I’ve blogged about life/work balance a few times in the last month, and haven’t done much about it. I’m kind of like that – big talk on what you *should do* but a poor example of doing it (imho).This morning was different. I got up at 6am, got three of my kids out of bed and we went fishing. My fingers still smell like catfish bait (not sure how that dumb stuff is supposed to work). We caught nothing (well, my three year old got a tumbleweed on the last cast), but we had a terrific time. No one cared that we didn’t catch anything – we all had a blast.
One of the most interesting things about this morning was that our hour spent before we got the pond (driving, and some time at Wal-Mart) was about as exciting as when we were at the pond. You know how the anticipation of going to Disneyland sometimes trumps the few days you are at the park? Same thing. It was probably the most exciting Wal-Mart trip I’ve been on, and it was all before 7am!
So there you go, I feel this is so off-topic but I wanted to share with you that in addition to blogging about all of this important stuff I’m actually doing it! I hope you take time this summer to do what’s most important, also. I doubt you’ll have any regrets if you take advantage of the 6am fishing trips with your kids!
