Due to a non stop life of work, work, kids, kids, housework, housework, stress, stress I have checked myself into a hotel for the night.

I checked myself in at around 3pm. I have so far watched Rock of Ages and am currently watching The Hunger Games. I have had dinner, chocolate and am on to my second glass of wine.

One of my kiddies will be dropped off to me at 9.30am after the other has been taken to school. But until then, it is all about me!

Just trying to make you all jealous tongue.gif . (I can only do it for one night, as my life goes back to crap tomorrow!)

Better get the third glass of wine.

What a great idea! DP is going on a week long golf trip soon. I think I've just decided what part of my payback will be.

Oh how fantastic.  All alone, no one to hassle you, no abc2, watching what you want.  Not having to get up every 2 seconds, I could go on and on.  
Sounds like heaven.
Enjoy!

I am kind of bored. But that is the great thing! I am always too busy working to be bored. Being bored is a wonderful thing.

No strings to be pulled. Unless you call looking after the kids all day and working at night, day after day after day, a string.

I'd prefer the opposite.  DH and DS to check into a hotel for the night and leave me alone in the house.  Tounge1.gif

I'd stretch put on the lounge, order Chinese delivered ( lots of different entrees) drink wine, watch bad sci-fi movies/rom-coms, eat a whole box of chocolates, have a shower (in peace!!) and stay until all the hot water ran out and then best of all, climb into my OWN bed and sleep uninterrupted until I woke refreshed original.gif

Ahhh that would be blissful!!
