Offiical rules here. Sweeps ends 12/12.
I love treating myself to a mani/pedi when I can! I normally have my mom take DS for a few hours so I can spend the day doing my own thing, such as a mani/pedi, and maybe some shopping too.
If you knew how lonely my life has been
And how long I've been so alone
And if you knew how I wanted someone to come along
And change my life the way you've done
To relax, I like to turn on my music and head to the gym! Even if I don't work out hard just moving while listening to music is a great de-stresser. Once the baby comes I'm hoping I can still fit time into my schedule for workouts!
I am a firm believe in "me time" and I try to do something like a bath with bubbles and candles, a chapter in a book or a massage to get in that time. I have an infant so it's never about me anymore =) I am ok with that!
I had a girls afternoon with my Mother and Sister in law a couple of weeks ago that was great. We had a really nice pedicure and lunch together (and MIL picked up the tab!).
Usually I relax by working on a Xmas stocking for DS#2 while DS#1 naps.
To relax I watch a movie with a frozen dinner and hot drink. It takes no time at all to get ready and I get to lay on the couch by myself for at least an hour and a half...ahhh :)
As a treat I lose myself in a Harry Potter book.
Being a SAHM of a very busy almost 3 year old, I don't have much time for relaxation. And being on a tight budget, I don't really ever get to slurge on myself. Toilet paper, kleenex, and a bathroom hamper are on the top of my Christmas list. I would love to spend time at a spa, especailly with this pregnancy, since my back is about to give out and my figure has been long gone.
