If you have not had any "me" time lately I highly recommend it. My schedule used to be such that I was guaranteed at least a morning to get stuff done and have a bit of time to do what I wanted and not have a toddler at my heels. This week was the 1st week in over 3 months that I have had such a time, and it was glorious.
Due to scheduling, it wasn't so much a day as an afternoon, but hey, it totally worked! I didn't do much. I ignored all of the dishes in the sink and the laundry that needed to be put away. I ignored the huge list of things to do before baby comes, even though it is becoming more pressing everyday. I caught up on a TV show or two, took a nap and goofed off online without guilt. I needed it! I would have started the next book on my list, but a nap was much needed for this prego. Heck, I even had a good and needed cry. It energized me to the point where when my hubby and baby boy got back home, I was able to fully engage with them and connect. It was marvelous. I highly encourage you to take a "me" afternoon. It will make you a better homemaker in the long run. Here are some fun things you can do:
Go on a walk
Sit outside and stare at the sky
Read a book
Take a nap
Bake something for FUN
Do a fun project
Sit and drink a hot beverage while it is still hot (a rarity in my home)
Go to stores you love, and window shop
Get a pedi/mani
Take a uninterrupted bubble bath
See, there are lots of fun things to do! What is your favorite "me time" activity?
