Purchase a dishwasher. Seriously, I think I JUST became a Real Adult.
Lovely links lately . . .
☆ Finance/budgeting/investing is not something I know much about, nor is it something I've ever been particularly drawn to. However, I am loving The Simple Dollar lately. Here are his thoughts on one of my favorite topics: time.
☆ Another time-themed post from fellow paper enthusiast zoe at home: How my view of time has changed since having children
☆ I really enjoyed this post today from Caitlin: 3 ways to challenge your personal narrative. There are so many negative (tired!) narratives floating around in our culture today, and I agree with her that they are unproductive and can be damaging. I hope that by writing this blog I do contribute to the collection of positive narratives out there, in my own small way.
☆ I am kind of into minimalist blogs now, even though I am FAR from a minimalist -- on the outside, anyway. Through miss minimalist, I discovered The Gardener's Cottage, a sweet, interesting and very positive blog. Check out the post having just enough.
☆ I am sooooooo not "primal" or grain-free, nor do I aspire to ever follow a full paleo-style diet. But I am a little bit intrigued by the movement, and acknowledge that it can work for some people. (Anyone have experiences to share?). I also would like to learn more about it for my patients. Though there are certainly many controversial ideas on Mark's Daily Apple, I found this post on exercise to be very straightforward and powerful: Will we ever accept that exercise is often the best medicine?
☆ Proof that I could never fully claim to be minimalist: I am getting excited to shop again, though I am not at my 'forever' size yet (at least I don't think so!) so I can't go too crazy. That said, I'm loving the online inspiration from my favorite fashion blogs. Recent useful EA post: Work and weekend dresses under $100.
