Me-time

photoIn the last year I have been learning a lot about rhythms and balance. Adding a baby to life will do that to you. Of all my momma responsibilities, I often save myself for last. I guess that is normal, but it is not good.

This morning I sit alone in our home. It is quiet. This does not happen often. We had a date night last night, so baby spent the night at grandparent’s and husband went to share breakfast. I slept 2 1/2 hours later than normal and now sit with a blanket, coffee, and my computer. Ah. Fantastic.

I am wondering how I can get more of this. Any ideas?

I have social life built into my rhythms, but me-time usually ends up being 10:00 – 11:00 p.m. at night watching TV and trying not to fall asleep on the couch. Maybe a monthly date night will mean a monthly quiet morning?┬áLet’s hope.
