Me Time (& A Vlog Link Up)

I have been a mother for over 11 years now.  That means that I know....nothing. Except that alone time, me time, quiet time, whatever you want to call it is extremely rare.  And usually, I'm pretty cool with that.  I'm a chaos kind of chic.  

But lately, I've been digging quiet a little more.  Maybe it's because I'm getting older and all my kids are getting louder and wearing me down and out. Maybe it's because they usually all talk at the same time.  

My new found old lady love of quietness is a perfect fit with my new found alone time.  Wade started preschool a couple weeks ago and it's been pretty damn great.  So great that I'm sharing all the details in my latest MomPulse vlog. 

I linked up with the amazing MamaKat (check her out, she is FUNNY).  Each week she has a list of vlog prompts and this week one of them was to talk about "Me Time."

Here's what I know:

  1. LOVE IT!!! I know just what you mean - I put my youngest in preschool 3 days a week. It's been 3 weeks and it is amazing. I loved your feeling like a 12-year-old comment - that's so true. No husband, no kids... yeah, you nailed. Rock on! You'll find your soul... try taking The Passion Test and see where it takes you.

  2. Oh, I love you. You're like an episode of Mom's Gone Wild.

  3. Me time is good with or without the wine. You totally have a soul! Yay for me time.

  4. Your video is so great! Me Time is the best! My youngest started Kindergarten this year, and I thought I would be sad, but it's also been great to have some Me Time.

  5. I craved me time especially when my kid's friends came over too...and stayed...and stayed...and...OMG how did I keep my sanity.
    I loved seeing you dancing and drinking out of the carton is a total hoot.
    I am sure you need to hide that part of the video from your kids. You go girl!
