Today I'm letting the kids do literally whatever they want all day, without my nagging and suggestions etc. This is not purely altruistic however. I have loads of planning I'm doing for my business and personal life for 2014 so I need/want the uninterrupted time and the kids are loving the freedom. I made them lunch and they can eat it whenever they want (it won't get stale or yucky) so no need to nag them about that.
They wanted clarification, "So we can play video games all day long???"
"If that's what you really want."
"Well, I don't think I'll play ALL day. I mean I should get outside too."
"Whatever you want."
Right now they are playing Minecraft together.
I'm shortly to head to the back patio with a cup of tea and start working on my 2014 Biz Planner from Leonie Dawson. I've almost completed the personal edition and I'm really feeling good about the year so far.
Part of the personal edition is to do a 12 month tarot pull just to see what the cards may hold for the year. I first did this pull using my Herbal Tarot deck but the results were very un-nerving. Very negative.
So I did a new pull with my Good Witch Bad Witch deck and I'm much happier with the results. They do somewhat align with the first pull but they have a much more positive tone.
I have so much desire to get into my large stash of unprocessed wool and get washing. But I really want to get these two workbooks completed before I start. So I'm giving myself till Monday when the kids go back to school to finish my planning for the year and getting organized. For the first time since I became a mother, 8 years ago, I have mapped out a year ahead and that feels really, really good.
