"Personal time" if you know what I mean

As a SAHM and wife, how do you ladies ever find time for "personal time"? DH and I have a great sex life when he's home, but there are times when I feel the urge during the day or when he's gone but there is just soooo much to do. Thinking about all the work that needs to get done stresses me out too much...I just can't relax.

  • That's what I mean? How do you find the peace and quiet and time when you know you won't be disturbed?

  • Nap time works wonders when I need personal time with myself and my toys lol

  • Nap time doesn't work. I just can't relax because my mind starts thinking about all the stuff I could be getting done while the kids are down. Laundry, supper, paint my nails, wash my hair, weed the flower garden... My brain just doesn't stop!

  • I'm prego with my first child so I can't really say how to get some alone time from the kids except maybe naptime.. But I agree if u can take a shower u should have a few minutes to get away. Massaging shower heads work miracles LOL As for worrying about the housework, you have to shower anyway, a few extra min in there isn't gonna stop things from getting done. Just relax, play some music or light scented candles if u have to. the house can wait another 10 minutes. You gotta think of yourself once in a while!! :)
