Have a “We Menu”

May 21, 2012

in the generous life

Susan (of The Confident Mom) wrote a lovely post titled Finding Time for Mom. She shared a number of ideas, but one in particularly stood out to me.

Have a “Me Menu”

Often times when I ask moms what they enjoy doing, they are left speechless.  It seems they have forgotten the things that brought them joy or activities they once enjoyed doing.  Take some time to jot down ideas of what you would like to do if you had 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, an hour and several hours.  Keep this list handy so that if you happen to get 15 minutes of time, you can look at your list and make that time useful for you!

A “Me Menu” is a great idea, but why not create a “We Menu” as well? What could you do with your husband if you had 5 minutes of couple time, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, an hour or several hours. Create a list and keep it handy.

Neat idea – Robert and I work from home and it would be very satisfying if we could have a ‘jar’ to pull from with ideas for just 5 or 10 minutes of fun time… Gotta give it some thought.

I love this idea! I’ve been writing down date ideas on Popsicle sticks since I saw/borrowed the idea of “date night in a jar” from another blogger. Since my husband keeps an odd schedule with his late night hours, it’s especially handy to have ideas ready. One of the things we like to do…If we only have a few minutes together, my husband and I like to pray together. If we have 15-30 minutes, we like to read a Scripture passage before he leaves and discuss it together. If it’s longer, we have a deeper time of devotions together.
