With everything on my task list, big projects looming in the background and the time I get sans kids during the day down to about 20 minutes, it’s difficult to shut my brain down and just enjoy.
The Coach keeps telling me to focus on being my best day by day rather than taking on the whole chunk, which is not my strong suit.
But this week – we’ve had spring. In March. In Chicago. Over the weekend, I took the kids to Dairy Queen in their pajamas. The kids giggled and shared ice cream.
That moment was perfect:
We may be back to winter weather next week, but for now, productivity is low for good reason: the sunscreen is on and we’re playing at parks, picnicking and feeling the warm on our skin. Is there any better way to recharge?
