What should I do?

For some reason, the company I work for decided that they are shutting down for the week of July 2- July 6 ALL because SOME people were going to take a couple of days off before or after the July 4th holiday.

Not only are they taking some of MY vacation days, but also one of my floating holidays to make up for the days that we are closed. At first I was REALLY mad about this. I wanted to choose when I took my few days of freedom. But then I thought about how I had never taken a day off to do nothing before.

Now I am pleased that I have an entire week to do nothing.(I was going to spend it deep cleaning my house, but my husband did that for me last weekend.) So, what do I with my time?

I was thinking of a few things:

1) Sit in bed most of the day and watch all the Netflix they will send me.
2) Make a new purse. I don't have a pattern yet, but I have been wanting to try to make one.
3) Sew a skirt. My friends wedding is the next weekend and I thought it would be fun to have a cute skirt to wear.
4) Go to all the nearby shops that are really too girly/boring for my husband. (not that I will buy anything.)

What do you do when you have 5 days to do nothing?

Wow... that sounds like a dream come true, 5 days of nothing. I would probably watch chick flicks that my hubby isn't interested in, bake bread, read....

But I think I might be annoyed that I was given no choice in which days to use for my vacation.

Ditto on the pissed off forced vacation. If they're going to shut down, it shouldn't be taken from your vacation. Period.

However, if you have five days, I don't see why you can't do all or most of these.

I'd add going to some new places to eat.

Oh! Yes! New places to eat! I should go places that my husband won't go to because he is a bit picky and ALWAYS wants to go to the same places.

And baking! I don't know why I didn't think of that! I should try ouot some of the recipes I ahve found on my favorite food blogs but haven't had the time or energy to make!
