Do you regularly schedule MFT?

I don't, but I need to. Generally speaking I take free time when I've reached the end of my rope! I will usually tell my hubby that I need some "me" time and I head out the door. Usually I just go grocery shopping or run some errands but even an hour or so to myself is helpful.

I'm right there with you..... I must say a few months ago my DH joined a indoor soccer league... and I didn't say anything-- but inside I was rather p.o. I mean... really? but, then I had to say to myself-- and WHY don't YOU do something? Alas, I haven't figured out what that is yet.... but I hope to soon !!!

Oh, I'd probably feel the same way. Why is it that we don't do those things for ourselves? Oh, I know... guilt! I feel guilty whenever I take time for myself. It's hard to get past that feeling. Even knowing that I'm a better mom and wife when I do take the time for myself, it is still hard!

Rarely, though I know I should. It's just almost impossible. Free time is maybe a quick shower or like now when I'm reading the board when I should be in bed!

That's pathetic, isn't it?

I have barely any free time. As for money what little.I.do have gets spent on the kids.

Thursday mornings both of my kids are in school together for 2 1/2 hours and DH is at work, That is my free time.. For that couple hours I go to the library unless there is something that really needs to be done. Some times it feels like I am being selfish but it doesn't cost anything and I get a little down time. Except for those couple hours I am always with the kids or DH. DH works 6 days a week and goes in late a couple days a week. But not thursday is his meeting morning. So when the kids are in school DH is home and there is always something "we" have to do.
