  • A pedicure! I've got the little foot soak tub and I turn that on and soak my feet for about 15 minutes and then go to it. That's about once a week or every 10 days, though. On the other nights, TV, CafeMom, a little cleaning-no big projects, just some tidying up so I feel organized when I go to sleep.

  • I am a SAHM of my 3 year old and my 7 year old SD. Usually after they go to bed I clean up the house from the day and then go to my room and watch TV while I fold laundry, or crochet, or even just play some cards (solitaire) by myself. My SO likes to relax by playing on the computer... so we usually have our personal alone time for a bit after they go to bed, then we both watch some TV or a movie to have our together time.
