To think this is a massive waste?

I never have a break from the kids or work. They have never all been to their dads overnight.

This week he has had them the whole week yey! Great for them and him.

Only I didn't know in advance and I'm busy at work so I spent 4 days of it working all day and late into the night and have given myself a bad chest (asthma/aircon/unfamiliar office germs).

So now I have two totally free nights and days, I feel well enough to be painting the town red and what am I doing? Sorting washing. Exactly what I do when the kids are here. I'm so fucking bored and have no where to go and no one to go with!

AIBU to be pissed off at the massive waste of freedom and just a tiny bit sad?

It is unfortunate and I hope you feel better soon.

Perhaps you could try to look at it differently.

OK so you are stuck in the house, what can you not usually do when the kids are there? Get creative!

Watch a movie with an 18 certificate during the middle of the afternoon?

Lie in and eat Ben and Jerries for break fast

Have an hour long bubble bath with the ipad and a glass of wine.

Read your book in peace and quiet all day while wearing a face pack

Eat your favourite food (which the kids hate)

Play your favourite music really loud.

Have an hour long phone chat to your best mate

Order a really self indulgent takeaway?

This too shall pass.

Why do you have to do the washing now? Go out tomorrow! Get in touch with friends! Friday's done but Saturday is all yours.
