Its a daily struggle for me to get dressed, shower and go out, but I do what I can, and thats all I can do.
Ill be meeting some MDc moms friday so its something to look forward to..
I think a few hours break a week can do wonders for your sanity. Also, I found that commitment to be good for me, it forces me to get dressed, to get out of the house, even if only to drop DD off. If it was something just for me, I'd plan to do it, but skip it later cuz I didn't feel like it. So what I've done lately is not just sign up for things but actually signing up for htings that require a commitment, like running children's events for my mothers club and getting appointed to a town committee and the fact that it isn't something I can just beg out of has made a big difference to me.
I am on the mailing list for the moms group you are talking about meeting. Everyone is really too far away for me, but they sound like a really nice bunch - I'm sure you'll have fun!
