I am not quite sure where this week went…it’s Friday afternoon already?
I was perusing Etsy the other night (which I guess can account for where some of my time went…) and came across this print:
Not only is that a really cool print, but it’s so true. It definitely takes me back to my second grade math days (Venn diagrams, anyone?!). Sometimes I let time and/or money keep me from doing things that I want to do…like letting a huge to-do list keep me from sitting down with my husband at night, or going for a run. But really, does a two-page to-do list need to be done all at once? And money. Oh, money. I remember telling Jim that if we waited until we had enough time and money to have children, we’d never have them. And I was right. However, we have plenty of money for the necessities, and we are certainly not walking around without any clothes or hungry (although Molly will claim that we are starving her. Starving! Poor girl.).
I am not sure where this post is going exactly. I had just bookmarked that print and wanted to share it, especially because I keep having this time/money conversation with everyone, or at least it seems that way. While it’s definitely not a new idea in real life or in the blogging world…there’s a lot to be said for prioritizing tasks, saying no, doing more of what you *want* to do (i.e., by saying no to the things that take your time), and spending less than you make.
What are you up to this weekend? We don’t have much on the agenda, so I’m looking forward to some free time with my sweet kiddos.
