parenting funk....
I know we all get it. There are just some times when enough is enough. We need a break. and we need it NOW.

Im in a funk and my usual pick me up (a bit of time to myself - usually crafting) isnt cutting it. Usually its enough for me to recharge and be good for a while again.

What do you do when you are in a funk? What gets you out of it?

My funk usually means DH and I need some time together. It has been a while, but that's usually what works for me.

A little getaway, with or without kids, can work wonders! I love to go camping with DH and DS for a night or 2 just to get away and out into nature. Clears my head, we all reconnect away from housework and computers and tv...fabulous stuff! You don't even have to go far, we sometimes camp just 20 min from home so it doesn't have to be time consuming or expensive.:goodvibes:

I'm in the funk right now and having DH gone for 2 weeks in Conn is not HELPING!

I do try to give myself some quiet time when they are all asleep to unwind, that is either being in my sewing room, on the computer, or watching HGTV!

But DH is going to owe me BIG Time when he gets back and I'm going to get a massage and we will be having a HUGE date night ... did I mention he will be gone for my big 3-0 bday :(

A looooong Saturday afternoon by myself, followed by dinner out (or at the ILs) where someone else entertains the kid and cooks/cleans, so that all I have to do is enjoy my kiddo.
