This past weekend our family headed out to Spirit Mountain Casino to celebrate my mom's 50th birthday. It was a great time both in the casino and hanging out in the restaurants and up in the rooms (Mr. Kawaii and I rented a suite for the night so there would be room for our entire gang to hang out in), and although the excitement of the weekend left us all exhausted it was certainly a perfectly timed break from working and writing.
Time and time again, Mr. Kawaii reminds me of the importance of scheduling time away from work; and time and time again he is proved right. It is very easy as a stay-at-home worker bee to work constantly, and even easier to get burnt out when projects pile up and we get overwhelmed. Taking a step back and living life a little helps to keep things in perspective.
To all of you - keep up the good work on your own projects, and celebrate your success by taking a day or two off!
