"Trying" being the key word

So I realized that my little quote here on this blog has something to do with me "trying" to do things to remind myself I'm not just a Mom. I guess "trying" is the key word. I need to "try" harder. Although the month just started, I haven't done one thing that hasn't been for or included my kids. We went to a few BBQ's over the Labor Day weekend...but we took our kids to all of them (at one they were the "entertainment"). We've been to softball games, and the park and even though the park day was kinda for me (I wanted to see if my 4 year old would get tired enough to take a nap--no such luck) the kids still got to have fun too. I guess what I am "trying" to say is: I NEED TO TRY HARDER! Any suggestions that don't include waking up early (I'm NOT a morning person) would be greatly appreciated!

I don't have any advice (although if you get some good suggestions, be sure to pass them along!) but I think it's more difficult to do your own thing when your kids are little. You have to find sitters or schedule it without your spouse (so he can stay with the kids). It's not just you who fills this way. And, someday, we'll find "ourselves" again.

Good luck with that. It's so hard to find time for yourself, especially to do something that you really 100% like (not just something that we know is good for us) I find it hard to justify finding a sitter just so you can go get your nails done, I feel less guilty if I leave them to do something productive, like groceries or an annual exam! So I don't know what to tell you, other than you're not alone.
