Time Off

Yes, I'm always busy.
Yes, my "to do" list is endless.
Yes, they have homework every day. AND after-school activities.
Yes, I'm tired.
Every once in a while, I stop.
We stop.
We take some time off.
It doesn't have to be a full day.
A few hours will do.
And we have fun. Pure fun. Just us.
Yesterday we went to a close-by amusement park for only 3 hours. That's it.
It gave all of us energy to continue with our work, homework, to do lists...
Try it. Take some time off. Have fun. The dishes will wait.
