Hello, Friends! How are you? You made it to Friday! Did you happen to have a rough week? It seemed like such a hard one to me. I was truly grateful for the end of every single day.
Any plans for the weekend? It’s a working weekend for me. I missed so many hours this week for parenting stuff and now I’m behind. But that’s okay. There was nothing on my schedule anyway, and part of the work I need to do involves errands, which will get me out of the house. How about you? I hope you have something fun planned!
We heard from Maude. She has arrived in Paris, and she’s safely back at her apartment. (Sigh of relief). I’m wishing her lots of sleep this weekend so she can get over her jetlag quickly.
I’ve got to tackle some email, but first here are a few things I’ve been wanting to share with you:
Do you or did you carry your babies mostly on your left hip? You’re not alone, and this is why.
My dear friend, Laurie Smithwick’s TEDx talk on being an idea person is so good!
He knits a sweater of a place he wants to visit, then takes a picture of himself wearing the sweater at that place. My takeaway from the whole thing: DO WHAT YOU LOVE.
A two-week tattoo. Any interest?
Church shouldn’t be this hard. Would love your thoughts.
Goodbye tunnel tree. I never got to see you in person.
“American culture can’t accept the reality of a woman who does not want to be a mother.”
A ballet school in an unexpected place.
What if your job was eating tacos?
If you’re obsessed with being French.
Hah! Hipsters broke my gaydar. (NYT)
Why are cell phone plans the worst?
I hope you have a delightful weekend. I’ll meet you back here on Monday. I miss you already.
