So, it’s a beautiful sunny 60 degree day here in Minnesota……in February!! What??? Is this some cruel joke?!?! I know I should be enjoying this beautiful weather but come on, it’s still winter!! This is Minnesota people. Winter is NOT over. I put my coat on to go outside today because…..it’s WINTER!! I’m sweating just sitting in my car. But in a few days we’re supposed to have a giant snowstorm and get like 12 inches of snow. It’s like someone giving you ice cream cone and taking it away after a couple of licks. I just know that someone is going to steal my ice cream. Not cool, man, not cool. Wahhhhh!!!!!
In all seriousness I am enjoying this weather. So thankful for the sunshine! My children and I are now going to play outside.
We’ll that lasted about 10 minutes.
I just don’t know what to do outside. And if I’m being honest I just don’t enjoy the outdoors as much as I think I should. Plus we live in the city so how much can you do when your backyard is concrete and old piles of wood?!? Parent fail! It really does feel like a fail. But you know what? Like most women I think I’m too hard on myself. My kids aren’t gonna become lazy bums who sit and watch tv all day because I didn’t make going outside the most exciting thing ever. I do think it is good to evaluate yourself every now and then, not dwell on, just think about things you could be doing better…..like knowing some good outdoor activities. So I will try to commit some idea to memory.
Never dwell on mistakes. Do what needs to be done and don’t beat yourself up and move on. If we learn from our “failures” that’s a good thing.
Hope to hear from anyone reading. Thanks and God bless!
