Rainy Day

Lait_rainy_dayRainy Day

One rainy Saturday afternoon, my husband thoughtfully offered to take the kids out for the afternoon, so that I’d have some time to myself.  I was very excited at the prospect of some free time.

However, as soon as the door closed, I started to go through a long list of all of the things I wanted to do.  And I only had two hours!

This piece is about the realization that I can feel overwhelmed even when I find free time.  Raising children in the suburbs can easily lead to a fast and frenetic pace for families.  Downtime can become a rare treat.  You want the best for your kids and your family.  Yet, there is only one of you, and eventually, you have to say no to things.  This is my lesson, deciding when I will say ‘Yes’, and when I will say ‘No’.
