Shut everything off...cell phones, computer, tv. close the blinds, drapes, etc. Then take a warm bath that should send you off to la la land. :)

I'm on here for a reason, I don't sit on the computer everyday all day. My schedule is very business all the time. When I'm on the computer they are usually awake!!

I have two year old twins and a 8 month old, so it's crazy around here. Everyone is on different schedules.

Yes, with the kids sitting next to me crying. This is my way of blocking them out!!!

i know how you feel teandra. i only have two and yet i dont have time for myself. yes, i can sit in front of the computer, but there is that lingering anxiety that one of them might call or might need your help.

i feel exactly the same. actually, i want to go out and have some personal silence. you know, without someone calling you mommy every minute.

i try to schedule a time off but cant seem to find the perfect time. just seems like something is always going on that it wont be the right time. so i just drink a cup of coffee while i sit in front of the computer trying to catchup. or, i sneak a bar of chocolate all for myself... hehehe. i know it is quite childish... but we do need some "uppers"

find your upper so that even for a few minutes it'll make you smile :) hang in there teandra

I know how you feel I have 5 and I only get 3 hours total of sleep
but what I try do is when my kids go to school i try to take a nap and when I get up I feel a little refreshed so try it and as far as getting time to yourself have a family member or someone you trust to watch them I have did it a couple of times and it felt so good to be enjoying myself out again all of us moms need it.Good luck.

if you have time to sit in front of a computer you have time to sleep....
