  • Usually I take a nap or at least have some "rest" time. My guy goes down for the night by 7pm, so I do things I need to do without him either when he goes to bed or when my husband is home to play with him. Nap time is quiet time in our house. And I only have 2 more months of having only 1 child, so I am enjoying those two peacful times during the day while I can!

  • I clean. I have my "me time" when my husband gets home and settled in or after everyone goes to bed.

  • During the weekend I do some cleaning of some sort but I also have me time. I try at 1:00 to eat my lunch, watch Without a Trace and get on cafemom. That is my "me" time for the day.

  • I am selfish during naptime and indulge myself with the things I love to do. I usually sit either in front of the computer or I have my nose in a book. Sometimes I like to get a shower alone too ;)

  • Best thing to do is nap too. The chores will always be there. You need to take care of yourself also.
