Where do you go for quiet time?

Sometimes when my dh is at home I leave the kids w/him. I like to take off to the store (Just anywhere just to get some peace and quiet) I like to go to Walmart, Dollar General, Family Dollar, Target any of those stores where I know it is calm or quiet I would love to go to the mall but it is just as crazy out there. I am gone for a couple of hours then I feel alot better and come home with a more calmer attitude.
Not to mention whatever I bought makes me feel good too. You can find some cute stuff in those places.

  • I'm a shopoholic so I'm normally in some of these stores b4 I need quiet time. But if I am feeling a little overwhelmed I normally make myself a cocktail and chill out in the living room where no one else likes to be. if the kids or DH ha company then I'm out the door taking me a ride

  • The only quiet time I get is when everybody's at school. Then it's mostly spent cleaning and working on other stuff...

  • We live on a 125 acre farm which is very peaceful. On this farm there are 2 huge ponds with lots and lots of fish. There are some HUGE catfish in these ponds, so I just like to walk down to the pond (on warm days), sit on the bank, feed the fish and watch them come up out of the water for that food. It's amazing how relaxing that all can be.

  • I take a bath. But if I feel am REALLY needing a break, like pulling my hair out, I ask my sister to take my DD for a lil bit =] Sometime SHE will even ask me to let her take DD if she sees I need a break :P
