How Do You Cope?
About a week ago I had this crazy idea. I decided that I was going to cancel t.v. in our house so that my kittens wouldn't waste a single minute this summer. I felt so empowered. I'll post a report at the end of this vacation as to whether unplugging t.v. was indeed a good idea. I also had each kitten make a list of things they wanted to accomplish this summer (practice piano, read etc.) and I laminated those lists and hung them on the fridge. It's sounds over ambitious and to be honest those lists will be forgotten in a week and we'll be enjoying spontaneous summer adventures. I'm not the only one who needs to adjust. The kittens look a little shocked too and it's nice to ease them in. Also with the lists if they say, "I don't know what to do," even once, I'll send them right to the fridge to figure it out.
If you have any ideas about how you cope with summer vacation...please share!
