It is a RARE occurrence when the house is quiet and TWO of my three children are sleeping at the same time. Rare as in it hasn’t happened in about….1.8 years – yes, that means that during the day, there is no rest for the weary (mother, that is). And it must be documented for the history books.
Holy cow – it’s unrreal. Dumbfounded. So, what do I do??? Not clean, that’s for sure. Cleaning can only happen when the energy to move and the motivation to do it are precisely in sync – not syncing today – not happening up in here. And why do I feel the need to clean when I have 3 minutes of quiet??? I cleaned last month, it’s all good;)
This is why rolling out of bed and directly into my runninng clothes works for me. So that when the moment such as this presents itself, I am ready to terrorize my treadmill and crank out a few miles. Of course today, I decide to put real people clothes on and look like a real adult. So I sit here NOT running and NOT being productive. It is actually almost paralyzing to a mom when there is peace and quiet – there are ten million things I could be doing, but certainly can’t get all of them done. I’m an all or nothing kind of person – I’ll go with nothing for today:)
Ok, ok. I do have exactly 38 minutes before #3 needs to be picked up from school. I will break my all or nothing rule and just do the run. I can get in a good 5 and call it a day. Peace people!!
This 5 year old has taken about 3 naps in the past 3 years – one TIRED chic!
