Time for Play

This morning I woke up feeling blah-sy...
I woke up feeling reasonably rested, made some tea, turned on the computer, and looked at my sticky notes on the screen (I love these, by the way, so GREEN!). It looked something like this...


- Pay business card when xxx check arrives
- complete application for Lucy's health insurance
- Revise Vermont proposal
- Follow up on medical billing.....


you get the picture....I think I may need more vitamin D...I'm sure I need more fun....


Not that I don't enjoy my days, and I do my very best so savor the richness that is my life all the time with these sweet girls, this amazing husband, this wonderful family and group of friends....
But sometimes, a midst all of the to dos, the laundry, the cooking, the cleaning, the driving to and fro, there just needs to be time to play. Really, there always should be, but I get bogged down, am the first child in my family, the responsible one, and so I forget. But I've been looking at my oldest daughter, the first in our small family, and thinking there is much I am teaching her by default....and I need to teach her to make room for play and those things that she loves, to prioritize them, even, or she might forget too.


So this morning, after looking at above list, I put these two on the top:


- Play HARD & LOUDLY with the kids!
- Get your crafty on this week! (which is grown up for play for me).


So here's to play time and wishing you time to play your heart out as well.
