Mom Spot: Things I Can Do In 10 Minutes or less

Now that I have two kids in school, it means two drop off time and two pick up times. It also means having little windows of time that I don't want to waste. I realized this about ten minutes before I had to leave to get my preschooler. I had accomplished all of the "big" things I need to get finished, but I just couldn't waste those precious minutes! Here's my own personal brainstorm of things I could do in 10 minutes or less... feel free to comment and leave your own ideas!

  • fold a pile of laundry
  • sort through the week's mail
  • clean off and wipe down my kitchen counters
  • wash the miscellaneous dishes in the sink
  • dream up something wonderful for dinner (ie. browse my cookbooks)
  • call a friend (or text three friends!)
  • empty small household trash cans into larger trash and take it out
  • do a mini-clean in the bathroom
  • do a "sweep" of the floors and move all toys/shoes/etc. to their proper places
  • take a plastic grocery bag out to the car and get all the junk out of the back seat (maybe the front seat too...)
  • on a spiritual note: ask God to bring to mind people who need to be prayed for - take the time to be quiet and pray! OR open your Bible and read your favorite Bible passage
  • lay down on the floor and practice some deep breathing or simple Pilates
  • arrive early to your destination with a couple of magazines you've been wanting to leaf through
The possibilities are endless! Have a super day!
