15 minutes better

I occasionally get to read other inspiring mom's blogs. One of these is Mary Owlhaven who has like 10 kids whom she homeschools and still finds time to write a really great blog. You can find her blog on my "blogs I read" section. She had a really great idea that I think I may steal. In those times when life seems to really be stressful and overwhelming and it doesn't seem like you're having much fun, she had a great idea to make each day 15 minutes better. Every day, try to do something that makes the day 15 minutes better... let the kids ride their bikes the first time they ask, play a game, do a puzzle, spend some extra cuddle time with each kid. I really liked that idea because sometimes 15 minutes of pure joy may be the best I can get. I seem to be in survival mode right now.... get the kids educated, get everyone well, get the laundry done, clean the house, oh yeah take a shower and make my bed.... there are so many "have to's" to do, I sometimes forget that this is supposed to be fun.

You know I think this is great idea no matter the number of kids. We all have alot going on just differnt stuff. I need to try that one. Care if I steal it ? Love you all. Thank you for sharing your life with us this way. We don't get to spend much time together, but at least we still get to share. Jenny

La vida loca,it is crazy and soon will be a normal functioning crazy and then the fun really starts and you don't have to remind yourself. Although the snow does look very fun!!
