What is that one thing you do for YOURSELF? Do you take an extra long shower or get you hair/nails done? How do you make yourself feel good WITHOUT the kids? I'm only asking because I don't get this time and finally have it today!!! What do I do? I don't have kids and don't want to clean the house it's ME TODAY!!!

  • Shower, dress up with some makeup and...ask a friend to meet you at a coffee shop. It still feels good to look real good just to go do nothing much at all.
    Don't wanna leave the house? Get something done that usually takes the organizing those stacks of photos into their albums, or cleaning out that one closet and finally fixing that one thing.
    Me? I try to have at least 3 things I can do for myself as soon as I get the chance. I like to catch up on reading a good book, working on my music, practicing my bellydance, and letter writing.
    Don't feel guilty if you just want to slump on the couch with something to drink while blaring some music.

  • I take extra long showers =] I turn on my favorite radio station and spend an extra long time pampering myself. I use masks or exfoliators I don't normally use. I give myself a pedicure. I spend an extra long time cooking a nice meal, making sure every little detail is perfect. Then I usually end up on the computer or laying on the bed watching TV haha.

  • I love to sing. Karoke night. Or bowling. I once had the night alone at home and I watched a movie, made a yummy dinner and drank some wine. It was nice.
