What are your hobbies??

I am a stay at home mom to a 3 month old. At night my husband will take the baby for a little bit so I can have some "me" time. Usually I will go to the gym, take a shower, or read. I am wondering what everyone else does when they get a few minutes to themselves. I feel like I need a project or something different to do when I do get a little down time but not sure what to do...

My only suggestion (and this is just me personally) would be to find a hobby that doesn't have to do w/ your kiddo. Like working out, chatting online, board games...rather than scrapbooking the baby album, knitting a baby hat or sewing baby clothes. Now, if that's what you really like to do, go for it! But, I just cherish my "me" time and try to do things only for "me"...but that's prob b/c my DH doesn't take our kiddos regularly...or ever haha.

I just started scrapbooking recently. I haven't gotten very far with it yet lol. I have bought some scrapbooking supplies and have gotten some pictures developed, but I really haven't started putting it together yet. I'd love to do something more active though. I used to play some indoor soccer & coed slow-pitch softball, but not anymore. I feel SOOO incredibly out of shape right now.

I needed something to do too so i picked up beading jewelry. And when I get bored of that I have soapmaking and candlemaking lined up!

My partner takes our daughter for me too so that I can have some time to myself. I would usually go dance skating (roller skating) or take time out to have a nice relaxing bath.
Sometimes I even like to just sleep or sit around and watch tv!

I play FB games, online games, watch movies, billiards, read, take a bath, and grocery shop, lol. Our daughter is 8 almost 9 yrs old now so I get alittle more "me" time. I need to fit the gym in there somewhere too, lol.

i joined a bellydance class and it was the best thing I ever did!!!! It got me out of the house and with other adults. In the summer I play slo-pitch. My husband takes our girls (3 years and 18 months) the two nights a week that I am gone and it really keeps me sane. I also cross stitch when I find the time :)

I like to crochet and cross stitch. I have also been trying to do scrapbooks for my son's cub scout years.

I bellydance, read, knit, scrapbook and hike :)

Just start looking around for something interesting to try.... could be your new hobby.

Good luck.
