How much time do you spend alone with your DH/SO?- I hardly ever get to. Less than once per month.

How much time do you spend alone with friends?- I usually get to do this once or twice per month with my best friend. SO watches the kids.

Any time alone for just you? No, pretty much never!

How much time do you spend alone with your DH/SO?- Maybe once a month. My parents will take Ayden overnight.

How much time do you spend alone with friends?- Almost never!

Any time alone for just you? Absolutely NEVER!!! Boy, do I need it!

I am a sahm with all my kids in school now, my youngest is in first grade this year. Dh works from home and he is here almost all of the time with me and if he does go somewhere I go with him, so we spend a lot of time together, but it isn't really quality time. I consider quality time whan we get to go into town to got to the mall for lunch and a coffee and just hang out for a few hours. We get to do that about once a month or month and a half. whenever I can get a sitter for my youngest ones and dh's kids stay with their mom for the weekend. My younest 2 boys do not get to see thier dad because he is a drug addict.
I really do not have any friends so anything I do is with dh and I do not drive so I don't go any where alone, I wouldn't want to anyway.

We're really trying to make time for ourselves. We're going to start leaving Ben with a family from church one Saturday per month now.

Very little. They are usually asleep and it is late if we get anytime to ourselves. And then we are both too tired.

I dont! My mom, dh and sister are the only ones I will leave my kids with. My sister is a junior in College, my dh works 60 to 80 hours a week and my mom is recovering from lung cancer.

I work full time so I get time alone then. I get some time during my lunch hour to either relax alone, run some errands or shop alone, or go out to lunch with a friend I work with. Sometimes, maybe once a month, I get together with a friend for dinner. DH and I get time alone in the evening when DD goes to bed. We don't go out alone very often because we are homebodies.

How much time do you spend alone with your DH/SO? When Cole goes to bed around 9 we spend time together until we go to sleep. We try to go out on a date about once a month.

How much time do you spend alone with friends? Not much. Cole is usually with me when I'm with my friends.

Any time alone for just you? Well, I guess driving to school and back which is about an hour each way gives me my break.
