I have a decent walk leaving my building which gives me some time along with my ipod (also a handy excuse to ignore pan handlers and pervies) which helps make the walk pleasant. BUT, the best part of heading home is picking up my son from the daycare. The teachers are always happy to chat for a bit and get some adult conversation (me, too), and my son thrives there. I have little notes from the instructors about what their classes did, which gives us something to talk about on the drive home.
I also do a grocery store wander. That relaxes me. We wander up and down every aisle, trying to think of something different and easy to have, and we talk about things we see, etc. I have never rushed a shopping trip with him, so he's used to it and just rolls with it.
But, I will admit that I do sometimes save up a little rant to share with DH once the little one is in his bath. But, once I get it out, I'm over it. (I did have to explain to my husband, I'm just ranting, I don't want advice.
now it's perfect)
Oh, and our gym advertised 15 minute chair massages for $15, but, when I went to make an appointment for one after a stressful day... they said there wasn't enough demand, so they only kept it for a month. sheesh.
