I think this has been my sparsest week yet as far as posting goes! I was out of town for a few days, but since technology is so portable these days that hardly counts as an excuse. I’ll have some more great content coming up next week, but here’s a light post to tide you over.
I was reading an article in Redbook magazine about a movie coming out called I Don’t Know How She Does It (which, by the way, sounds pretty funny, and I’d probably like to see it!). It’s about a working mom who doesn’t do a good job of balancing everything and has some funny mishaps along the way. One of the questions asked of the actresses was, “We’ve been called the ‘Having it All’ generation of women. How does that phrase resonate in your own life?” Aline Brosh McKenna said, “I would describe my approach as: Having Some But Not All Things Some of the Time, with breaks for snacks.” I love it. Especially the breaks for snacks part. Because isn’t that so true? Some days, I whip out four loads of laundry, exercise, and make a sewing project, so then the only energy I have left for dinner is throwing a frozen pizza in the oven. And I’m totally okay with that.
Stay tuned for some a Tasty Tuesday post about cabbage, Thoughtful Thursday reflections on parental relationships, and hopefully some craft projects and a guest post from my mom. Have a great weekend!
