When was the last time you got to do something by yourself? Something as simple as going to the store or something as luxurious as a spa day, just alone?

Grocery shopping on my way home from work before I pick up the kids from daycare.  It may only be 20 minutes but it is 20 minutes of quiet.

 Exactly.  I wouldn't care if my alone time was spent cleaning the house or running errands, I just want alone time!!

It definitely gets easier for alone time as the kids get older.  My youngest is now almost 5 and my oldest is a responsible 9.

I get a lot of time to myself these days (kids are 19 and 22, only one still at home)... I do whatever I feel like at the time.

It has struck me as kinda weird that, very often, the first thing people do with their 'precious' alone time is rush out to be with other people...

I go to the store EVERY WEEK by myself. My kids and my couponing do not mix. I got up this morning and went for an hour long walk. Mostly I get up super early though to have alone moments.

By alone time I mean not having a baby on my hip or toddler to chase :). Going out in public isn't technically being alone but it's nice to be able to grocery shop in peace.
