Yesterday I was talking with a special friend of mine who's in her late 70's and will be traveling to Nebraska next week to visit family. While she's there she and her husband are going to visit their grave markers. (They put them out “early” so they'll have a chance to see them before they're gone, she said!) It kind of put life in perspective for me.
As I sat in bed last night thinking about what to clean next (I know, there are plenty of places to go . . .) I also thought that my summer is R-U-N-N-I-N-G away from me. My kids are growing up way too fast, and I spend so much time rushing through the daily activities that I rarely slow down and just enjoy these days God has given me. (Anybody with me?)
So I decided to skip the five minute cleaning challenge today, and instead I'm challenging you to take 5 minutes (hopefully more!) and do something you love. My plan is to settle down, get my kiddos all tucked up in our bed, and snuggle up for a little quiet reading time. I'm thinking we'll even take up some cookies, and enjoy them right there in the bed, because I'm the mom and I'm allowed to do what I want . . .right? (Besides, those sheets need to be changed – maybe that'll be my five minute challenge today 🙂 ). Usually I spend their afternoon quiet time working on deals, so expect a little slacking off today (I hope you understand!)
So, join me and take 5 minutes OFF! If you don't have little ones running around, curl up with a book, send a note to someone you haven't thought of in a while, or just eat some good chocolate (thanks for the tip, Lisa!) When you finish come on back and leave a comment about what you did, and I'll add you to the Simply Gogurt Giveaway.
But please note – you are NOT off the hook on these 5 minute challenges – I have lots more planned but wanted a break today! You can still freshen up your bathroom, clean your toilet, and tidy up under the sink if you need a few suggestions for today when your done taking your break, and we're going to finish up ALL the bathrooms this weekend!
