It has been a little quiet on my blog lately just because I cannot seem to find the time to sit down, write and put together a post. I wish it were possible to blog while driving or in the shower because that is where I finally get a chance to quiet my mind and think of good posts! Things have been so busy. We had server issues with some of our websites which caused some late nights when then caused us all to get this nasty flu that is going around... Jake got it, then Charlie, and now I have it. Oy! Just another something to add to the craziness. But yesterday when all I wanted to do was just finish some laundry and get caught up on a few things around the house, all Charlie wanted to do was water the plants. I had to be somewhere in 30 mins, had SO much to do, but Charlie insisted it all wait. He took me outside, had me fill up his watering can, and just blabbed away in his baby talk to me. It was the best part of my day.
I know at this moment in life, it is not possible to take a 3 day vacation, unplug from working, and take a break from it all. That is how it is running your own business...there is ALWAYS work to be done. It is never just a 9 to 5 job. But I have learned these past few hard weeks that even though I can't take that vacation I wish we could have, we can give ourselves mini "vacations". Just going outside to water the plants with Charlie really calmed my busy head. I am striving to take more of those mini breaks as a family. Put the phone down, don't look at emails, and enjoy! :)
Here's to more mini-vacations!
