If I had the day off tomorrow....

I'd sleep in. Then I would go to IHOP for breakfast - alone. Then I would go to the bookstore & browse as long as my heart desired. After that I would go try on pants, skirts & bras in a variety of stores (I really need bras). Followed by lunch, at Quiznos. Then I would come home to a preferably empty house (I'd have to travel at least 45 minutes to do any of the shopping & eating I mentioned) and digi scrap for a bit or maybe work on my cross stitch. I'd make myself some dinner without having to consider the likes & dislikes of the other 3 people in my life - cream of mushroom soup with toast covered in mushroom boloagnese sauce and a spring salad with goat cheese. (DH hates mushrooms & goat cheese. The toddlers only like breaded chicken strips or spinich salad.) Last I'd have a nice long soak (in a tub somebody else cleaned while I was out) and climb into bed to read a good book before falling asleep.

Now, if DH had the day off tomorrow I'd like for us to take the kids up to the National Zoo & spend the day there. His idea of a day off though would probably involve sleeping in & then doing things with power tools or the tractor.

Stacey, I love that bookstore browsing idea and that is a great day's plan to me.

Ok, your part of soaking in the tub (that someone else cleaned) made me laugh out loud!

And making a dinner that YOU want!! Love that!!

And new bras!! YES, I need new bras too!

It's good to know I'm not alone with this stuff!!

Your whole day sounds like heaven! I love the idea of making dinner without worrying about other people's likes/dislikes--that alone sounds great!!

I agree with Glynis, the best part of your dream is the dinner of your faves, and the sleeping in, and the bookstore, oh and the bath (in the clean tub), no the best is the book before bed! Love it all!

What a wonderful day! I would go to the National Zoo too! I love going there but when I was there, they still didn't let you see the baby panda! Darn! I will be there in July and hope to see it then.

It all sounds pretty good to me as well. I know you wanted to go alone, but it looks like there's now at least 6 other people who want to come too!!
