Day 149 – Tuesday June 24th, 2014
I took the day off today to hang with our boys.
1. The Lego Movie
2. Mcdonalds for lunch
3. Chattahoochee Nature Center (to walk all trails)
4. Riverside Park’s playground
5. A shower
It was a fun day with the boys, although I did make the mistake of leaving my work email on my phone. I turned off my phone a couple times completely to battle back the temptation, but a few unfortunate message got through.
What I learned during this day?
I don’t want my job to ever overtake my family. It’s not healthy.
I need to spend more direct time with both boys together and alone. We saw folks fishing and doing other things. Perhaps I need to reconnect with some of those hobbies and take the boys out? I need to not only be a dad, but a fun teacher on some of these things.
I appreciate that you encouraged me to find a few days this summer to take off and just spend it with the family. It was a fun day.
