Finding ways to make time for myself5:00 AM

I'm either busy doing mommy/wife things and the other time is dedicated to running my business. My husband knows this and so each week he makes sure that I get some time just to do something for myself. To make it easier on him, I'll leave just as the baby goes down for her nap and I can jet off to do whatever I would like. I either do something like get my nails done, do a Target run or most of the time, I go shopping! I love shopping by myself. As much I love shopping with friends or with my husband. When I'm by myself I never feel rushed and spend all the time I want looking at whatever I want! I find it so relaxing!
I'm also lucky that my parents live nearby and my in laws live close enough that they drive over at least once a month. It's definitely a win-win for everyone as my daughter gets grandma/grandpa time and I get a full day just for me! Don't get me wrong, I work more than anyone I know and I usually don't take a day off in the middle of the week just to go shopping. Most of the time when they are in town, I go to the office and just end up working all day. I've finally come to a point where I have realized that taking time for myself to not work, not be stressed, just to enjoy time by myself is something that is needed. The last time they came up, I scheduled a much-needed haircut and then did a bit of shopping!
