Time to K.I.S.S. again!
Today my advice: STAY HOME!
Now obviously I love doing stuff outside of my house. Field trips and dinners and play dates are great, but here's the truth:
Staying home is SOOOO much easier!
You can't stay home all the time. I can't stay at home all the time. But I think we can try to stay home much more than we do. I am making it my mission this year. Not just to stay home but to keep life SIMPLE.
Today is my first day flying solo. It's my first time since moving back to the States that I am the only grown-up for the entire day. We've decided not to jump right in and get a second vehicle. That means that whenever JB is working (or at a Conference like he is today), I don't have a vehicle. This means that I don't have any choice but to stay close to home and embrace what we have here. I can still walk to a park or go to the pool (if I am feeling very brave 1 on 4). We can ride bikes and go for walks and play in the backyard.
But we can avoid g-o-i-n-g.
Mannnnnnn is it easier to stay home than to go-go-go.
Think about it. Try it. Enjoy it.
