I found this article on Baby center. I think we all should try to make time for ourselves once in a while. I know it's so hard sometimes.
All parents have moments — or even whole days — when they feel they cannot wash one more sticky hand, pick up one more pile of cast-off belongings, or summon the energy for one more rendition of "Old MacDonald." At such times, you may think the only answer is a one-way ticket to somewhere, anywhere (leaving no forwarding address, of course). It's probably more realistic to acknowledge that you're simply suffering from parental burnout. You need to take a real break, and do something just for yourself.We asked our readers what they do to take care of themselves. How do stressed mothers relax, regroup, re-energize, and avoid burnout? We received a variety of responses, but whichever activity they choose, most of our readers agree that it's best to do it without your children. Mothers say this time to themselves helps restore their appreciation of their children and their energy for being a mom.
1) A warm soak
A long bubble bath with candles, music, and a good book was a favorite escape for many of our moms
2) Body work
Some form of physical pampering: Readers suggested a manicure, a pedicure, a massage, a facial, or a new hairdo.
3) A night on the town
A "date" with Dad will give you both a break — and a chance to get reacquainted
4) Adult conversation
Dinner or an outing with a friend provides a change of pace, a new perspective, a fresh experience — and adult conversation.
5) Healthy indulgences
A walk in the fresh air, a bike ride on a deserted street, a run on the beach — these are a few of our readers' healthy indulgences
6) Deep sleep
The chance to sleep late in the morning, or enjoy an afternoon nap — any kind of shut-eye is something of a miracle, but these are the best.
A shopping spree — and a new outfit, say readers, can do wonders for the psyche.
8) Things that grow
Gardening, readers say, nurtures not only plants but people.
9) Time alone
A solitary movie, a solo walk, or a similar outing provides a simple break that many readers say they depend on.
10) Word play
Time alone to read a book — or even just a magazine — all the way through is a major feat when you're a mother.
