The Gift Of Solitude

This was my Mother's Day gift this year:






For Mother's Day I got to stay here ALL BY MYSELF.


I got to read, blog, surf the net, swim in the pool, go to brunch, cruise around town and check out my old stomping grounds, and, most importantly, I got to SLEEP IN. To me, this was heaven.


What about you? Would you consider a day and night by yourself a treat? Boring? Scary? Or would you wish to be with someone else?


p.s. Honey? Best Mother's Day Gift EVER.

THE ONLY THING BETTER WOULD BE TWO WHOLE DAYS! (sorry my caps lock was on and I'm not about to re-type it all).

What a smart, smart man. I want to do that some time, except I think I wouldn't know what to do with myself.

Sounds like heaven to me! I love being alone when I WANT to be alone. And sometimes I don't. It's a wise man who can figure out the ratio.

You did it! This is the BEST present ever.

I liked it so well as a young mother, I ran away every chance I got. Now, as a retired single, I STILL ENJOY IT, EVERY DAY. (But I like to make sorties out to friends and family.)

I would totally enjoy it, but I would probably enjoy it as much if the hubby came along too. Sounds really relaxing!

That looks heavenly! What a great idea.

I wouldn't want to be by myself in a hotel, lol.

I'm sure once I have kids and such my answer will change, however.

Ohhhhh. You're husband is a genius. A freaking genius!

I was able to do this a few years back and really enjoyed myself. I'd like to do it again sometime. I'm glad you had such a nice time.
