A Weekend to Myself....Really?


For some reason I joined this group of bloggers called Crazy Hip Blog Mamas...maybe saw them on Wendy's Site, maybe the other J, not sure...I haven't checked them out very often, because hey, only so many hours in one day, and I have all of these blogs over to the right there that I MUST read, or I will wither up and die. Well, today for some reason I went over there and looked, to see what's up. They are positing a topic...What would you do if you had an entire weekend to yourself. So, here goes...

An entire weekend...to...myself....hmmmm. I'm thinking I would either:

1. Sit around and eat Ruffles Naturals, drink Chardonnay, and watch stupid chick flicks, plus post about 15 blog entries, read everyone's blogs, etc., until I realized that I blew an entire weekend, and get really pissed off at myself...

OR

2. Hop on an airplane and go to New York to visit Janet. She is one of my very best friends, and seeing as how she's currently single and w/o kids, it would be (hopefully) easier for her to take me out and show me a good time. We'd drink a lot, I'm sure, eat some tasty food, have a great time, etc. Maybe fit some shopping in there. (with Janet? Duh, there'd be shopping.) Catch up on life...her family, her divorce, which is of course painful, but the right thing. My family. My work. Her work. Then we might start talking about old times, like when we stole bowling shoes from the bowling alley and boy, we thought we were so funny. Or when we went to a Halloween party, and my costume fell through, so at the last minute I decided to dress like a tampon. Or maybe the times we would go to the karaoke bar every Thursday night and watch idiots make fools of themselves. And congratulate ourselves for never being stupid enough to do that...except maybe that one time...

We would have a GREAT time, I'm sure. Ted's been telling me I should go. Maybe I'll find a way.

You should definately save up for a little trip. Just for YOU. Every now and again, it's just good for the soul. I love when I can get away. I used to love even just for the weekend, spending it with my childhood girlfriend. It was like the slumber parties we used to have as kids :D

How fun would that be?

And (gasp) you stole bowling shoes?

Why in the world would you want to keep those things? ;)

Option two sounds great. I really hope you can do that.

I had a girlie weekend in NYC about a month ago. It was wonderful :)

Tracy said...

Go, girl! NYC is wonderful, and time there with a good friend will make it even better! I say "go for it", and yay for Ted for encouraging you to take a girl's weekend!

Jessica said...

You should go! What a fun girls' weekend that would be!

Jessica said...

Oh - but you should plan it by April 22 so that you can come to TequilaCon (wink/wink)!

Why limit yourself? Take TWO weekends for yourself and do BOTH ideas. Then you can report back to us about which weekend worked out best for you. :-)

Ms. Mamma said...

I miss NYC and the sheets at The Hudson. You should go and eat cannoli for all of us!

Love reading that you want your imaginary weekend to be all about you - and maybe a girlfriend. Hope one day you get to go for it!

If the weekend with chips and chardonney don't work out, at least you have a back up plan. As good as potatoe chips are, a trip to NY to see a friend sounds great!

Kristen said...

There's no time like the present - we should just have a CHBM trip to vegas and get it over with.

Why don't you go see your friend and the two of you can enjoy the chips and chardonney? That way you get the best of both worlds.
