my weekemd started off friday with having to do all the things to get my daugher signed up for kindergarden!! it was both exciting and sad at the same time. we got a lot accomplished that day!! well my husband and i are usually in the same room on our own computers in our own little world until we decide we want to g to bed! well this particular night he gets off and starts a movie for us and i was able to get the kids to lay down pretty easy and early!! it wasnt much but it was special to me!! well saturday we ended up over at my grandmas house to sit with her while my aunt did some errands around town. i typed up the poems my grandma wanted printed out while my husband did a lot of things for her like hang pictues on the walls, clean the garage, deice the freezer, ect. usually after a day like this me and my husband come home and we get on our computers...which we did..but he got on and got right back off started us another movie and curled up to me and said its been a while since we did this. i was so happy and we were able to once again get the kids in bed on time!! so we watched 2 movies and then drifted off to sleep. well my sunday got even better!! it started out with my husband wanting to go by his moms for a little while today..but..funny thing is she called right before we were about to leave anyways to say that she wanted to keep BOTH of our children for the day!! ok that may not sound like much to many people but for me and my husband it is a lot because this rarely ever happens!! well we told her we would just bring them by that she didnt have to come get them. we stayed for a few hours and she gave us a bnch of pictures in frames of our kids to put on our walls!!! at home it was an empy house and i had made plans to keep up and do all that today but it just didnt feel right. my husband borrowed a movie from his mom and we cuddled and watched movies and walked to the school and listened to music in the car and so much more and that may not seem like a lot but we dont have the money to go out and do a lot so to me this is perfect!! well after this weekend and my husband not sleeping well last night he fell asleep in his chair while the kids were watching the Smurf movie. after that i bathed them and put them to bed a little early than bed time!! this is wieird for them but great for me! i guess they wore them selves out they had been outside pretty mch all day since the temperature was warmer than it has been!! well now here i am just me awake at a decent hour enjoying the pece and quiet and mylotting here and there and playing games on facebook!! doenst happen much so i am saoking it all in!! do you ever get time like this?? how was your weekend?? what would you say is your perfect weekend??? as a parent or single do you ever get "ME" time?? What do you do with it??

Me time! In our hectic, busy lifestyles that we lead, it's very hard to actually find some real quality time to ourselves, and we get it, we want to make the most of it and enjoy every single moment. My weekend consists of the usual routine, wolfie is a man of routine, I hate Saturdays, so I spend some time at the gym, and I catch up on my soaps I've missed during the week. My mum's away this weekend at her sisters, so I use her room to relax in, I am trying to spend less time on the internet now, now that I have deleted my Facebook account, stopped playing games online and stopped affiliate marketing, I have freed up a lot of time to do what I used to do before the internet took over and that's get my head into a good book! Any quality time I have to myself I read, I was a true bookworm prior to finding the internet and I want to get back to reading. I got a book out of the library, I like biographies and I am reading Denise Welch, (she's a UK actress) and it was lovely to be able to start reading again. Hope you made the most out of your ME time my friend and will get more ME time in the future. Enjoy

it is very rare for me to ever get free time. yes i try to take full advantage of my free time and relax and do things i do not normally get the time for. my weekend is never a routine even if i tried to make it one things come up so fast and so quckly that my plans change just as fast. i am sure that if i did the same as you i would free up a lot of time also. that is sort of what my husband and i did this weekend. yes we got online a few times but not for long period of times and it really opened up a lot of things that we could do and enkjoy. its been a long time since we spent time togehter like that! i loved it and hope to see more of this in the future. i also use to read a lot more before i was on this site and facebook and all that. i had a whole book case full of books but most of them have gotten messed up. i am just recwntly getting new books to put in it. i have a bunch i havent read at all yet!! thank you i think i really made te best of my ME time and i hope to get more in the future. it was well over due and it helped me relieve stress and really unwind.
