The inspiration for this post actually came a few days ago, based on a reply to one of my facebook statues:
My post: Watching Monster's Inc w/ the little one. I forgot how hilarious this movie was.
Reply: Come outside! You've been in the house too long lol
That reply really got me thinking. As a parent, I dedicate so much of my non-working time to my family, I find it easy to forget that it is equally important to take time for yourself to pursue my own interests, as least once in a while. That led me to the following question: How do you know it's time to get out of the house, or get a "life"? The following flowcart should answer that question for you pretty quickly. Take a look and see where you fit!
