I have recently discovered Zumba. It's such a great workout and I feel so great when it's over. I'm challenging my body and my mind, and for that hour or so it is all about me.

I love to sew and read. I try to take a long baths on Friday and Saturday nights and I get my nails done every other week. Believe it or not, the MOST relaxing thing for me is sitting down with no noise - no TV, music, kids crying, hubby is sleep or at the gym :)

I either take a long hot bubble bath with feux rose petals in the water. Or I will bake cookies. I love to bake. I will turn on one of my favorite shows or put in a romantic movie and relax. Nothing better than that.

I myself live in the country so my favorite time is sitting by the window watching the world go buy while reading a good book with a good book. Of course only when my kids are doing there quite time as well.

During the day if I need a something to keep from going insane I'll put on a movie that I know will keep the kids entertained for at least 15 minutes and make a cup of tea and either read, computer, or just step outside for a couple minutes. Bubble baths after supper when the hubby is home are great too. Thursday evenings are 'my nights' and I attend a bellydancing class with a friend and then we have coffee afterwards. I love my class and I'm getting a decent workout as well :)

During the day, I take a few minutes and talk to a friend on the phone, it calms any frustratons that may be going on with the kids.
On the weekend, I go out shopping or out with 2 good friends, for luch and shopping. Or we will go out in the evening for snacks and maybe a movie.

Welll I guess my daily "ME" time is the shower. I also get my nails, pedicure, and eyebrows done every few weeks. Boy... do I enjoy that hour of relaxation. I also never thought I would enjoy getting my eyebrows done as much as I do. LOL!

A couple of us mothers who meet up at the school gate have a regular coffee morning, taking turns as hostess. We bring the kids that we have, either our own or ones we babysit, and for a couple of hours, we enjoy some adult company and the kids get to play together. Its great and we are really enjoying it, both adults and kids! :)

When I'm at home, I love to read a good book, do my gardening or come onto Facebook to see what is happening in all my friends lives!!

pampering myself of course..like going to a hairsalon and have a refreshing makeover,going shopping ALONE that nobody could bother me with my precious time to shop.and if there's still time i will go out with my friends and dined at our fave resto:)

[deleted account]

my everyday me time is when I get to take a shower....i love it in there... it's so relaxing. I also workout ... helps me deal with stressful days, and my favorite me time is shopping. I always feel better when I get myself something nice, especially shoes :-) this happens rarely but I do get the workouts in as often as i can.

Ha ha, I facebook...go figure. I also like to have a cup of tea or coffee and just sit for a minute. Another favorite is reading - If I really need a minute before I lose it, I turn on my kid's fav. show and run to the bathroom to read a short article from a magazine. It gets my mind off of whatever is stressing me out and gives me some desperately needed mental stimulation.
