Went for a walk: This morning, I walk into work from the parking lot - to be fair, its about 15 minutes. Before that, unless its sunrise which I do a couple of times a week, we always walk together.
Read the newspaper: This morning. I need morning time, so I get up half hour before everyone else for coffee and the paper
Read a book: A few days, because we are busy right now. Normally I read for half an hour before bed.
Watched a movie: No idea. I'm not big on movies.
Went to the mall: Wait, there are still malls?
Went to the grocery store: I went by myself to pick something up on the way home from work last night...but when I do the weekly shop I always have both kids with me.
Visited a friend or family member: March 30, I had dinner with my sister

Were you able to relax or were you rushed for time? I rarely rush these days, I make a point of scheduling me time to control stress If there isn't time to really enjoy it, I rarely do it.[/QUOTE]

Went for a walk: While I was pregnant with Aiden and trying to "walk him out"
Read the newspaper: College? I haven't ever bought a newspaper except for when it was required for a college class
Read a book: Finished a new book two nights ago!
Watched a movie: I've been slowly watching More Business of Being Born while DS is down for a nap. Does that count? lol
Went to the mall: By myself? Back when I lived in Vegas!
Went to the grocery store: I went by myself once last October before DH left for a TDY.
Visited a friend or family member: Does going to a friend's wedding last summer count?

Were you able to relax or were you rushed for time? It's so rare for me to do something by myself now that it's usually a long set up event that I can take my time. lol
