In answer to the question, if I had a day to myself, I would...
- Go shopping at a thrift store or consignment store.
- Go to the library.
- Go to a small, local coffee shop.
All of these, I'm able to do with my daughter. Okay, it might not be as peaceful, but I went thrift store shopping on Saturday and bought 6 items of clothing for my daughter and it came to less than $10. I went to the library last Tuesday with her. No I'm not able to go and look for hours upon hours, but she does let me look around for myself, as well as her. Going to a coffee shop is harder because my daughter does not sit still, but it's still doable. I go running with my daughter at least a few times a week.
Ultimately, many of the things I'd do on my own, I'm still able to do with my daughter and/or husband. And, I would not trade that for peace and quiet.
