24 Hours

I need 24 hours to catch up on my life.  That's what I really need.  First of all, I'd need to sacrifice 12 of those hours to sweet, sweet sleep, and since this is a fantasy, I'd like to not have to wake up halfway through to pump or wake up engorged or with plugged ducts.  I'd like my breasts to just chill out for 12 hours while I sleep.

Then I would like to write.  Uninterrupted, without tiny hineys to wipe or crusts to cut off of sandwiches that nobody eats.  I'd like to sit on my back porch with a steamy pumpkin spice latte with pumpkin whipped cream and write.  Also, the latte has no calories, but full fat.  I'd like to be able to write all the posts that are swirling around up there in my head.  The posts that come to me, fully written at 3 am when I'm bleary eyed and feeding the baby.

I'd like to scrub my house from top to bottom.  Organize every nook and cranny with baskets and bins and all the pretty things.

I'd like to cook a big meal while drinking wine and listening to music.  I'd like to have a dessert without little fingers poking into it and snatching up all my frosting.

I'd like to lie on the couch for a copious amount of hours watching mind numbing television.

I'd like to read a book without pictures.

Hmmmm...I think I might need 48 hours to fit all that in.

YES, I couldn't agree more! Except I think about how I would love a week off - without using my PTO time from work - to get everything on my to-do list done. Now that I have an hour commute each way, it gives me way too much time to think about the things I need to do. Most of our house is still in boxes and needs to be unpacked and organized. There just do not seem to be enough hours in the day...

I hope you get your 24-hours soon!

Pumpkin Whipped Cream?! Does this exist?!

Amen to it all! And that is what I want for my 30th birthday right there.

I think you definitely need 48 hours - I would skip the cooking part and just go straight to the wine - just my opinion!!!

Girl- I've been sayin that all month...I just need a week to myself (nat a day!!!) So much to do ALL THE TIME!!!

Glad I'm not alone.

Only way to fit that into 24 hours is to have someone who comes in and does the cooking & the cleaning for you during the 12 hours that you are asleep. That way, when you wake up to a organized and clean house you can spend the rest of the time just focusing on you.

Where is a magic lamp when you need one?
