How do you get your moment of sanity?

I want to know what all you ladies do to have your own mommy time, what makes you happy? Besides being with your kids. Be open and be honest.
Mine is when I get to get my nails done and the Hubby has the kid or being able to sleep in one extra hour on Saturday.

  • When our boys are at school all day... Now as far as Summer goes, I will make it a point at least once a week to get out of the house and let our 14 yr old babysit for an hour or so. The younger 2 are 6 and 7 yrs old so it shouldn't be a big deal. In August they will all be gone about 2 weeks so Hubby and I will have a little break together...

  • I run around naked and beat on my hand drum, or tambourine and chant/pray. I also use aromatherapy, nature sounds and visualization techniques for those days, when I only have stolen moments here and there. I do one or all of these everyday to maintain my sanity and peace of mind daily.

  • It may sound crazy, but I clean my house. I can get some cleaning done when I am working through something. I just work like a robot without thinking about the task - just the problem. By the time I get it worked out, I'm finished, tired, and my house is really clean. I know. It sounds backwards, but I have to work out the energy some issues cause.

  • I wake up an hour earlier than the kids usually do that way I can get my coffee and relax before everything really gets going. It helps me out A LOT.
