Do you enjoy your Alone Time?

I'm a SAHM and both my children will be starting school this september....I'll be home alone for the first time since they were born! It's nerve wrecking. Do you moms enjoy this alone time? What do you do while they are in school?

  • I do enjoy my alone time but there are times when I miss my son.

    I occupy my time by cleaning my house, doing laundry and running errands.

  • YES I enjoy having time to myself, I am involved with some hobbies that I do on my own that have nothing to do with the kids, I think its a good idea to do things just for me.

  • Yes, I enjoy it. It is nice to get laindry and housecleaning done without being bothered every 10 minutes. I am also starting my own business, so this time helps.

  • I love my alone time, gives me a chance to recharge. Reading a book or watching one of my "girly" shows helps me destress, but I use most of the time my son is in school to clean, run errands, etc.
