One Week Off From Wife Duties

City Center Maxi Tanvii.com

No one talks about how much time being a wife physically takes. 

My husband had been away for a week on a boys trip. So since he was back to being a boy, I decided to go back to being a girl. And ... can I say that this has been the most wonderful week I have had in a long time. This is the 'me time' which I hadn't ever had until now. It didn’t involve any planning, traveling or even another human being.

Being alone at home freed up my evenings and weekends. Once I got done with work, every single second of the remaining day was my own. In just one week I managed to squeeze in a massage and a facial, both. What a luxury! I didn't step into the kitchen to make a single thing in those 7 days, there had been zero dishes to wash, and zero loads of laundry to wash and fold. I even managed to volunteer my time for a cause (I Support The Girls), went and watched a movie at the cinemas (Chhichhore), started and finished reading four books (check: Book Reviews), binge watched S3 of GLOW on Netflix and S6 of Younger on TVLand - Phew! What a productive and fun week. 

Don't tell him but I am actually looking forward to his next trip. Ha! :)

    1. I would highly, highly recommend it. There is something special about having the whole home to yourself (for a short time).

  10. That sounds like one fantastic week, if you ask me! My husband goes on a business trip once a month, and for an entire week I get some much-needed "me time." But usually it's just reading and watching and maybe a night with a friend. I still gotta cook and clean and do laundry though haha. Loving these fun, sassy, and smiley photos!

  13. This sounds like a wonderful week! My husband is a high school soccer referee so in the beginning months he's busy almost every night. This week is that kind of week! It's a break plus I get to work on my blog stuff without feeling "guilty" that I'm not spending time with him. <3

  14. LOL! I'm impressed with everything you were able to get done in such a short time. I LOVED season 3 of glow I think it was the best one yet!

  27. That second photo is so cheeky -- I love it! Any time you don't have to clean, cook or do laundry is a good time. I think I'll go see a movie this weekend while the significant other is away.
