Have you ever tried to do something requiring some level of concentration while the kids are awake? Playing. With the TV on. Or, maybe just indulging in their favorite past time — arguing.
If you haven’t, I think you’re probably in the wrong place. Keep moving, folks. Nothing to see here.
If you have, you might be interested in something I discovered last week. It occurred to me that, if I just had something to kind of quietly drown out the sound of the TV, maybe I could concentrate.
White noise! That’s the ticket!
So, I googled (or should that be Googled?) white noise and came up with this really awesome white noise site that allows you to listen free up to 25 times per month, or you can buy a subscription or buy the MP3 version to keep. I’m thinking the up-to-25-times-free will be plenty for me. Although I wouldn’t mind having one or two the MP3’s on my iPod.
It was the perfect solution. I was able to concentrate on what I was doing while listening to the relaxing sounds of a thunderstorm or the crashing of ocean through my headphones.
The only problem was, it kind of made me want to go to sleep.
