Do you get Me Time?

Mine is at the early hours of the morning before everyone wakes up?

What do you do when that time is trespassed on? (like the DH deciding he wants to get up early, too and wanting to be social at 6am?)

I don't wanna hurt his feelings, so I end either enduring it or moving to another room. When he follows me, I get irritated and just give up.

  • I am the same as you...I like my "me time" in the morning and when my guy comes in and starts playing his x-box...I REALLY want to scream "GO AWAY". But I don't. I go back into the bedroom and read a book or start cleaning. UGH!

  • I'm a stay at home mom so I usually get alot of "me time",sometimes I can't wait for my daughter and husband to get home just so it isn't so quiet.. I look for things to do to keep my self busy, which alot of times is setting right here at my computer. LOL!

  • I'm the complete opposite. I don't need "me time" or "alone time" at all. I'm with my husband 24/7 and prefer it that way. I get lonely when he's not around. I don't like it, period. Heck, like I said in another question, we don't even go to the grocery alone.

    Thank goodness we're both stay at home parents. I don't know what I'd do if we had to work and be seperated.

  • Yes I do. Right now most of my 'me' time is from 7:45am -10:45 am when all 3 boys are in school and hubs is at work. Then I have the house to myself (well me and the 2 doofus cats). So that is my uninterrupted time to get things done, watch tv, or sit and veg. On the weekends or sometimes during the week I can have 'me' time at night, after everyone is in bed and the house is quiet. Then I usually read or watch tv.

  • It's not hard for me. I am a SAHM. The kids are in school. After I straighten up the house and put a load of clothes in the washer. None for me on the weekends though.
