I Took a Vacation Day!

Hi Everyone!

I took a vacation day today! 
I normally don't work on Mondays, and since my kids are back in school- today is the first day since the end of May that I have been home (not working), and had the house all to myself.
I decided I needed to do what ever I wanted to do- and only what I WANTED to do.
Today NO dishes, laundry, cooking, or cleaning was done by me.

A much needed vacation day!

Since I was in the holiday mood, I made a card for myself.  I thought about writing a note in it and leaving it on my husbands desk, but I didn't want him to get the wrong idea.  :)

A couple challenges :

Frosted Designs- Clocks/Time
Scrabookaholic by Abby- Anything (and her last challenge post)
More Than Favors-Travel
The Paper Variety- Travel

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Julie, love that you did something for yourself and the card is perfect. I don't work, no kids and still can't seem to find enough time in the day to play. You're's either dishes, housework, laundry, taking care of dh and now eight cats...ahhhhh! I need a vacation day too. Thanks for the inspiration, I will let my DH know it was your
    Have a great night.
