Mompreneurs/Dadpreneurs – pour yourself some lemonade!

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).

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).
