Don’t worry, this isn’t going to be a conversation about life/work/family balance. Goodness knows I have no idea how to do that. I’m working at a coffee shop this morning because I am so distracted by my adorable and chirpy family at home that a thirty minute task can take me two hours.
Yesterday W and I had some serious cabin fever. I had tons of work to do and he had tons of desire to get out and play in the snow. We went out and created a snow village and shoveled the sidewalks and dug out the car. We played until we were frozen.
Later in the evening, when I was finally able to close my computer, W and I turned on the balance game. It’s a multi-player game on the shape program I got Mom for Christmas last year. The goal is to hold your hands up above your head and virtually collect the shapes on a board you are balancing on your hands.
The first couple of times W played it he used the balance board like some sort of giant chopstick thwacking the shapes around. He has now gotten very good at getting still and staying still. We only started this game during the holiday break, but we both have come a long way.
Now, if only I could balance the rest of my life as well as I can balance cubes.
