I've put in my Christmas request already ..

So today, I let me dh know what I wanted for Christmas ...

We have been invited to go up to Wisconsin Dells for Thanksgiving weekend with his dad and stepmom. Indoor waterpark, swimming, lots of good food, what's not to love about it, right? I know it would be fun and I would enjoy it ... but tonight I told dh the only thing he needed to do for me for Christmas is to take the kids up that weekend and let me stay home!

72 hours without having to feed another person, without having to dress someone, without having to change a diaper. 72 hours to sleep, read, sew, knit, embroider, watch tv, eat lots of unhealthy foods, soak in the tub, stay in pajamas all day long.
I'd be in heaven!

But, yet, at the same time, I feel bad about requesting that. I told him that I knew it wouldn't be easy to be up there without help and to not feel like he had to do this. He hasn't responded yet. I fear the dream might be slipping away ....


  1. You shouldn't feel bad! We all deserve a break. And he won't be alone. His parents will be there, right? Will they be helpful?

    Hope you get what you wish for :-)

  2. Oh, I can't remember the last time I soaked in the tub . . . . .

    Pulling for you!

  3. Will your Dad and Stepmom be disappointed if you don't go?

    Man....would I enjoy an entire weekend to myself! Brilliant gift idea!


Seeing your comments makes me smile! Thank you so much =)
