I would be relieved if …

We’re more than half way through the second week.  How are you doing?  Still having fun, we hope.  Getting some good “aha” moments.

Here’s what’s left for this week:

Task – Twenty Minutes

Set your timer for 20 minutes.  Declutter something from your home.

Remember to make piles for recycling, trash, giveaways (bags or boxes works well)

We’re great fans of Marie Kondo.  For inspiration, check our her Netflix show “Tidying Up”.

Task – Boredom

Children react instinctively to boredom with imagination and creativity.  Look back and remember how you combatted boredom as a child.

For example:

  • Putting on a puppet show (I actually did this one.  I learned how to build marionettes and write plays, then put on shows, getting my Girl Scout puppeteer badge while I was having fun.)
  • Building a sand castle
  • Creating a pots-and-pans band
  • Playing dress-up

Task – The Relief of Routine (answer this five times):

I would be relieved if I made time to…

Life is supposed to be fun, so don’t be afraid to be a little whimsical.  Share your answers and insights in the comments.

Hugs,

Chris

    Task – The Relief of Routine

    I would be relieved if I made time to get a slightly smaller house and without a yard.
    I would be relieved if I made time to smile more.
    I would be relieved if I made time to decorate our house and keep it dusted.
    I would be relieved if I made time to eat healthier hoping to give me more energy.
    I would be relieved if I made time to take a vacation day and just enjoy myself.

    Note:  I’m feeling tired and a little down today, so on a happy day, which really is most days, my answers would most likely be totally different.

    1. We’ve been in our current house eleven years. Last year before I retired, we finally got it painted and carpeted. It’s soooo much nicer. Instead of the bright pink bathroom, dark green family room and two tone kitchen, it’s all a soft buttery yellow. The carpet is a pale gold and it stays clean so much longer.

  2. And here are my answers:
    I would be relieved if I made time to get away somewhere with Cee, just the two of us without pets or work or school. I think we need a mini-vacation.
    I would be relieved if I made time to sit down and read a book for fun.
    I would be relieved if I made time to finish my taxes.
    I would be relieved if I made time to eat healthier hoping to give me more energy. (Yeah, I’m borrowing this one from Cee. We both need it.)
    I would be relieved if I made time to give the house a good clean.
