Ahhh... alone time. That coveted dream of many parents (and some non-parents too I'm sure!)
I do try to find time for myself:
- I purposely get up 30 minutes before Hilary and Liam so that I can be alone. That is as much for their safety and well being as it is mine. I am NOT a morning person and need that alone time with my coffee before I am ready to talk to others and start the day.
- When we aren't in the middle of a bus strike, I consider my hour long bus commute "me-time" because I can throw on my iPod, listen to music of my choice and read my book.
- I've been trying to exercise for 30 minutes after work each day, so that is some time by myself.
- I also head to bed before Hilary so I get some "me" TV time then too.
I'm hoping once the weather warms up to be able to get out for walks or bike rides. I would love more time to read or blog, or chat on the phone with friends, but alas, there are only so many hours in the day.
I'm sure I could do better and I will certainly start making the effort.
