This week was a lesson in balance. Two weeks ago when I had that super-productive-mega-awesome week? That was awesome FOR ME. Not so much for the rest of the people living in this house. I only did enough laundry and dishes to get by and I barely cooked. (Let’s not talk about all the other things I didn’t do, mkay?)
This week I had a few orders to work on, so once I finished up the one that needed to be finished right away, I took a break from work to, be with my family and CLEAN. It really is amazing what a neat house will do for morale! When we can walk through the living room without tripping over toys that makes us all happier. When there is a clean glass when we want something to drink–up with the happy. And apparently when I can see the kitchen table, like, see IT and not all the crap on it, that not only makes us happy, but brings the family together in the kitchen.
This upcoming week, I would like to continue this balance. I like getting stuff done, but I also like having clean clothes. I’d like to make it a priority to make both happen most days around here.
What about you? Do you tend to let stuff slide when you’re super focused on a project? What do you do to keep it all balanced? (Isn’t that a silly question? It changes every day doesn’t it?! But answer it anyway! Feel free to include your very best crock pot, rice cooker, or just plain fast recipes because meals are the biggest part of this balance for me. When there is a good meal on the table, the complaints are held to a minimum!)
And just for fun, here’s my baby dressed to play in the snow. We only got a couple of inches, but they all had so much fun! If you’re about to get the superblizzard I hope you stay safe, and find a way to enjoy it a little!
