Im a mom of twin girls, Full time. Father is not around.

How do you ladies keep up with the cleaning, washing, cooking, playing?

Im going to school and working. Its just so much, I get a break here and there. But when I cant I would love to have a "At Home Relaxing Activity" for Myself. I tend to think too much of my "situation" and how I have to raise my daughters alone, it can get to me sometimes so I always try to stay positive and remind myself that I will make it.. =]

Any Ideas on how to relax and drift away from the crazyness of my schedule?

Yoga? Meditation? Movie Nights?

Unfortunately I dont have any suggestions for you cause I never get any me time lol. Every now and then when I can manage to stay up after they go to bed I try & read cause it relaxes me!

I'm a full time g'ma of 4&5 y/o boys who were recently both diagnosed as ADHD and odd, so its like multiples. I've only been with them full time for 7 months, but it feels like forever most days. I wake up each morning and feel overwhelmed and dread getting up because I know there's no way I can get everything done that day. After a couple of pity party minutes, I get up and start doing what has to be done, usually on autopilot. Somehow we always make it to 8pm and bedtime. I work until 900 when my daughter gets off work, then I quit and after resting a minute usually realize that somehow I've done the impossible and gotten just about everything that needed to be done. Then I relax and meditate a while before going to bed. I did that 7 days a week for 5 months when I finally announced I needed a life and that I was taking at least 1 but usually 2 full nights for me time and it has helped immensely. As hard as it is and even though I feel like walking away and not coming back at least once a day, I love those boys more than anything and can't imagine doing anything else right now.

I have 1 yr old twin boys and a 2 1/2 year old daughter. It's basically a juggling act, though I'm blessed to have support from family. I wrap up my associates in paralegal studies in August, I have 2 terms left of online school. I feel like I have mommy shift during the day till bed time and I'm student till 1:30/2:00 AM. It's worth it, so I can have a good career and be able to support my kids.

To relax: catch up on my favorite tv shows when I don't have to watch Bubble Guppies or Dora, I want to begin yoga, and I read a lot (got a Kindle for Christmas)
