It’s 6:47 pm, and I need to head out the door to choir practice, but I wanted to post a short entry.
First, if you have time, drop by my sister-in-law’s blog and wish her a happy birthday today. I haven’t managed to get even a card in the mail, but I am praying that she’s having a good time on her special day. (She hasn’t mentioned her birthday in any post, but you can just put it in the comments on some other post.)
I’ve been thinking a lot about relaxation and what that means. Mark and I both work out of our house–in addition to raising our 4 kids here. We seldom go anywhere unless we have to run and errand or take the kids somewhere they need to go. Our idea of relaxing is watching a movie or tv show we want to see. Lately, I have been thinking that we need to schedule time away from the house just to do something we want to do–either individually or together. I think that being at home is great. And, we really love our new house. But I also think there is something to be said for going elsewhere to sort of clear our heads. I think my own productivity on projects for work is hindered when I am rattling around in the same 4 walls so much. With summer coming, I know I’ll be out more with the kids, but I really want to make an effort to get out on my own more and relax in another environment.
Where do you go when you want to relax or get away but you’re not going on vacation?
