I was just telling someone yesterday that I keep a running list of things I need to do, but I have no schedule for it. Whether it’s for responsible things like cleaning out the upstairs closets or fun things like taking a bike ride, I just have it written down, and when we get to it, we get to it. There are two reasons for this, I’m spontaneous and my husband is self-employed. When you’re self-employed, you HAVE to get the work done when it comes in, and you also have to accept the work when it comes in. There is no organization telling you that you have a two week furlough coming up and you can have time off. Pros and cons to everything, my friends.
One of those listed things (as previously mentioned) was a bike ride with all five of us. Considering it took us 45 minutes just to load bikes, get all gear, drive over and search for parking, and teaching bike path rules, we are insanely proud of ourselves as parents for completing this – #4 on the Summer Things to Do List.
