Are You Walking In Circles?

There are so many busy parents out there. One a had a chance to talk to about how her long weekend went. This was her response:

” We worked so hard Saturday and Sunday. Laundry, gardening, repairs and running kids every which way. We fell onto the couch each night completely and utterly wasted from our efforts of the two days. Both my husband and I said – THAT’s IT! Tomorrow, we’re doing nothing! No one thing!

And then I added, well I just want to cut the grass around the pool and make a lasagna, but that’s it!

Yup, my husband said. I’m just going to move some raspberry bushes and do a quick vacuum of the pool and that’s it!

Well, let me tell you at 2 pm we happen to pass each other with tools and items in our hands and I asked him how his “do nothing day” was going? and he responded – Same as every other day! ”

It is so difficult to take that time out when there seems to be so much to do. I’m not here to tell you that being organized will make it so you can have every weekend off to “do nothing” . However, having systems in place, knowing that everything has a home and putting things away and not DOWN. helps. It helps in a big way.

I understand the busy family lifestyles, I also have worked with so many families that have taken that step and claimed their extra time as their own.  Tired of spending your weekends “picking up” after everyone else? We know how it is.
