    What would it be. I say how between the house, work and the kids, I need a break (who doesn't) we seem to "lose ourselves" as we get so wrapped up in the day to day life.

    I am thinking about taking a retreat... maybe 2 days to myslef, if possible. Problem is, I always want this time, but what would I do. I want to "find myslef" again. Not sure what would make me happy.

    I love crafts... maybe scrapbooking or something or some other craft that I could start and finish in a weekend. Even when I get a babysitter, I feel like I need to clean my house or organize. I just do not know what to do for MYSELF.

    Does anyone know what they would do for THEMSELVES if they had a couple days alone?? Don't know what I did without my kids.... I am boring now I guess.

    Could you find yourself again?

    If we're talking magic wishes, I would be giving a speech about how I was instantly and painlessly cured of all my ailments.

    And I'd tell everybody how it can be done at home w/ no trouble or expense.

    If we are talking about going back in time, I'd spend a Saturday w/ my son when he was little. Going to the park, seeing a movie, etc.

    Or good afternoon over there in Maryland. :) I am taking a day to myself with girlfriends on Feb. 3rd. I am really looking forward to it. One of my best friends (I have known since I was 6) is having a birthday. We are going to one of the spas at the South Coast Winery here in Temecula. We are going to lounge there all day, have pedicures or massages, lunch and champagne. I rarely get to spend all day with my girlfriends, so this will be a treat!

    Now, when I have a couple of days, I want to take the gift certificate that my husband and I got for our anniversary. It is to go spend the night at a really gorgeous hotel on Coronado Island (off the coast of San Diego). I want to pay for another day or two, when it gets warmer, and go relax there. My husband proposed to me on the beach at Coronado Island, it was very romantic.

    Hope your day is going well, meet you on the other thread later! Kim :)

    rock... great wish... both the magic one and the memorable one. Wish we could have magic... you could tell all ofus how to fix ourselves right up!

    Kim ... sounds like a day I need to plan... can just imagine it! How romantic about the proposal... much better than mine at a restaurant..OL. Like yours better.

    Anyone else?? Alot of us complain all of the time about "not having time" just wondering what you would do if you were given some....

    I would take all my docs and people who have stood with me and helped me through this dd to the fanciest resort in the warmest climate and eat everything except seafood and let people just wait on me but not hover. I would probably be bored after 1/2hr. lol.

    I have it all planned out! just need some money. I would like nothing more than to go to Banff Alberta & stay at one of the castle like hotels in the rocky mountains. I heard one has a spa there. I would allow myself to be extremely pampered for 4-7 days....I'd love to enjoy a dogsled ride as well. Not too much to ask considering I care for 4 young kids while dealing with an incredibly bad flare. Take Care Laura
