Do you ever just want to run away???

I love being a Mom but sometimes all the Why's and How does it work? and the many other questions and pleading that bombard me during the day just makes me want to run away to a beachhut or mountain cabin somewhere and have peace and quiet for a day or two.  Of course, that is not possible, so what do you do to recharge and energize yourself the face the next part of the day or tomorrow when all you energy has run out.  I find sometimes it can be as simple as a great big hug, time out for a bubble bath--sometimes they will leave you alone in the bathroom.  Other times my wonderful husband will take care of them all so I can go to a scrapbook crop or something to inspire my creativity without six little hands asking to join in. It is in these times that I can reflect on all the joy and happiness that these 3 not so little anymore children at almost 12, almost 8 and 6 1/2 have brought into my life and how empty it would seem if I was really to run away to that beach house or mountain cabin and I am ready to face the next day.  What do you do to recharge??????


  1. I do think "me time" is so important for us moms. I enjoy a chick flick with a cherry coke and some buttery p-corn or a quiet minute to scrap.

  2. My daughter is now almost 22 and living on her own, but I watch kids before and after school. While they are gone I definitely take some "me" time. I knit, read a lot! and I like to just take a walk around our property and look at the flowers and wild life maybe take some pictures for my blog, haha oh yeah, and I blog!

    I also love coffee! Sometimes I just sit in the livingroom and space out with a cup of coffee.

  3. I find doing some crafts or blogging really helps me unwind.

    Great Blog and I'm now a follower :)
