I was inspired by Megan Tietz who writes over at SortaCrunchy when she discussed “A Month for Mama.” As a mom with 6 month old twin boys, and two other girls, she has her hands full with taking care of other family members. As I read through her post about trying to carve out some “me” time, it resonated with me. My little Connor is now 12 weeks old and I was feeling the need to get out a little by myself. When I got the opportunity to test drive the new Chevy Volt electric car, it gave me a little extra motivation to get out of the house for some “me” time.
Monday night~ Got out after the kids went to bed for a little drive in the car. Couldn’t believe how quiet it was…both the car and the lack of noise from the back seat.
Tuesday~ Snuck out with Madison to Trader Joe’s…just the girls. So easy to get out with just one child, it was a treat! I wonder what cars will be fueled with when she is old enough to drive…
Wednesday~ A haircut. Finally. Connor made the trip with me in the new car and was happy to snuggle with Beth, my hairstylist at Creative Expressions, while I enjoyed some magazine reading under the dryer.
Life gets in the way the other days…but my husband took it out for a spin. Thought it was cool, just a bit small for his 6’4″ frame.
Sunday~ FINALLY got out for pedicure. Hooray!
Time to say goodbye to the Chevy Volt…back to minivan land.
How do you make time for yourself during the week?
I appreciate the opportunity to test drive the Chevy Volt and this is not a paid post. All opinions expressed here are my own.
Wow! I am jealous! Although I am not one of those who loathes the minivan, I do have to say that it would be AMAZING to get to scoot around town in something smaller and much more QUIET. I am totally jealous of the pedicure, too (says the lady with the ugly bare toes).
What a fun opportunity – looks like a great week! 😀
Cute post, Em! Love the red toenails and your question about what cars will be fueled with when our kids are driving.
There is also the Chrysler Pacifica which is an extended range electric vehicle. It’s a great electric option for a family. Not all electric cars need to be small sized.
