Lionel Richie - Dancing On The Ceiling

So my husband and kids are gone for the weekend .. we have a trailer about two hours north of us. It's nothing special. It's old .. about as old as my husband .. lol. I actually like the seventies feel of it though! It keeps us warm and dry and it's in great shape for it's age.

I really don't know what to do with all my free time now that they are gone for two glorious days .. ohh .. what to do with all the precious free time!! All I know is I can't get the song Dancin' On The Ceiling out of my head. I don't know how the heck I got this in my head but it seriously just makes me want to dance. Oh yeah .. let's take a trip to the eighties ..

You know .. I get all excited about the idea of having time to myself .. and then comes the guilt. Stupid guilt. Little voices telling me I should have gone with them and that I'm a bad bad bad mom. I hate the guilt.

Dear Guilt Trip:

Go away guilt .. all I want is a little time to myself. I just want to paint the kitchen this weekend. I'm not going to the bar or hanging around with wild and crazy people. I just want to get up tommorow and do a workout tape and be as loud as I want without fear I'll wake somebody up. Heck maybe I'll even clap along when they do on the dvd.

Guilt .. you know I love my kids more than anything in the world. But sometimes I just need a break. Guilt, I am a mom but not a perfect one and sometimes it's just nice to be alone. Alone to read, paint my toenails, watch a movie or two and not have to worry about making dinner for my family.

Guilt, please go and bother somebody else this weekend that is truly deserving of your attention. I really don't need you this weekend!


  1. enjoy your weekend- guilt free! I'm sooo jealous right now! you have no idea!

  2. Have a WONDERFUL weekend to yourself. Early on my hubby got in the habit of taking baby away for a night once in a while - he'd take her to visit friends with him. It was wonderful. I was always welcome to join, but it was clear I didn't have to and could use the time as a break. It was awesome! No guilt involved whatsoever - you need time to be with yourself :)

    All the best!

  3. OH! I hope you have a fab weekend! :)
    You just STOP feeling guilty! You deserve it... and I don't even know you. I just know that ALL Mom's deserve a break, sometimes :)

    Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog today :)

    There's no door on my pantry now, because we're in the process of either ordering some new ones, or building them.
    but... I'm tired right now, so we'll see if it ACTUALLY get's done anytime soon. LOL.
    Sometimes life just makes me tired.
    Just laid down with the baby to get her to sleep and jumped up when I realized that I was falling asleep too. lol.
    I have too much work to do, to be falling asleep at such an early hour.
    But I'm DEF. sleeping in tomorrow :)
    Well... as long as the kids will let me.

    Okay... I'm babbling on. ha!
    Have a GREAT night!
