The Art of Staying Home

Sister tells me, “I just can’t do this.  I could never stay home.  I’m doing things with my glue gun, I’ve polished the silver, polished the stainless steel, the laundry is done and folded, my house is clean, and now I’m bored.”   And, it was only 11:00am.   I explain “Oh, well, it sounds like you are doing to too much.  You have to pace yourself you know?”  And, when she tells me she is hungry (over the phone), I remind her to only eat one meal, because the day is still young and she could accidentally eat two lunches.  Learn from my experiences.  It happens so quickly that you are not even aware until it is too late.  Much too late.
