Me Time

Two of my favorite "mommy blogs" are featuring just-for-mom products during their "Mom Time in 09" giveaway. (See the button on my sidebar). In the spirit of "Mom Time" they've asked what we do to find Me Time. So.....here's what I do!

1)I set aside time each night after the kids are in bed to read. I'm a voracious reader, putting 2-3 books a week under my belt. There's nothing I enjoy more than curling up and getting lost in a good book. I like any and all genres...mystery, suspense, science fiction, classics, inspirational...With the recent cold weather, I've been spending my book time in a hot bath (and dreaming of the day my refurbished clawfoot tub gets moved out of the garage and into my bathroom!)

2)Another thing I do is set aside time during Addie's nap to spend online. I really enjoy entering giveaways; it's exciting to me because I seem to win A LOT. Three things in the last two weeks alone! Plus I love finding out about new companies and products, especially those geared towards natural parenting. So I let Amelia have a little TV or movie time and sit down with my laptop and Diet Coke for about a half hour in the afternoons.

So what do YOU do to find Me Time? Or maybe you need to rededicate yourself to renewing your spirit every day. If so, let me know how you plan to accomplish that! And check out the links below to enter all the great mommy giveaways.
