Neither Roy nor I, I in particular, do well with busyness. I simply wilt and find myself quite unable to go on if I have too many uncongenial things to do.
So we have taken a dramatic and drastic decision to next month dramatically and drastically cut Roy’s work hours. I.e., he is going to retire!!
Other things are more important–running a peaceful and orderly household, for instance.
I am looking forward to our family being less busy. Few families do well with it, and few people (except those with a poorly defined sense of self, who need constant validation from the outside world.)
