Hire Your To-Do List

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 11:33:10 +0000

I finally read a piece of life-changing (or, at least, mind-changing) productivity advice: Hire your to-do list. So the article starts out talking about how we conduct our life as if the to-do list is in charge and we are working for the to-do list, rather than recognizing that we are the boss of our […]

#Microblog Monday 191: Book Pressure

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 09:23:33 +0000

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too. ******* I have been tearing through books lately, somewhat due to our weekend read-a-thon.  It also helped that the three books I read before the read-a-thon were on the shorter side.  I didn’t love them, but […]

The Coolest Optical Illusion in the World

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 11:06:02 +0000

The Verge has a very cool optical illusion that it borrowed from Reddit.  If you stare at the picture long enough, it disappears.  Stare at it for a few minutes without blinking.  The screen will go white in front of you if you relax your eyes.  If it doesn’t work for you below, click over […]

690th Friday Blog Roundup

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 11:26:38 +0000

The twins and I are having a read-a-thon this weekend.  Josh is busy with a committee he’s on, so we’ve made stacks of books and purchased a lot of snacks from Trader Joe’s.  We plan on reading books and eating Cat Cookies for People non-stop all weekend. The Wolvog is reading Moonwalking with Einstein and […]

Replace Instead of Resist

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 12:01:16 +0000

I used up one of my monthly free New York Times articles reading an extremely short piece about how replacement works better than resistance when it comes to breaking bad habits.  So whenever you get the urge to do your bad habit… let’s say… eat a handful of cookies (what? They’re small!), you do something […]

The Myth of Delegation

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 11:42:29 +0000

I learned from the title of a Forbes article that 9 – 5 was out and 1 – 6 was in.  I was intrigued because I can barely get everything done working 9 – 5. (Or… really… more like 8 – 8, but who is counting?) How would I get the same amount of work […]

#Microblog Monday 190: Ikigai

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 09:29:05 +0000

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too. ******* I didn’t hear about hygge until hygge was everywhere, so I am especially excited that I heard about ikigai before it jumped the shark.  What is ikigai, you ask? It’s the newest addition to our […]

“We Covet What We See”

Sun, 15 Apr 2018 11:13:51 +0000

There was a Carolyn Hax column this week that resonated so deeply that I left it starred in my inbox so I could keep thinking about it everyday.  The situation didn’t fit my life, but the advice was spot-on… well… for everyone. The question was about a person who sabotaged his/her brother’s relationship because he/she […]

689th Friday Blog Roundup

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 13:06:37 +0000

Hey.  Maybe you’ve been thinking that you want to learn programming basics; things like conditionals, variables, or arrays.  Or maybe you have a kid, and you want them to learn how to program.  Or maybe you’re staring down summer, wondering how you are going to fill the brains in your household.  Or maybe you’re a […]

Travel Hacks

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 11:36:22 +0000

When we went to Montreal, we packed two suitcases.  We checked the larger one and took the smaller one as a carry-on.  The small suitcase contained our toothbrushes and toothpaste, one complete outfit for each person, and our pyjamas.  If the main suitcase got lost, we bought ourselves at least 24 hours without losing anything […]
