In the Meantime...

All moms know that you try to make the absolute most out of every single moment of the day. With so many "to-do's" that are just part of the job, the "want-to's" get relegated to those snatches of "meantimes". You know what I mean right? While waiting on the phone you_____ ,while eating your lunch you_____ ,while cooking supper you______. The blanks get filled in with bits like cut out words for your paintings. Or wrote a quick blogpost, or checked fb, or threw another coat of modge podge or paint on whatever project you're working on, or desperately hunt for your son's overdue library books. It's all part of the job. If you can do several things at once you feel like you've accomplished something. If you actually slow down enough to do one thing at a time you probably feel like you're wasting time or not accomplishing what you need to. Maybe it's not just a mom thing, but I know that I recognized myself doing it more once I became a mom.
So today, while eating a late lunch and in the hopes of posting this before I have to pick up my son in half an hour, I thought I'd show you some of the things I've cobbled together during my "meantimes" this week.

Amen sister! Trying not to let the "to do" list get me down sometime is a challenge. I feel like the world is working against me and trying to keep me from doing something for me. I think staying organized helps squeeze those productive moments for all they are worth! Moms are amazing creatures. Beautiful pieces of "meantime."
