Busy Busy Busy

(A great song by Sandra Boynton)

I love this song -- lots of truth in a fun little tune that still manages to paint a picture of something pretty serious. And the busy busy busyness is something I have to be pretty intentional about managing. My time and energy can't keep up with all the things that draw my attention. It is important that I not allow too much activity to crowd out what really matters.

My busy busy busy tendencies are on the list of reasons I don't want to deal with my hair. The whole routine of wash-condition-dry-style is pretty simple, but still bothersome. I've got other things to do, after all, and stuff like hair can feel like a persistent intrusion in the day.

Oddly enough, a bottle of conditioner offers a gentle correction:
"Work into clean, wet hair. Use the next 2 minutes and 45 seconds to think deep thoughts about your day. Rinse with warm water, then cool water, then go."

Waiting is inevitable;
being cranky about it is optional.
