When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade (original quote by someone’s grandma?) ……
……An absolute favorite saying of mine. I have always tried to apply these words to my life no matter whether it was something little or big. When the boys were infants, and I had a LONG day that did not allow me to shower or eat a whole meal or make a phone call, I took pleasure in a hot bubble-bath after I got the boys to sleep. When my grandmother died, I survived devastation when a few days later, I found out she would have a namesake when I discovered I was pregnant. Today, I was really going back and forth with what I should write on the blog, AND then my day changed because my husband forgot to send my son to school with a lunch (on the last day of school).
just a few words on the 1st ever wordless wednesday here – picked up a grande skinny caramel macchiato on my way to visit my mom in the hospital – aaaah! now time to prioritize!
I started writing this last Friday 10/22/1010
When I first met my husband, he called me “the hurricane” because I moved at such high intensity. This week, I attacked my new project and my family life at hurricane speed. I was fairly productive, but realized that next week – I have to start making lists. Why? Because when you are no longer a single gal, but rather a couple or family member, you have to prioritize. You cannot wait until 9 p.m. to order dinner, you have to remember to pick your kids up from school, and you need to check on your aging parents or in-laws. Next week, the goal is to learn how to work in “microbursts.” I would describe “microbursts” as being short intervals of work that are highly productive (with Starbucks coffee breaks in between).
