  • There are a couple of things I do, if it is just me and my husband & our son, we swim together, or just sit outside on the deck. We have a small pond in our back yard, my husband & I love to sit out beside the pond at night.
    For some true alone time, I love to take a long hot bath, complete with candles and soft music. Then get out of the tub, and give myself a manicure & pedicure. Feels like pure heaven when I can snatch enough time to do that!

  • Read, do needlework, "play" on the computer, go for a LONG walk (take the baby in a stroller if you have no other choice), look for new recipes to make, organize stuff (I have a compulsion for organization, Not as bad as "Monk" though! LOL!) Take a LONG HOT BATH!

  • Usually all I have time for is a jump on the computer & do some laundry, I'm not kidding, I actually like folding clothes it's relaxing for me, the smell, I love the smell.In a blue moon I'll take a nap, or go to do something like shop by myself.Sit outside with S.O. in the early morning we can do that.
