How do you stay at home moms find time for yourself and for the things you love to do? Life outside of home and kids.

I had major problems with this. My husband works in the oilfield and is gone ALL the time so I never had anyone to watch my son for me to go out. Anyways, a friend told me to check the local YMCA out and so I did. The monthly membership is only $34 a month where I am at and they have a childcare facility to watch the baby while I work out or take a spin class or yoga or whatever. Then, whenever I am done we go to the pool and swim and play together. Seeing as I HATE working out, this was not the ideal solution for me, however, it does give me some time to myself and gets me out of the house. This is helping to keep me motivated to get toned back up as well. Anyways, just a thought :)

You find some hobbies that you are interested in and make sure they are on when your husband is home to look after the children.
I found finding some other Mother's to go out and have coffee with was great. Go to a playgroup or find a Mother's group and organize a dinner out once a month or so without the kids or hubby's.
