moms free time

What is your favorite thing to do when the kids go back to school?

Finally, there is time to give the house a thorough cleaning, catch up on bills, or sort through clothes to give away those that no longer fit. I really need to do all those things…and more…but they can wait. I have other priorities to fit in those first few weeks of school for the kids.

These are my favorite “chores” to do when I have some time to myself (in no particular order):
  1. Enjoy my coffee
  2. Take a long shower
  3. Eat an apple without sharing
  4. Read a book
  5. Fold laundry leisurely while watching TV
  6. Go shopping by myself
  7. Sink into the internet
  8. Start a craft project
  9. Chat on the phone with an old friend for an hour
  10. Take a nap.

“Me” time helps me to feel refreshed and replenished – and when my kids arrive home after school I am energized and ready to help them with homework and take them to their activities. The truth is that the house is really quiet when they are gone all day and I miss them.
