1) Can anyone share how did you squeeze out ME TIME? :?
2) And what did you do during ME TIME? :idea:

other than kids time and couple time and work time and house time. trying to maintain ME TIME is quite tough at times.

When kids sleeping? when all are sleeping? during kids enrichment class time? etc?

It is very impt to have ME TIME. its quiet time to some, its self reflection time for some, its relax time for some. ME TIME allows you to relax and recharge.

Please share. :rahrah:

My weekdays ME TIME is morning before office hours, I go to hair salon for shampoo and blow. Hair salons at RP open as early as 7am, it's there that I catch my morning cuppa and browse the daily papers. I am usually not in the mood to chat in the morning, reading papers is the best hide out :lol:

Weekly facial and meni pedi at either Thursday or Friday evening, if I have more time to spare I will have my body massage too. My girls will go over to my mom's place for sleep over every Friday night.

At least once a week I will have dinner with guests or friends with or without hubby.

I get my 100% me time when I travel for business, I have never brought my children along on these business trips.

My girls are early sleepers, by 9.30pm we will have our couple time and it's also semi me time, watch cable shows, read, surf, chat, in between texting, hugging and kissing, haha.

That's pretty much all.

Basically I consider ME time as not having a fixed schedule, free & easy to do anything I want during those hours.

Mine is in the morning. No need to set alarm, wake up whenever. Then make coffee, throw the clothes into washing machine, sit down to sip my coffee and read kiasuparents & manga while machine is spinning, after that hang the laundry. Sometimes I prep lunch, most days I don't because kids stayed back in school.

Other than that, I attend exercise classes together with hubby twice a week. Meet my best friend for karoke/movie once a month or once every two months.

Mine is selected weekdays afternoon after one boy leave for school and before the other returns. I tune in to the tv program available or I nap. I never understand why those audiences love Ellen or Dr Oz until I tune into their shows! Their enthusiasm are so infectious!

My ME time not that shiok compared to Harlequin and sleepy :wink:

Wake up at 6 together with kids. After they leave for school, flat is all mine. Mornings, surf Net, come to kiasuparents to yak...10am, housework. Prepare simple lunch at 11am. Wash loo and shower.

Actually mornings till 12pm are completely mine to decide what I want to do...but don't have luxury of going anywhere as i have to rush back (mon-thur). Much as I want to window shop, retail operations start at 10am...then have to rush home for daughter...no fun.

I love Fridays :rahrah: ...son has CCA till 6pm and hubby will pick him. I can take a bus to town first...then at 1, parents will pick daughter from school and then join me for lunch. No need to rush to get homework done.

I have my me time between 11am to 12pm (usually read newspapers/go on Kiasuparents/watch drama/leisure lunch) and after 9.30pm on most weekdays (supper with DH).
On weekends, I can have me time after 7pm. I also go for facials/pedicures/manicures/meet friends on Tuesdays when I have lesser lessons.

I am looking forward to having some fun out of the 4 walls...maybe when both kids have CCA next year...and there is no need to rush back for lunch.
Window shopping is really relaxing.

Talking about hard sell, I just scolded someone who tried to hard sell me some facial package a few days ago. I literally told her to get out of the room (I was having facial at that time).
