As a mom who works full time outside the home finding that personal “time out” can really be a challenge! After work my day doesn’t slow down or stop… I immediately begin my other full time job as mom which includes personal shopper, laundress, housekeeper, chauffer, train & tractor conductor, teacher (for homework that can’t be figured out), and of course boo-boo kisser.

I think that the last time I had me time I was lost… I didn’t know what to do! I mean yea, there’s a list of all the things that I can and want to do when I get the time but when I get that free time I’m so overwhelmed with my options that I usually just veg on the couch and watch something mindless that I enjoy…. like Food Network or the Cooking Channel. I know… I know… it’s an exciting life isn’t it?

Want to hear something sad…. there are times that I look forward to going grocery shopping when I get to go alone. Why? Well because it’s an hour of time alone wandering through the store. Again… exciting life. But there is a plus side to going shopping alone and it’s that I manage to get everything I need and tend to not forget as much! See…. bonus!

This week I was able to get a bit of time to myself after the toddler went to bed. I pulled out the foot bath and did a mini pedicure at home while Tweeting and watching the Cooking Channel. Now that was nice and the only thing that was missing was a nice glass of wine! That evening was my own everyday victory.

How do you carve out time for yourself? When you get that special time what do you do?
