I get an occasional girls night, but I don't have a lot of girlfriends in town. Most of the people I hang out with are family. DH does a poker night with his BIL and friends, so I hang out with my SIL and the other wives.
I do need time away from kids to recoup. My morning runs with my friend serve that purpose. Get some girl talk, time to vent if needed, and get a good workout. It helps keep the blues away for me
I get a girls night here and there and DF gets his occasional guys night too. But, we much prefer going out together with our friends. All of our friends are either married or in long-time relationships like us so when we all hang out together the husbands and wives usually split off and talk to each other anyways. When DF and I go out together, we get the benefit of seeing our good friends and we both get a break from being "mom and dad" and we get to just be "Ashley and Jordan" for a little bit.
When we lived in Arizona I had a group of girlfriends that I'd get together with - we didn't go out, no one could afford it - but we had girl's night's in at each other's houses almost every week, and Bunco once a month.
I don't really have any girlfriends here, but since we live with my family, we have "Family Night" every Saturday where we all have dinner together and then play card and board games after.
I'm still having a hard time being away from her all day while I'm working. I can't bring myself to leave her much more than that. Last weekend DH and I went to a concert for my birthday. I hated leaving her. I felt really guilty and sad.
