Odds and Ends


1. I will admit to enjoying time by myself more than most, but here are some really good reasons why being alone doesn’t have to mean being lonely.

2. I have a problem that is officially annoying the rest of my family since it’s been rampant for over a month. I simply can’t stop playing this album. Nonstop. All day. CAN’T STOP.

3. Prepare to cry. Just do.

4. You guys, it really, truly is pronounced “jif.” I just can’t do it, though!

5. Hey, moms! Who else is being “treated” to brunch tomorrow for Mother’s Day? You might really enjoy this. Ha!

6. Tesla just announced solar roof panels, and the whole thing is just super cool.

7. You guys, this is the newest threat from Trump. (WTF?!) And speaking of, I found this article on our attempts to interpret his actions very interesting. Good read.

8. How to compliment your kids in ways that are meaningful and empowering.

9. OMG. She must have gotten a REALLY BAD HAIRCUT.

10. Yep. This summer shirt shall be mine.

11. Is anyone listening to the S Town podcast? I’ve heard so many good things…thinking of starting.

Happy weekend to all of you fabulous peeps! Hope it’s a good one!

    Be careful. I don’t think worldnewsdailyreport is a credible site. I would double check to make sure this isn’t a link to fake news. This is the sort of thing I imagine Trump might believe, honestly.

    Halfway through my first listen of the Future Islands album and love it already. Thanks for the recommendation!
