My mind is racing with ideas... Rest is important to maintain a mom's health... So how do you switch it on & off?”

  • That is a tough one. I am "fortuante" that I have Wednesday nights to myself. My son's father and I are divorced, and he spends the night with his father on Wednesday nights. My fiance works out of town during the week, so these are my "testosterone free" nights, as I always put it. I use these nights to eat whatever I want for dinner instead of preparing a full blown meal (I usually stick with something frozen that I can throw in the oven). I watch my favorite TV shows that I miss on their regular nights. We have a garden tub in the master bathroom, so I light candles, run a steaming hot bubble bath, and grab whatever book I am reading at the moment and relax in the tub for as long as possible. I then take care of the rest of my usual before bed routine (putting the dogs to bed, laying out work clothes, etc.) and head to bed. However, I know that not all couples are divorced, and that not all parents pick their children up when they are "supposed" to. But this is how I do it.
