This afternoon, as I was driving home from work, my mind was focused on all the things I need to get done. I have a meeting tomorrow that I need to prepare for. I wanted to get on the treadmill (I’ve been eating a bit too much pre-Valentine’s Day chocolate). I wanted to check my email and Facebook. I had lots & lots of stuff to tick off my mental to-do list.
When I picked my daughter up at daycare she was in a great mood. We walked to the car holding hands as she delighted in the falling snow – throwing her head back so the snowflakes could land on her tongue. She looked at me and said “Mommy when we get home let’s build a snowman!” My first thought was, I can’t build a snowman tonight – when will I get my workout done? When will I do all of those other things?
