Finding ways to make time for myself

This post is sponsored by Skinny Cow®
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!

I’m such a mom these days I always keep snack in my purse even for myself!  Got to indulge in a bit of yummy Caramel Divine Filled Chocolates before I headed home.
I admit, it took me awhile to get to the point where I could feel like I could leave my daughter and not feel guilty.  Especially to do something for myself, I just felt terrible for leaving her.  I now realize how important it is to give her time with other people and to give me time just by myself.  I don’t like paying for childcare just to do something for myself which is why I try to take advantage of any grandparent time (thankfully my parents are nearby and always willing to take care of their grandbaby) or just to work out a schedule with my husband so that each of us gets to do something that we enjoy on our own time.
