Procrastination Fodder for Monday

It's a rainy, chilly (for Texas in May) Monday morning, which meant it was hard to wake up and get moving this morning. But the kids were delivered to school on time and now I am lucky enough to be at home--have I mentioned I love working for my husband?--but later on I will probably have an errand to run that will take a couple of hours. For now I am ensconced on the couch in comfy clothes, but I am determined not to take a nap instead of getting the week off to a useful start. I need to do some yoga and get groceries before lunch.

I love it when bloggers post lists of links for me to explore, so I've decided to start sharing things I've found on the web that intrigued me recently. I originally thought I might post these on Fridays, but the end of the week is a low-traffic time for blogs as everybody tries to finish up before the weekend; and then the weekend! I don't know about you, but this time of year is so busy that you might not get a chance to check out some links when you supposedly have time off.

Plus, Mondays are a great time to procrastinate enjoy some interesting food for thought--when you've already done some work and are ready for a break, of course! (Imagine me winking here--my real-life winks are the most obvious thing in the world; I can't wink at all with my left eye and basically have to concentrate and squinch that side of my face up to wink with my right. Yes, I am so cool.)

Without further ado, here are some things I wanted to show you.


Are you the default parent? If you have to think about it, you’re not. You’d know. 
(This article includes a few four-letter words, FYI.)

It's amazing I ever get anything done.


I don't watch makeup video tutorials on a regular basis, but in this satirical video, YouTuber Amy Geliebter shows what it can be like living with depression in a society full of stigma: “First start with priming your face with a nice, thick coat of chemical imbalance....For our eyes, we’re going to be using the shade, ‘just be happy’ for our base.”



A really interesting take on the four levels of relationship. "We run into trouble at the point where our behavior and our relationship status diverge."

What sort of psychopath rips out pages from their favorite books and throws away the rest so they can, as [organizing guru Marie] Kondo puts it, “keep only the words they like?”
I can give away some books but I could NEVER do that. (Why? What purpose would that even serve?)

That took much longer than it should have, with the cutting and the pasting and what not, but it was still more fun than unloading the dishwasher or going to the grocery store! Let me know what you think about any or all of these links! I'm off to do some yoga (or to read a few blogs first...shhh, I won't tell anyone if you won't.)

  1. Ripping out pages...what? That is...insane. What a waste of a book! Also, if there are only a few pages in a book that you like, maybe just donate that book. Good grief!
