Mom emailed last week, wondering if I was busy. Her evidence? No blog posts, no email messages and no Facebook posts.
So yes – I’ve been busy and so has my guy. We’re playing catch up on some things, trying to get ahead on other things and juggling home repairs with work meetings.
It’s important to keep in mind that busy comes and busy goes. For us, we’re resigned to a certain amount of busy lives for the next couple of years. We’re working for a purpose (paying off the house, getting retirement to a certain point, catching up out-of-date work processes) and that simply requires time and energy.
But as we keep reminding ourselves, it’s important to know when to turn the busy dial down to a less busy pace.
All work and no play, you know, is just as bad as all play and no work.
