Mommy style pick-me-up

What sort of way do you treat yourself for your hard work as a mom? I am totally dragging by the evening of each day and need some ideas that don't include food! hee hee! Between my daycare, my daughter and being preggo, I am too tired to even think of my own idea.

Re: Mommy style pick-me-up

I get on here and just zone out in a forum for a few minutes

I have long hair that I hardly ever style anymore, usually just throwing it into a ponytail. But sometimes I take the time to use a deep conditioner in the shower, and I have to say my hair looks radiant afterward! This makes me feel good, since I've always felt a woman's hair was one of her most useful assets!

Bath and a good book! I try to have my favorite bath product on hand (Lush) and treat myself to some alone time- just me and a book!

Getting some time away from the house. I am really good at window shopping I love some clearance aisles at Target

Also, a good book does wonders for me.

Audio books. Our library has these Playaway things which are like MP3 player-style audio books, just plug in headphones.

That, a dark room, and laying down on the bed to rest are very helpful.
