I make something out of nothing everyday.
That's my secret.
Life, right now, isn't the most exciting.
It's my job as a
magician Mom to make it appear as if it was.
(And, silly kids, they fall for it all the time.)
I made a "Movie Tonight" sign to start the hype then moved the kids craft table in front of the TV so we could enjoy dinner and a movie. The kids helped set the table and made it "fancy" which occupied them while I got dinner ready. When we were done eating, we paused the movie, cleared the table and moved it out of the way, then finished the movie snuggled together on the couch. Just a few tweaks made this ordinary movie night extraordinary.
Have you pulled a bunny out of your hat and made something more than it was?
And just for fun...
Let's talk about the dishwasher.
I'm out of whack with my dishwashing schedule.
My preference is to unpack first thing in the morning and run it last thing at night.
Somehow I've gotten off schedule and my world has been turned upside down.
(Not really, but just annoying to unpack during witching hours.)
What's your preference? When do you like to unpack?
It's Wednesday and the kids and I will be busy solving the world's problems today...at the pool.
It's too hot to do anything else. Anyone join me for a rain dance?
