Small Talk Six: Time to Relax

Over at Small Talk Six, today’s topic is “6 things you do, used to do, or would like to do to relax.” You can answer this with a list of 6 words, 6 phrases, 6 sentences, 6 paragraphs, 6 photos, 6 videos, etc...

I can say, first of all, it's been a long time since I've really gotten a chance to relax, but when I had time for it...

1. I loved a nice hot bubble bath (without people banging on the door, yelling through it, or barging in to add toys to my water).

2. I loved to read. Anything and everything. Give me a good book and I was content until the last page.

3. I would snowboard. Something about being out in the mountains by yourself is so relaxing.

4. I loved to drive. Just to drive. I would pick a direction and just go.

5. I used to write poetry. It was an easy way to get all my thoughts out and put my mind at ease. I only wrote for myself, and that was all that mattered.

6. Before having my little one, I would nap for hours out in a hammock. So peaceful.

Even though I can say I don't get a lot of time to rest or relax anymore, I still wouldn't change it for anything.

Relaxing in the bathtub seems to be universal.:-)

When we lived in New Mexico we would always take a drive to Durango, CO every Sunday! It was fun, the kids would fall asleep & so relaxing.

Napping out on a hammock sounds so relaxing.

I use to write poetry a long time ago too. It was an amazing outlet for me. My aunt borrowed my poems once because she wanted to read them. I had a whole 3" binder full of them. She lost them and I never saw them again. It was a big loss for me.

Yes, driving is the best. I always just want to get in the car and just drive. Turn some music on and just go! Happy Saturday!

Napping is the best ever and I completely missed that one on my blog.

I love driving by myself, too!

I find that getting my nails done is relaxing and something for ME. Ever since I've had kids, the bubble bath has not happened.

Sounds like a great list. I've never thought of snowboarding as relaxing... more like life-threatening the way my body works, but if it works.... =)

Wow, I bet you're very good at poetry!

I’m reaching out to all the Moms on my blog role to tell you about a new Momtrends feature. Every Monday I will be posting Mommy Time Monday. This is a chance for other bloggers to link up and share something they’ve done in the past week. The idea is to promote carving out “me-time” without the kids and to inspire other moms to do the same. After all, this time spent with friends or pursuing a passion/hobby keep us moms sane. I hope you’ll stop by and join in the fun.

I would love to be in a bubble bath or a hammock with a good book. I used to write poetry also - definitely something that falls by the wayside when you get busy.
