Unfortunately, we don't leave for the beach for another six days.
We were almost late for school. I was trying to explain that we needed to get ready for TODAY. Get shoes on, brush our hair, etc. Accomplish TODAY before we plan for tomorrow.
Then I went back to my computer. I was busy searching for laundry room designs in a future dream house. Instead of doing laundry.
Here's to learning the balance:
Between the boredom of repetitive tasks and
the joy of calm, clean readiness.
Between living in the moment and planning for the future.
Between teaching the skills I am still practicing myself.
And in the meantime, we'll go to the beach!
