Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body
It is about 3 more weekends to Chinese New Year. Though I prepare ahead of time, I am still very busy, especially on weekends.
We have already done with shopping and spring cleaning. I am now busy baking and busy working out at the same time. Input must be equivalent to output, so that I can still wear all my Chinese New Year clothes that I have bought months ago.
On weekends, my schedule is even more packed, I will be my girls' chauffeur, taking them to their Table Tennis training in the morning, Art and Craft lesson in the noon, then swimming course in the evening.
This day, I just took them back from Art and Craft lesson. I rushed them to finish off those unfinished art work and tidy up their colouring tools. I told them to quickly change into their swim suits, wear their swimming cap and goggles. I helped them to apply sunscreen lotion on their bodies. I asked them to give me a minute to go to bathroom, then we could leave home already. When I came out from bathroom, I saw them, both holding books to read, one standing, and another one sitting on floor.
|I pity them for having such a busy day until they need to squeeze out some time in between to do things that they really like, such as reading.|
p/s: Though they drive me to the wall too sometimes.
