Make a Date With Yourself!

Today, we're giving you permission to set aside a couple of tasks that can wait until tomorrow and spend a little extra time on YOU (no guilt allowed)!

Tonight, put the kids to bed an hour early - or stay up an hour late - put aside the chores, pour your favorite beverage, curl up with a book, catch-up on some grown-up tv, listen to music, or just be quiet with your own thoughts.

When is the last time you made time for yourself?  Tell us what you did on your date!

One member who signs up for our Take Care of Mom Challenge and replies to our daily challenge posts will be chosen at random to WIN a CafeMom T-shirt!

It's been way too long. I am due for a pedicure soon and could use the alone time.

Saturdays when i cant find someone to come be with my son at my soccer game, and have to leave him at his grandmother's, are usually the only time when i have some me time, as i play soccer with teammates.

Yup, I'm doing it!! Tonight, my older boys go to their dad's, so after the baby is in bed, I will be on my couch watching a MOVIE for once, instead of the same old TV shows. And I will be eating sweets guilt-free while drinking a hot cup of chamomile tea! 

Thanks for the idea! Can't wait for my date with myself tonight!!

I am single and spent 99% of the summer with my kids. 

so after they started school, I choose a day to go walk around a beautiful town by myself,  to meander along the waterfront, to browse great little boutiques and to treat myself to a leisurely lunch at an organic cafe . It was relaxing and refreshing and recharging all at the same time!

 It's Friday so I will probably stay up later and have a glass of wine and read this book I've been wanting to finish up on but just haven't had time.  That sounds like a plan!!  : )
