Now that FDS is off Reddit, feeling motivated to make this post that I was putting off:
When visiting r/breakingmoms, I came across a post about what a mom would do if they had a whole day to themselves. When I read it, I was struck by how much of it I do without these stressful obligations that they have.
>I would play video games on the big TV with the sound up and order Chinese, eat it while it's still actually HOT, drink my coffee while it's hot and within an hour of pouring it lol, watch YouTube that isn't elmo and take a nap. That cat Cafe sounds amazing.
Yep, video games, eat hot Chinese food, drink hot coffee, watch whatever I want on youtube and take a nap
>Not only hot, but it's whatever you want with no thinking about what everyone else wants and no cooking
>I love playing my switch handheld but I played on the big screen the other day for like 10 minutes and was like...damn...this is actually amazing
I do that, and for more than 10 minutes. Check.
>Hot meals are so underrated. And nobody ever understands why im so pissed that its cold AGAIN or that I have to also get up to reheat my food AGAIN.
I have never had this experience.
>Ugh I would go get my hair cut and coloured after 4 years without a haircut! Got get some Japanese food for lunch with a really good book or some magazines, then walk around a book shop or library and get a coffee and dessert after
That was a really nice Saturday for me.
>It’s my birthday tomorrow too. My husband is deployed. My oldest 10 brought covid home as a close contact from school so now my 3 month old, my 1.5 year old and I also have covid and are Quarantined at home. I’m feeling sad, alone, lonely and depressed. No one to call and say happy birthday to me. No one even knows it’s my birthday. Happy birthday to us for tomorrow.
Imagine having a husband who doesn't even call and say happy birthday to you, let alone celebrate your birthday or give you presents. Imagine that.
>Brunch alone where no one looks at my plate and says 'Ew', clothes shopping alone, JUST FOR CLOTHES FOR ME, and a massage. Then a nap if I had time. Bliss.
