Jenny's Thoughts: The Laundry Can Wait...
Written by: Jenny
Do you ever feel like you get into a ‘weekend rut’? Here’s what I mean. My husband and I both work all week. So, weekends have no choice but to involve a trip to the grocery store, a Target run, car wash and errands. I mean, those things aren’t going to do themselves, right?!
But, lately we’ve realized something else that’s super important… fun! Life can’t be all about working and keeping up with chores, right? So, we decided to change things up this past weekend and it was so FUN, refreshing and we made some cool family memories along the way.
Thing is – we live in a fantastic city full of all sorts of things to do that we probably overlook on the day-to-day because… well, that’s life! The Streetcar. We’d read about it. We’d seen it. But, we’d never taken a ride! So, we kicked off the day at the amazing farmer’s market at The City Market. I got the most beautiful, huge bouquet of flowers for $10! We stocked up on fresh fruits and veggies. We even picked up some homemade doggie treats for the pups.
Then, we took the Streetcar from River Market to Union Station where we checked out the Dinosaurs Revealed exhibit. Super convenient – it dropped us off steps away from the front doors! And, the whole family enjoyed the exhibit (educational and cool… win-win!).
After that we stopped for some food and spent technology-free time enjoying each other’s company. That in itself was just really, really nice.
So, my point? Switch up your routine. It’s so easy to get caught up in the everyday chaos of life that sometimes we forget the very thing we’re supposed to be doing… living.
