Mom’s Day Out

Something I fail miserably at is making time for myself. I put everything and everyone else first, and eventually this leaves me haggard and snippy and resentful. If mama’s not happy, no one is happy, AM I RIGHT? My husband and I have agreed that this year, in addition to making time for each other, we will also make time for ourselves. Every few weeks we’ll each get an afternoon to go solo and do whatever we want.

This isn’t a time to do housework or pay bills – this is my time to recharge and have fun. My husband wanted to know what I planned on doing on my first solo-afternoon. It’s hard to narrow it down!

Mom's Day Out

Have a Drink While Reading A Magazine

My biggest guilty pleasure is enjoying an adult beverage while reading a trashy magazine. How else am I supposed to know what is going on in the lives of Hollywood stars?

What would you do with an afternoon to yourself?

    Oh if I had personal time I would get my haircut! Or go bra shopping, that’s an event that takes time and patience under normal circumstances and right now my life is not what I would call normal!

    Oooh, a day to myself? I don’t even know – could I be home alone? I would love a day at my own house, playing my music as loud as I’d like.

    my perfect day without kids includes drinks and a beach. And no sand-in-crotch castles would be made, either.

    Just me, a friend or two, sunscreen, and a stocked cooler. :)

    @DESIGNHERMOMMA: Oddly enough, I had one of those last summer. By taking the kids. I just found another kid about the same age as the oldest, and they all spent the whole afternoon playing in tidepools while I hung out with said other kid’s mom. It was an afternoon of pure awesome. :)
