Take Your Hand Off the Mouse and Step Away From the Keyboard

Earlier I talked about how hot it’s been in Seattle this past week. We’ve been at home in the same room as our working fan (please don’t die on us now baby)! I realized only today that I’ve become like a Hermit Crab.
I have been posting like a mad woman the past few days and have gotten into a “Blog Groove.” This means that I have all kinds of blogging ideas coming into my head and reviews and giveaways that I’m posting.

This morning, my husband called and said I should take the kids out and do something fun…you know, get out of the hot house. I kind of got mad at him. I thought to myself, why does he want me to go out into the heat? I’m fine here. The kids are fine here. However, I took his advice and I feel so much better now!
Staying in the house without going out to do fun things with the boys causes many things to happen. I start creating drama, I get moody, and I get “blah” feeling. So I had to literally tell myself, “Shannon..take your hand off the mouse and step away from the keyboard.”
I went and put my makeup on, dressed the kids, and we walked out the door. We headed over to Seattle Center and hung out at the Pacific Science Center for a few hours (more on that Review and Giveaway to come). After snacks, we headed over to the fountain that is used as a community water activity – my boys and I had a blast!

Thanks George for getting me out of the chair and away from the computer! It was a day the boys and I needed to spend together. Now I’m starting to feel sleepy! Have a great day everyone!
