The Pondering Fawn: Fifteen Minutes

Welcome to a new (semi) regular feature on So Fawned: The Pondering Fawn. From now on, when the mood strikes, I'll be publishing these posts of pondering to see what you, my most fabulous readers, have on your minds. Enjoy, participate & if you have an idea for a Pondering Fawn question, feel free to send me a little email.

...

The other night I was at a La Leche League meeting and one of the ladies posed this question: What can you accomplish if you have 15 minutes of undisturbed time?

The answers varied, but all had a similar tone. Several women said they'd do dishes, most said they'd fold laundry. A brand new mom said she would eat, shower & pee and another said she'd have sex.

I said I could clean my whole kitchen (since it's the room that is first seen when you enter our apartment).

It seems so amazing how efficient I can be now that I have a babe. Imagine if I'd always been able to do so much in so little time -- the world could have been mine! Fifteen minutes seems like an ETERNITY to me now & there are days where I certainly don't have that luxury. Many days.

Phew.

So, mamas (and other busy folks, of course!), what can you get accomplished in 15 minutes?

squeeze in a quick workout by either swimming about 600 yards or running 1.5 miles (i'm not fast at either!)

Mmm yes, editing photos is something I wish I had a little more time for.
I've barely been taking photos which is SHAMEFUL :(

More often than not, my fifteen minute windows get eaten up by Facebook. Boo! I want to be using those spaces to write, but it's so hard when you know you'll be interrupted any minute. I also wish I could power nap.
