Me-Time is in abundance this week. I have already started a list of things I want to do while I await my kiddos return from their summer break with their dad. Mr. M just left this morning with his sons for a week long visit to see family in Maryland, so the me-time just multiplied.
As a single mom, one of the things I had to conquer from the very beginning was how I would use the time I had alone when the kiddos were at their dad’s house. In the early stages with no ‘relationship’ of interest I found myself lonely instead of utilizing that time to pursue interests that had been buried during my past.
Now all these years later I manage this time as a source of productivity. This week, I have a list of small projects I may (or may not) get done during my free time/me-time as well as some overdue pampering. Reading and writing is definitely ranked high as well as some touch-up painting needed on baseboards after the floors were refinished.
Mid-week I have a special treat planned: an appointment for my first ever therapeutic massage after work. Thanks to my best friend, TB for a gift card to a nearby day spa, I get to have this treat. (The gift card should have been used months ago, since I got it for Christmas. Finally I have the me-time to do so.)
What are some extra-special things you like to do during your me-time?
