Home alone - What to do during the holidays?

I was really looking forward to the holidays, 4 days in a stretch, wonderful. Daddy and I didn't plan for anything because it's quite scary to travel during these long holidays because the traffic will be so bad. A four hour drive can turn into a 7hour drive. No sir-ree. Better stay in the quiet city. We're lucky we didn't plan for anything too. As yesterday night, Daddy received a call and he had to travel to Germany tonight itself for work. My face turned sour immediately after he hung up (he was talking on speaker phone). Me : "So, what am I supposed to do these 4 days?" Daddy : "You can come with me if you want." Me : "niah seng Just for 4 days? You think I'm so desperate? And we're so well off?" Daddy : "......" Me : "Some more you have great plans, want to bring your daughter to the park for walks, do some day trips around KL. Now.." *turn to Zara* "See, next four days, it's just mummy and you" Daddy : "....." Zara : *grinned* (as she didn't know what this was all about) So for the next four days, I will be alone with Zara. Not sure what we'll do, maybe we'll : - camp in King's Wife's place - camp in my sister's place - go shopping again - go to the park with my nieces - drive each other up the walls (aw, she's really not that bad; and neither am I) - go swimming And in the night, after Zara is asleep, I'll try to complete my long write up about how I try to conceive for 6years, and finally got Zara, and also, read the 2nd installment of The Confession of the Shopaholic - Shopohalic Takes Manhathan. That's something to look forward to isn't it? Ok, so I shouldn't complain about the quiet time I'm going to get.

well, I know how it feels. Hubby tends to get that kind of "instruction" to go to Hong Kong (or Germany, or China) at the last minute.

Irritates the hell out of me when we have other plans in store. Like yours, mine will say that I can tag along. Whatever for? Sit around the hotel and lay eggs?

Baby smooches,
actually I don't mind tagging along if it's for a week or so, and plan ahead. Short trip, no point.
If I tag along, I'll go walk about on my own, done that before, quite fun. Next time try it.
But with a kid, I think my mind will be with her all the time, won't enjoy.

Jason,
DH is Dear Husband? Can call them soi-lou also.. :P
Not high post, kuli for the company.

I empathize with you, Agnes! Hubby was supposed to be on leave today and now he's not even home yet!
