1) To avoid misunderstandings and conflict make sure you have said all of that to your husband. By discussion he should realise that you have been burried under the role of wife, homemaker and mother for too long. You need to re-establish yoruself as an individual, to be YOU<br />
<br />
2) Make sure he knows you still love him, this isnt the first step in leaving or divorce, you just want a little YOU time. <br />
<br />
3) With all of that resolved - what do you want to do? Is there an interest, group, hobby, that you gave up or drifted away from when marriage and motherhood demanded too much time? If so get back in touch and pick it up again. IF not - look at your life - what are you interested in - or what do you want to try? <br />
<br />
4) Make a short list and look into it. How about ARRT - you could look up local courses and start taking painting lessons, soemthing you can do at home in the garage or spare room when you have time, and when you make time. Something you can drop if there is family emergenncy (little Susan fell and cut her knee and needs immediate attention etc). <br />
<br />
5) With that short list, find out who, where, when, how much etc. Look at what most appeals and go for it <br />
<br />
Art<br />
Writing<br />
Quilting / Knitting / dressmaking etc <br />
Voluntary work<br />
Part time office job<br />
etc etc etc <br />
<br />
6) GOOD LUCK - I would be interested to know what you take up?

Do what I did; make friends at the gym. My hubby works weekends and two weekday nights. So I go to the gym when my daughter is at school and one night when my hubby is home. I've made some really nice friends, we also go swimming together and take our children out together when schools out.<br />
<br />
If you're not into the gym or anything of that nature, start from scratch. What do you like doing? Once you've decided, check for any clubs or associations in your area, if applicable.
