Waste time faster and other musings ...

I saw this funny sign here the other day for high speed internet with power boost .I like it and I'd like it.

I am forever wasting time waiting for my connections to connect or pages to load .I just want to hurry them up. Then I waste time ...well not that I don't learn, laugh and cry as I connect with humanity.

There are 86,400 seconds in day and I waste too many of them.Exploring my time wasting activities is anxiety building.
Sometimes I stress about the time I waste on the Internet. Time I should could perhaps be using more wisely or productively.
Time I could be doing more cleaning ..nah , cooking , spending with my family and playing with precious little boys.
Little boys who are growing in the blink of an eye and soon won't want to be seen in public with me *sigh* play with me.

I have read some tragic news stories and blog posts recently of children dying too soon or disabled in accidents.

So, today take some time out to hold your children close.
Tell them how much they mean to you.
Show them.
Play with them.
Get down on the floor dirty, messy and laugh! ...with them and at them.
Time is fleeting don't waste it. Time spent with your children is never wasted.
Oh and don't wish whatever stage they are at to be over faster ... I so miss the snuggles of my tiny babies, though preschoolers do give the best hugs.
They keep me on my toes but I couldn't imagine it any other way!thanks Heather

I spent over an hour today with my 20yo and also managed too make my 18 yo dramatic and annoyed. One out of 2 ain't bad, ey? LOL.

Trish I am so with you this. They grow up so quickly. As hard as it is at times, I know I will miss having the little ones around me.

Thanks for the reminder. I fully intend to spend a weekend of playing with the kids and not a lot else. Mich x

This is a great reminder. I think I will go and play with the kids now. :-)

An oldie but a goodie, Trish. I totally agree. After years of wishing our pixies would go to sleep, I so rarely actually stop and look at them slumbering. I should do it more. J x

I often wonder about those wasted minutes on the www. It's important to have a balance, and enjoy every moment with those little people in our lives.
