I’ve mentioned before that I’m a “theatre person.” This is how I describe myself since I’m not currently doing much in that area. Little things here and there at the church keep me generally satisfied. But I’ve had this random opportunity to do a variety show in a real theatre with other real “theatre people” and I’m so excited. I’ve chosen not to do much in that area because of the time that it would consume, and I don’t want to miss this precious stage of my family’s life. But when I was approached about this and was told it would only be two weeks of rehearsal and just a small part, I decided to do it, mostly because my husband was excited for me.
So what does that have to do with my daily tasks? Well, I went to rehearsal last night and am going again tonight. Yesterday, I was proud of myself for doing most of my evening tasks in the afternoon, because I didn’t know how late I would be out. For me, this is big. I have been chugging along through busy weeks, but any time in the past when I’ve done something similar to this, I’ve let my home completely go to the bottom of the list.
Like I said though, I only did MOST of my evening tasks yesterday. I didn’t wipe down the bathrooms, though, and I then forgot to do it after I got home. So, this afternoon, I have almost done them all, with the exception being that I just started a load of laundry since I didn’t this morning before I left for Bible Study. Tomorrow’s lunches are made, clothes are laid out, bathrooms are wiped down, and hopefully I’ll finish that load of laundry.
This means that I can go tonight, shed the Mommy skin for a few hours, and not feel guilty that I’ve neglected my family and home for the sake of the stagelights.
Also today I:
Checked bathrooms for clutter.
Did FOCUSED 5 minute pick-up.
