If you don’t watch the news, the midwest has been under a snow blanket. Schools have been closed, restaurants closed (even Mcdee’s), life has stopped in Edmond Oklahoma.
This afternoon, Tanner recited 11 mins. of Spongebob Squarepants – They so need to go back to school.
BUT – Chandler and I made a castle of empty boxes, butcher paper, and scrapbook supplies.
I love my boys dearly! But no more snowdays.
Moms… what is keeping the peace and sanity in your house during this winter craziness?
What do you do to waste time? What should you be doing instead? What would make you give it up and do something real?
In Les Parrot’s book 3 Seconds he makes this observation: “The primary, or conscious, gain that we receive from busyness is often productivity. We feel productive because we look productive. But just under the surface, we may be pursuing busyness because it alleviates some anxiety. Being too busy might even provide the excuse we need for not doing something we fear failing at. Because being busy gives us license to arrive late, slip out early, or be absent altogether, we can rationalize that we don’t have time to do what would help us realize our dream.
What are you to busy for…or what are you hiding from?
