Aren’t there just some days you need to crank up the music and say, “Let’s Dance!” There are definitely those moments around our house. Especially when cleaning is involved. ha! Music makes all tasks seem better when getting your groove on, right?! Tell me I’m not the only one who belts out in song and twirls around the house with two mopping towels under my feet. You should try it. It may surprise you how fun cleaning can actually be! And here’s the main kicker…shhhh (the kids think its fun too!). And if you can get the kids involved, you’ve just accomplished something great. Memories are made and keeping a home tidy, organized, and clean is made fun. Win, win and win.
Twirl on over with me to this thought….wouldn’t dance lessons be so fun to take with your spouse? This is on my someday bucket list with my man. Like real dancing. I’ve always wanted to learn a few ‘legit steps’ on the dance floor beside my go-to sway, grocery cart, lawn mower, moon walk, and raise the roof. Yes, I grew up in the 90’s. Letting go and dancing is a fun way to take a break from the mundane and live with a little more pep in your step while at home.
Come on, turn the music up and, “Let’s Dance.” You, your home, and your lil’ people will be happy you do. Oh, and don’t forget your hubs would like a little dance too I’m sure. wink.
Okay so go on out, grab a few friends, and find your ‘professional local couples dance studio’ (ummm yes, we may have to check the Senior Center or Community Grange Hall. Lol.)… maybe your husband will ‘Christmas Gift’ you with him showing up to a few lessons with you. Then at next years Christmas party or family wedding there will be no excuses for standing in the corner for either of you. It would be a hoot.
