If you were asked what national day you would like to create, what would it be? After today, I think mine would be "No More Housework Day" and my husbands would probably be "No More Yardwork Day".

How about "National New Shoes Day"?

@sally... that was my first though and then I scrolled down and saw you beat me to it. After sewing most of the day........ my body is screaming for a "National Massage Day"!

We don't wear shoes in the house....so I'll vote for "No Shoes " day....
It's funny, at both my back and front doors I have a small sign that says " Please Remove Shoes"....and I have a basket with all kinds of knitted / crocheted, or cloth type slippers. It's amazing how many people come to my home, and even though I will say "No, it's okay....don't remove your shoes" They insist...and most will ask if they can take the slippers home with them, and I always let everyone take the slippers home, I can always make new ones !

I put the sign up years ago for the kids and their friends who seem to always have dirty shoes.....

How about put your feet up day. Or find a hammock in a peaceful place and unwind day....I miss those days of my childhood. Sigh. Now I want summer here so I can hear the waves crashing on the beach. Okay. Go walk along the beach followed by a long walk on a long pier, sit at the end of the pier and watch the world go by day with a camera and book in tow. Quilting project optional but I wouldn't recommend it unless the wind is nil to nol.

My free time is very fragmented and I think I spent half the day in the kitchen cooking, baking, and washing dishes. I would love a Just Leave Me Alone Day!

I get one of those every year. Day after tax day, I take the day off work, and DH has to make the coffee, pack his own lunch, and pick up the pizza for dinner. I get to do whatever I want. May favorite day of the year

Bubba, I really like that one and I would vote for it too. Too many in my family have died of it.

how about National Stop and Smell the Lilac day? They are making my walks harder on my allergies but they sure are pretty.

My oldest son LOVED to clean the house.....as long as he was left alone to do it. A few times a year, he would say " Mom why don't you and dad go do something ? So, of course we would go out....and when we came back one or two of the rooms in the house were re-arranged and cleaned. He started to do this about age 13......even today, he is a great help to his wife. ( she is thrilled that he does all the things he does for her! )

BTW....even though sometimes I wasn't crazy about the things my son did around the house, I never complained. He thought he was doing something awesome, and I always let him believe that.

The just leave me alone reminds of years ago when going thru menopause... told kids I have one nerve left and they were on it. Guess I must have said that a few times for one day coming home from work the kitchen window was open and I heard my son yell "Incoming"!!! when I got in the house the kitchen and living room were empty of the family... Guess I was the Incoming!! me and me last nerve!!

I'd love a "World Good News Day."

Not that news of illness, deaths, famine or world crisis would stop for just one day ... but that cures were found, crops and water would be bountiful in every part of the world and people would sincerely agree to resolve differences without brutality.
