Most of my days feel like a marathon with a sprint from start to finish. My alarm sounds at 6am, and it’s immediately go-time. There are pancakes or eggs or cereal (reserved for lazy mornings) to be served, lunches to be packed and coffee to be brewed. My oldest needs to be dressed, brushed and hugged by 7:15am since the bus driver doesn’t wait for mom bloggers who are frantically trying to get out an early morning post.
The day picks up steam from there and unfolds in a flurry of pick-ups and drop-offs, grocery runs, emails and all the other stuff that seems to consume my daily life, all while still running a business. So when I was asked, “What would you do with three extra minutes?” the ideas came rushing at me like a waterfall.
Top Ten Things I’d Do If I Had Three Extra Minutes
1. Clean out my purse
2. Write a sweet note to my husband
3. Make myself a poached egg on toast
4. Get super silly with the kids (jumping on the bed encouraged)
5. Organize the junk drawer
6. Deep condition my hair
7. Email a long lost friend
8. Plan out a cute outfit for the next day
9. Read and comment on my favorite blogs
10. Enjoy a bad magazine and a good cup of tea
And, I can’t even imagine what I could come up with if I had TEN whole extra minutes!
Just for kicks I want to know what you would do if you had three extra minutes in the day. Would it be a beauty treatment? Something for your kids? Or maybe a few moments of pure silence. Let me know by commenting here or on this post.
