Taxes, Taxes, Taxes - take a break for fun!

It's that time of the year again where I feverishly work on getting my taxes together for our accountant.  My husband and I are self employed and the receipts from the year are really overwhelming.  Even though they are put together at the end of each month in 4 different envelopes and are pretty organized, I alway find the stress of wrapping up the year is too much to take.  This year I find it to be more difficult with being out of our home for the past couple of months and with all the extra receipts from the numerous doctors appointments.  That being said, I planned ahead today. I knew I would be working all morning on taxes while my daughter was at school, so I planned a trip to a local park by her school on the way home to get a break and some fresh air.  As I passed the park on the way to her school, I noticed that there was a tractor and grounds crew raking the sand, I thought  REALLY, (the only day in several months that I am planning to go to this park and relax for a half hour). But I didn't get discouraged.  I thought maybe they will be gone by the time I get back.  I picked up my daughter and headed to the park.. We pulled in and they were still working on the sand.  My daughter was a bit discouraged and I said, let's be positive!  Mommy has to put her make-up on and when I am done, I bet they will be done.  She didn't seem to buy into it, but was patient anyway.  And wouldn't you know it as soon as I put on my finishing touches of mascara,  they pulled out and were done!  Viola!  Patience and positive thinking really do work!  We played for 40 minutes, hide-n-seek, climbing the slides, monkey bars, driving the (pretend) ship to keep away from the sharks and I even got some creative time in when we were swinging singing our song that I wrote about swinging at the park..  I was ready to go and tackle the afternoon of more receipts and got great quality time in with me daughter.  It doesn't take much and you can alway fit it in. What we learned:  Never give up hope, positive thinking does work, make the time to take the time and mommy even at 47 will try to do the monkey bars by taking a lead from my daughters youthful spirit.  What we shared:  Quality time, a wonderful afternoon of sunshine, fun and creative play. 
Be positve and have fun!  Dyan
