ME TIME. Time Out for Mom.

This was brought up by a blogger on Social Moms but I wanted to share it here as well.
What do you do for "Me Time"? - How do you treat yourself during a busy day? What part of the day is your "me time"? How long do you take time out for yourself? Do you like to read a book? exercise? What is your "me time"? Do you like spending a day at the Spa? Quiet at home relaxing?

Great topic! I know I've heard the words before. And I often wish and dream about it. But in all doesn't happen often. Before I became a Mom, I thought it was going to be so easy to say when I wanted Me Time. NOT!
These days ME TIME is usually a spa day or mani/pedi. Depending on how long I have a trip to the local casino, shopping or just lunch or dinner with the girls...without talking about my kids! That's the hard part. =) My Husband and I try to plan it out when he goes out with the boys to the desert, I take the kids to the In-Laws and spend the day doing what I want to do.
I wish I could say I could have daily ME TIME like a cup of quiet with peace and quiet, but it never works out. I can plan for it, but it rarely ever gets there. If  I do have a daily me time it's something like a cup of coffee while reading blogs (with the noise of the kids playing behind me), updating my blogs or just browsing the internet. It's the simple things but I'll take what I can get. Some things I like to do or have for myself:
  • A cup of coffee and my laptop
  • A dessert
  • Mani/pedi
  • A few hours of shopping without the kids
  • Pressing my luck at the local Casinos
  • Lunch or Dinner with my girlfriends
  • Catching up on DVR'd shows without noise or interruption
  • Scrapbooking
I would love to hear how other Moms spend their ME TIME. What do you do for your Me Time?
