Sassy | 6 comments So I am married, mother of 3, two still at home, I work 40+ hours a week and the weekends are chores driven! How do I get reading time in! Any Suggestions? And at night before bed is out! I fall asleep right away! HELP

stormhawk | 66 comments Bathroom, lunch at work, the few minutes you have to yourself when you wake up, standing in line at the supermarket (pick a long line with big cartsfuls of stuff), text-to-speech while you're cooking or dusting or doing laundry or driving ...

There is always a way.

How old are the kids?

Sassy | 6 comments 15, 17, & 20 (not at home)! Oh and my 53 year too! You know the bathroom came to mind last night. Just go in there and close the door. They usually leave me alone then! Thank you for the good ideas!

Snatch minutes while in the queue for any thing, if you are collecting someone arrive early and read while you wait. In the lift (go up and down a few times). Hold a book while cooking and insist soup needs to be stirred continually. Bathroom anywhere. Have hope - they will eventually all leave home (except the baby-husband) and you will have TIME. And miss them.

If I have a good book/E.read I can be hovering and I could listen to my Kindle if I wished but we all need that time out for our selves
