Today we decided to “Check out” for a day. No phones, no computer, no piles of clothes or paper, no dishes, no bickering kids…
We grabbed our dog, stocked our van with a weeks’ worth of food, and headed to the Marin Headlands for a day. We had a fabulous day, and now the husband, the kids, and the dog are sleeping blissfully.
I released myself from all responsibilities for day, and guess what? The house is still standing as I type :).
Give yourself permission to “check out” for a day, or even a few hours today.
