlin
  9. "I would go shopping without having to rush and have a sit-down lunch by myself with a good trashy novel for company." —mommachelle03
  10. "I would go to the spa and sleep. Thanks for teasing me, it will never happen... not anytime soon!" —steph_mom4
