    84-Lancaster Farming. Saturday, May 27, 1995
Well the end-of-school, begin
ning-of-summer rat-race is upon
us! And this is supposed to be fun,
right? Well, I hope that you are
taking time during this holiday
weekend to spend time with your
family and to honor servicemen
who gave their time and their lives
for our country.
But if instead you find yourself
rushing—to multiple baseball
games, gatherings, meetings, and
errands—you are not alone. Just
because you’re not alone, doesn’t
mean you don’t deserve some
relief. Here are several ideas that
you may want to try. I borrowed
them from some of the “Earth
Day” literature—reduce and
Reduce the amount of things on
your schedule. Say to yourself and
your family, “Everything is not
going to get done.” Period. Make
some choices. Also, train yourself
to reduce clutter in your lives
before it accumulates. If you know
you’re not visiting a resort this
summer and you don’t need
another credit card, you can dis

festival opportunities. Which ones
will you do? Which ones will you
say “No” to?
You can also reduce clutter by
running a 15-minute pick-up drill
with your family. Assign each per
son to one room. For IS minutes,
you all scurry to straighten up,
store away or throw away, wipe
down, and spruce up a room. It’s
amazing what people can do when
the clock’s ticking. Promise to
take a break after IS minutes to
survey the results.
Reduce you expectations for
what a clean house is, what a fam
ily reunion should be, what a gra
duation party consists of. Make
them realistic pictures that you
and your family can accomplish.
And then remember that you
should not be pulling off the show
on your own. Who else can help.
If people offer to help, “What can
I bring/do?” be prepared with a list
of possibilities. Don’t say, "Oh,
nothing, just bring yourself.” Ask
you family to play an active role in

in travel, at meetings, and in idle
conversation. Can these be
reduced? How? Continually ask,
“What would happen if we didn’t
