As I stated to earlier I was out of commission for a few weeks with two very different ailments. When I got to the point that I felt better and just could not lie in bed any longer or sit on the couch for another second I decided it was time for some major spring cleaning in the home!! I started with every room in the house. Finding things for a garage sale, Goodwill, EBay, or just plain the trash can. I reorganized drawers, closets, and cabinets. I also started using the internet to buy things for upcoming showers, babies, and Weddings.
One day a box came from something I had purchased. It was a big box and along with what I had bought the box was filled to the rim with packing peanuts. So I had asked the kids to come pick up the peanuts that may fall on the floor when I lifted out the contents. They did and then asked to play in this big box with the peanuts. At first I was like “no way”. I have been cleaning and that is the last mess that I want to clean up right now. After the kids begged and begged I realized what was the harm? Why was I being so resistant? Then I began to think of their fun playing and not worrying about my time having to clean up the mess.
This was a great lesson for me to just relax and go with the flow. To think about the small joy a box of packing peanuts would bring and not of the mess they would make. Enjoy the photos.
