Relax Already: Become a Player

After a long day's work, cooking, putting the girls to bed, but before cleaning up the dinner mess and packing lunches for the next day - I like to play a game of Suduko (also spelled Sudoku) or a couple of rounds of Text Twist( I just play the web version - it's free and quick). Numbers or words? Sometimes it is hard to choose which one to play. But they're both on line, so they're both easy to access. And the Suduko page comes with the answers. Which is important because, I will admit, I do cheat a little to save time. Plus not figuring out the answers can be stressful, and that is not what this is about.

It is a little brain challenge time combined with a little "me" time. I get to focus on something entertaining, challenging and ultimately frivolous. For some reason the focused time helps me unwind and focus better on the tasks at hand - like packing a well balanced lunch for a picky almost 4 year old.
