24 hours to myself

So ... let's say for the sake of Mama Kat's prompt number 5 that God looked down on me and said in a loud booming God voice:

"Christy ... I have pushed pause for everyone but YOU for 24 hours.  What are you going to do?"
Well, since I would be automatically be wide awake ... no coffee needed in my 24 hours ...

I would:

1.  Unpack these boxes.  It's going on 4 weeks people, and I am still tripping over at least 4 boxes every morning.  I would unpack boxes, put away clothes and put pictures where Andrew could hang them when he woke up (because I can't do anything in a straight line)

2.  Finish the kids baby books.  I would glue pictures, fill in facts and have these mementos for my babies.

3.  Go outside and walk around; take pictures and enjoy nature.

4.  Edit pictures.  Maybe I could pirate Photoshop elements for that 24 hours ... it might take me that long to learn how to use it, lol!

5.  Take a bubble bath and read my book until my fingers turned pruney.

5.  Sit ... watch the shows on my dvr that only I like.  Read my Bible and journal on what the verses mean to me.  Catch up on blogs and read, pray, love with my online friends.

6.  Play with my blog.  Create a new background for both of them and include best of pages, contact info and friends' buttons.

7.  Crawl into bed.  As I turn off the light I imagine God will look down and smile at my refreshed soul and press ...

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ---Jeremiah 29:11

What's something you would do with 24 hours to yourself and no distractions?



  1. I liked your list! I think it would be a perfect 24 hours!

  2. Sounds like quite an ambitious list that I don't really think you could do in just 24 hours. Oh, and you forgot to include sleep!

  3. Those are good choices! I would probably sleep for the entire 24 hours! ha.

  4. Excellent choices. Maybe if you dedicate 10 minutes at a time twice a day those darn boxes will get taken care of.
    (I have some not unpacked after a few years.)

  5. Since the husband got a job, and The Boy is at school, I get about 8 hours to myself each day - and manage to waste that time really well!

    Great list, much more ambitious than mine!

  6. Sounds like a great list to me!!

  7. I loved your list, pictures and inspiring quote at the end. I needed to read that quote. I would definitely FB more, upload photos from my camera, and do a baby book for my 4 y.o.!
