My life is broken up into 15 minute increments. I want to create a mom clock, instead of hours it will have 15 minute blocks, because that seems to dictate my life. Drop the older kids at school, 15 minutes until preschool drop off – stop home, pop in a load of laundry, clear the breakfast dishes, grab a yogurt for the car.
Another option is dry cleaners, mail letters at the post office. And then after yoga, desperately, much needed, couldn’t skip shower, followed by another 15 minutes before preschool pick up – options – return books to library and call mom but not sister because we would be on too long. Mom doesn’t talk as much. And in the afternoon, its drop son at soccer, drop off older daughter at ballet, pick up younger daughter at a friend’s house and then 15 minutes until soccer pick up – options watch practice, have younger daughter watch a movie in the car or both watch practice from the car while she watches a movie – which is what I inevitably choose. This is followed by 15 minutes until ballet pick up…. Living on mom time baby!
What do you do with your 15 minutes? Who has ideas about how to manage and maximize small increments of time?
