This is probably the oldest way of relaxing known to woman!
I fill my bath to the brim with my favorite bubble bath or if I can, lavender essential oils! Put on some soft music, grab my favorite book, LOCK the door and have a nice long soak! And hubby and the kids get threatened with murder if I hear so much as one ; mom!!! Or Lovey- where's the remote or some such!

I don't do this every day, just catch a shower in the morning before the rush begin but once a week I make some me time, and I firmly believe that me time is what stops us wives and mother's from becoming raving lunatics!
