What's your "get away"?

I have a nintendo DS that is mine. I play it when I'm putting my kids down for a nap or when my husband is taking care of the kids. It helps me tune out and decompress for a while. My husband kept steeling it so I bought him one too!

What do you do to get away from a hectic mom life?

  • When I'm alone I read books, play video games, get on the Internet, go out with my friends for a coffee etc.. When I'm with hubby without the kids we always plan romantic evenings, dates, fun stuff like movie nights or video game nights etc.. And sex!

  • My computers and my books.
    Being on either one of my computers is okay, but my favorite is to lie in bed and read a lot....I go to bed an hour or two early when I can just so I can read more than usual.

  • World of Warcraft :D or i go 'use the bathroom' (pretend at least so i can get away from the kids) and play tetris on our old school gameboy for 15-20min just to have some peace and quiet :P sometimes it works anyways!

  • I go for a long walk with my dog. We are also part of a dog hiking group that hikes every other Saturday. That is my ME and Robin time.
