My new thing this week was to unplug for an entire day. No cell phones (dead anyway) & no computer (laptop cord croaked). Instead I spent copious amounts of time hanging out with the kids, watching movies with the husband and generally living in a state of “now”. It was a first, although not by choice.
My new thing this week is to make sure my home environment isn’t negative. There is so much of our day that is all about “No!” and “stop!” because of my kids’ ages. I am checking once a day every day to make sure the climate of our house is not grumpy or negative. I’m low on patience a lot of the time, so I set an alarm on my phone to remind me… in case I forget. 😉
I panicked when I realized I didn’t have a single new thing to talk about this past week, that or I just couldn’t remember what it was so I went to the store and bought a new flavor of ice cream. I chose wisely. I love Heath Bar anything so I picked up the Ben and Jerry’s Vanilla Heath Bar and it was superb! Try it!
