A day behind is a metaphor for my week! But that’s probably acceptable, after all Monday was a holiday, right? (Just smile and nod.)
This week was long and full but not SUPER overwhelming, so that is a plus. But I am definitely still playing a little catch up in work and in life this morning. (And so is Garrett, as you can tell by the state of the lawn above. Every time Buster goes outside it looks like he is having a jungle adventure.)
The good thing is I slept super well this week so while my schedule was nuts, I was ready to rise to the occasion. Also, on Monday I got to have fun dinner with friends and last night we went to an awesome game night with friends. Definitely winning in the fun department this week, and luckily this weekend is free of any kind of demands so I can just putter around my house doing the things I want (which includes steam mopping my floors — WE’RE GETTING CRAZY AROUND HERE )
Hope you all have a fun weekend too! Now, shall we get on to some links:
*Holy Cow! Kelly McGongal’s talk on How to Make Stress Your Friend blew my mind!
*You’re not going to wake up younger tomorrow: Go Do!
*Have you heard of the concept of Pain Gaps. I can definitely relate.
*Have time for a bit of a meatier read? Check out Hanna Rosin’s Murder by Craigslist from The Atlanic. Simultaneously disturbing but FASCINATING!
*Two recipes I want to make when I am finished with our Whole 30:
Berry Cream Bars
Paleo Cocoa Puffs
Yes I acknowledge they are both treats or junk food or sex with your pants on or WHATEVER. But it’s also Day 5 of my Whole 30 so LET ME FANTASIZE, WILL YOU?
*While I don’t know if this is “fun” per se, I really enjoyed 7 Lessons I’ve Learned About Life & Love From Loss. The hardest times in my life have taught me the most.
*Tangentially related: Don’t Waste Your Time.
*I know the phrase mind-blowing is over used, but come on — some of these really are when you sit down and think about them.
* You wouldn’t put your kid on a bike without a helmet. Don’t let them head out to the sports field without reading this.
That’s what’s up this week. Enjoy your weekend whatever you do!
