Ironically enough, the answer, for now, came in adding things to my list, not taking anything away.
Update the blog. You enjoy writing, laughing about your day. It is a record of this time. (And thanks, Debbie!)
Read. Find quiet time to escape, learn, set a good example for the kids. And read to the kids more.
Play outside. Matthew isn't going to master that slide without someone to push him down a few times!
So, in the last few days I read a book. A whole one. And I let chores go undone (WHAT?) so I could play outside. I read Reillee a Roald Dahl book because childhood isn't complete without the Twits and the Witches and the BFG! And I treated myself to a long run and, later in the same day, a long hike.
Wait? Running wasn't in your list! Or hiking!
Yeah, I guess I should have stuck to the inspiration I received. My foot is killing me. So now I have some down time to blog a bit...
Maybe I will write all about our summer!
Or moving and our super classy landlords!
Or our vacation!
