It is SO hard to find time for hobbies but well worth the effort. I also work full time and have two kids, but I sing once a week in a group that rehearses in our dining room. It helps me to rediscover and keep alive that part of myself that isn't a mom, worker or wife -- the youthful me who started singing and performing at age 8 and never stopped. I can't tell you how many times I dread the start of rehearsal: I'm too tired, I don't feel like it, etc. etc. But by the end of the 90 minutes, I have been transported back in time. I even think it makes me a better mom, worker and wife to restore myself with a hobby.

Thanks, Katherine! I need to remind myself, I make time for doctors
appointments and other health-related things, why not hobbies? I agree
that they can only make me a better person (mom, employee, wife...)
