The thing is, it sounds like a lot, but when you do it at your OWN pace, with NO interruptions beyond the ones you make for yourself, it's EASY to get things done. The trick, at least for me, is to just do it. No waiting, no procrastination, just do it. And then it's done and you can rest or nap or read or play or wrestle with the kids. There's always something to do, and always something waiting. I'd rather get it over with than let it pile up and loom over me. And if I count the reading and the napping and the playing with the kids as equally important, instead of something I'm doing INSTEAD, why then it's more fun to do things as the impulse strikes or opportunity occurs.
I was going to grab a particularly cool photo of Karin bouncing on the trampoline and post it for you, but it turns out that she took the camera outside this afternoon to take photos of Martin and 2 friends bouncing, left it outside and it has subsequently disappeared completely. Anders is outside with a flashlight hunting and I'm inside fuming. It's times like this when it's a good thing that you aren't allowed to beat your children. ARGH
