Moms Need a Day Off Too!

~ Erika of This Christian

Do you ever get to the point where you find yourself standing in the middle of the house saying; I NEED A VACATION!!

Sure you have--we all have!

Moms need a day off once in a while--but how do we go about getting precious time to ourselves?

Explain to your hubby that you're burnt out and you need some time to yourself.

Get into the car and take the day doing whatever you enjoy--

Some suggestions

  • Go to a day spa with a friend
  • Do some shopping--just for YOU, not the kids, not your husband, not grandma
  • Make a lunch date with your best friend and take in a movie after eating
  • Spend some alone time at your local park, bring along a good book or magazine

If you're budget is tight
Set aside twenty dollars for yourself and:

  • Purchase your favorite lotion or perfume
  • Go to thrift shops and see what treasures you can discover
  • Buy yourself a gourmet coffee and slice of peanut butter/chocolate pie
  • Buy some new nail polish or makeup
  • Get yourself a new book at the bookstore
  • Get a haircut--you'll feel like a new woman!
  • Visit the library and take out a book or DVD (FREE!)

Even if you only get out of the house for a few hours; it will make a difference in how you feel.

Bring along some praise music for your trip in the car and just enjoy the quiet car ride--the beauty of the great outdoors (instead of staring at your four walls in the house), and most of all, relax! If you're lucky, your dear husband will have the kids fed, bathed and into bed by the time you get home...

And then you woke up--right?

Well, we can't have it all, but there are things you can do to take the day off to enjoy yourself.

You're worth it Mom!
