I order Indian food, which Fiance hates, watch a ton of Bridezillas or Say Yes to the Dress on demand and fall asleep in the middle of the bed withthe air conditioner cranked up and the tV on. Bliss!

SO will be out of town this weekend too.  I always look forward to “me time” but by the second day I miss him.  This weekend I plan on spending time with my goddaughters, making a new playlist for my car/commute, mocking up the slipcover for the chair in the bedroom, watching crap TV and eating nothing but hot dogs and cereal (not at the same time).

ETA:  I forgot letting the doggies sleep in bed.  There’s not enough room for all of us when SO is here (not sure there will be enough room as is).

I mostly watch girly movies and chick flicks.  I sleep in and then I take a nap in the afternoon to pass the time.

I would clean, read, give myself a mani/pedi… Just relax. Maybe go shopping…

I would clean the house, sleep in (in the middle of the bed), go shopping, order pizza from my favorite pizza place (which my husband doesn’t like) and have some friends over for a girls’ night!

Clean. I desperately need a weekend at home by myself so I can clean. Then I would craft. And I’ve got a box of mix to make wine slushies that I’ve been dying to have. Dammit. I guess this will all have to wait until next weekend. 🙁

I like this thread. SO is out town for the first time since we have been living together. I do have my son to take care, and a massive work schedule between now and the time he gets back, but any down time I will have, I will be playing video games, watching my favorite TV shows, and catching up on cleaning.

  • Meet a friend for breakfast
  • Go to the gym
  • Order takeout from my fave Mexican place that Fiance hates
  • Give myself a French pedicure (super time consuming!)
  • Rewatch all six hours of the BBC “Pride and Prejudice”
  • Make phone dates with friends who live far away and have long catch-up sessions

If all else fails, I spend the weekend with my mom.

@OneOfTheseDaysAlice:  Can you rent DVDs (or check some out from the library) to watch on your computer?

My husband has been out of town all week, and won’t be back until late Sunday night.  And then in another two weeks, he’ll be gone for the weekend.

I cherish my alone time!  I always make plans with my girlfriends, I make whatever I want for dinner.  I wear whatever I want.  I blast my music as loud as I want to.  I paint my nails without him complaining about the smell.

This week I’ve mostly been hitting the gym and then just coming home to relax.  But this weekend, I plan on working on a sewing project, cleaning the apartment a bit, and watching plenty of horror movies to catch up on my blog/writing.  And then probably go out with some girlfriends at some point.

I sleep in, relax, and read in the sunshine.

And this weekend, I’d be watching Olympics!

A few of my favorite “me time” activities:

Taking walks at my own damn pace for once (when we go together I have to hoof it to keep up cos his legs are so long)

Baking and eating a whole tray of my favorite brownies (he’s lactose intolerant)

Eating cheese (see above)

Burning up my cell phone minutes talking to my girl friends

Watching garbage on TV like dance moms and wedding shows

Ahh, I love “me time”.

Wow, we’ve had evenings apart but an entire weekend?  Hmm, we have been living together since last fall so I would definitely do the following (not that I skimp on this stuff when he’s around, especially the working out/running part):

  • treat myself to a pizza, or other junk food at least one night
  • go for a long run, workout at the gym
  • call girlfriends from back home
  • mani/pedi with a cocktail and Bravo on the tv
  • look at weddingbee (I do this with him right beside me most of the time, ha!)
  • go to Target and browse the heck out of it!
