15 minutes better :: 5


Busy Sunday here. This afternoon I finished two tax returns and one FAFSA– hooray! PLUS I got rid of three bags of clothes from my closet. That didn’t leave me much time to focus on the people– fortunately most of them were very content to play outside in the balmy weather we had today. (The snow is GOING– hooray!!) This evening after we herded all the kids off to bed, John and I managed a nice long chat, which doesn’t always happen. SO I am calling that my ‘better’ for the day, and am hoping to do more tomorrow. How about you? What extra good stuff did you manage to fit it?

Speaking of good stuff, did you know about Shannon’s visit to Uganda with Compassion International? She is flying right NOW and I am so eager to hear how her trip goes!

  2. My better for Sunday

    My son–15 for 10 more days– called from a neighborhood friend’s home at 2:55 and asked if he came home right now would I take him for a hair cut. I agreed. By the time we got to Fantastic Sams which is only 2 minutes from home we found it closed. (It closes at 3 on Sundays and not 4 as I thought.)

    Since we were already out, I asked him if he wanted to go to Starbucks—so we drove the 15 minutes to pick up a coffee. It was great to spend time with him and make him feel special since his girl friend broke up with him the previous night.

  3. Time with husband ALWAYS counts! Good for you!

  4. I really love this!! I have but it in to practice myself! Thanks!

  5. I really like this idea. The best thing I did today was sort through all of the jewelry that had been passed onto me after my mother inlaw passed away THREE YEARS AGO. It has been sitting all tangled up in a drawer. My two daughters sat on the floor and had a grand time sorting with me and putting the keepers in little boxes. It felt nice to have that drawer organized and it was fun to see my daughters glowing faces as they played dress up with big people stuff. Even better we found our adopted son’s baby hospital bracelet that had been tossed into the drawer. That led to putting it in the proper place~the kids each have a box of their clothes that they came to us in and first toy, tooth, a diaper so they can see how small/big they were when we got them etc. Our daughter with attachment disorder really enjoyed looking at her box and everyone elses too. THis time she didn’t seem to mind that her diaper was way bigger than everyone elses. I even had one of those moments~ where I thought this is a memory to store away. Sorry to ramble…
