My kids come first. Husband second. Myself last. When school starts I'll have me time until they get out of school after my mom duties are done of course.

I've been working on PTA stuff, although that isn't really focusing on me. lol  I have also read a dozen or so books this summer while floating in the pool while the kids swim.

I'm right there with ya.  My husband knows that if I don't get some "me time" at least 3 times a week I absolutely lose it.  We all need a little time alone to recharge our batteries.

 Floating around in the pool in the evenings as the kids get themselves ready for bed, watching the clouds change formation, with my ears underwater so I can't hear anything around me- I feel like I'm in another world. lol Also, we have some appointments and activities, but I try not to schedule much so we can relax over the summer. I LOVE getting lost in time- having a few days with nothing going on where you suddenly one day go, "Wait? What day is it? What MONTH is it?" I love that feeling!

I just finished up a 3 day scrapbooking crop today--that's my me time!  A chance to be around other adults and not worry about my boys because they are having a fun time with Dad.  Back to regular life tomorrow...

When it happens, I really enjoy my morning coffee before the kids are up and running around. Just that quiet time to read emails or do Bible study or something.

Nothing really changes for me.  I work full time year round.  The only difference about summer is that we can do a lot of fun outdoor stuff over the weekends.
