My husband won't let me take my laptop...

Thursday, May 22, 2008
The holiday weekend is almost here and we are going camping near Squam Lake in NH. As much as I love camping with my family, I have a hard time being away from an Internet connection for that long. It is my IV therapy I guess. Is that sad or what? I have not yet purchased a BlackBerry (which is the device I am leaning towards) so I will be without email or an Internet connection for almost 72 hours.

As I continue to read through the 1,000+ tips from over 400 mom entrepreneurs who responded to my query on how to find some balance between work and life, I am finding a common theme. Many women have suggested creating quality time with the family that is free from all of the noise of our entrepreneur lives. This is such great advice. I was glad to see this as one of the most popular tips suggested by mom entrepreneurs. I agree that this is so important to do. My children are the most precious gift I have ever been given and I will never take this for granted.

Everyone is very excited for the weekend. My 3 1/2 year old can't wait to climb a mountain...even though he has never climbed one before. We will be with our extended family and the weather in that area is supposed to be beautiful everyday.

I wish you a happy holiday weekend and encourage you to spend quality time with your family. Get away from the hustle and bustle of your busy life and breathe. Enjoy!
