Here are a few ways I enjoy spending my "Me Time."
We don't go to movies very often but I love watching a late night movie at home. I usually watch one as I'm getting the baby to fall asleep but sometimes I am just in the mood to stay up extra late and watch a good show. Our library actually has a great selection of movies...can't beat free movies!
I love baking! Always have. Cooking is a whole different thing that I don't love so much but I love baking goodies. It's completely calming to me.
Exercise is something that I love but have the hardest time doing. I do Pilates everyday at home but getting to the gym is another story. However, once I am there I find it hard to leave, especially since my gym has a cardio cinema and I get sucked into whatever movie happens to be on.
Blessed sleep. I have always loved sleeping. For a while though it's been a certain time of sleep that I love so much. In the mornings I get up with Mark and make him lunch to take to work. After he leaves I get back in bed and enjoy another quiet hour before the baby wakes up. I don't always do that if I have a busy day but I seriously look forward to that one hour each morning. There's just something nice about going back to bed.
And, last but not least
Reading. Before I had kids I used to read all the time. I loved it. I still love it but don't seem to have as much time to do it. When the baby was still quite small I would stay up at night and read while she tried to go to sleep. These days I just have to sneak it in where I can. I just started Pillars of the Earth. So far so good.
