I have a conundrum…tonight is Zumba night…but tonight is also when 2 of my kids need help working on posters for different school projects. Zumba is from 7:00-8:00 but I would be gone from about 6:40 – 8:15 (prime project-making time). I’ll also have to fix dinner before I leave, so working on the projects before Zumba won’t really be an option.

I could get them started on their projects, go to Zumba, then come back and help them finish up…


I can skip Zumba for tonight and just help them with their projects.

Points of interest:

  • My husband is out of town so he’s not available to help the kiddos
  • I haven’t worked out or exercised all week, so it’s not like I’m afraid of messing up a solid work out schedule
  • One of the kiddos is 17 and can probably manage this project on his own, but it’s his poster for Senior Night and I sort of feel like I should help him with it (it’s due tomorrow).
  • youngest’s project isn’t due until Monday but she’s a go-getter and will continue to nag at me until we get it finished. She wants to start it and finish it tonight.

Seriously, I don’t know what to do. These are the things that come up when we try to get healthy and sometimes it’s not so easy to see the answer.

What would you do???
