Winter Sports And Why I Avoid Them

Winter Sports Videos

Winter is almost over and this is the time when parents start feeling a little overwhelmed and kids succumb to cabin fever.  Do you need a break from being indoors? There are lots of snow activities you can participate in. If you can’t afford the fancy places – improvise! I was surprised how many ways there are to improvise with winter sports. [just Google it]

Have you tried any of these winter sports?

  • Snowkiting
  • Snowshoe running
  • Skiing
  • Hockey
  • Sledding
  • Snowtubing
  • Ice Skating
  • Snowmobiling
  • Snowboarding
  • Ice Fishing
  • Snowball fights
  • Building snowmen or snow forts
  • or of the varieties of many sports and activities listed.

I have decided to avoid all of them after watching this snow sports blooper video:

Really, they involve cold and wet and I’m fine here by my fire with a good book. :)

Fun Music Videos To Delay Housework

Fun Music Videos To Delay Housework

I like to waste time on YouTube. Wait – let’s call it an escape, a break, or a stress reliever; they sound better. Except, usually when my computer starts to emit noise my children come running, “What’s that Mommy? I want to watch.” Oh well, at least it keeps them quiet for 3-5 minutes.

One of our favorite channels to go waste time at is The Piano Guys. Me and My Cello is my favorite because of the story portrayed in the video – especially when the cello loses weight!

This one is fun because it is five guys around one piano. Please forgive me for getting a One Direction song stuck in your head, but isn’t it neat when he takes the cello bow and uses it on the piano!?

If you have Star Wars fans at your house you’ve got to show them this Cello Wars video. Darth Vader plays the accordion!

You can even justify it a bit if your children watch with you because you are furthering their music education, right?

I’d love to know what some of your favorite videos are to waste time – I mean relieve stress. Leave a comment and let me know!
