1- I am reading The Dutch House. It is a good distraction. Highly recommend! This is my 4th Ann Patchett that I can recall (State of Wonder, Bel Canto, Commonwealth were the first 3). While I have enjoyed all of her books — especially Bel Canto! — this one is really really addictive and compelling. Recommend so far!
2- I did not meet many of my February goals. Oops. At least there are a few weeks still left in the quintile. I am also determined to get a start on a couple of them this weekend. (Extra bonus day on Saturday does help!)
3- Bra update!! Remember this post? SO. I used the fancy bra calculator which told me I was some crazy size, and ordered that size. And it turned out to be super uncomfortable! So, no. Sorry, calculator.
Even though many of you had fantastic suggestions, I ended up taking the easy route and re-ordering some Natori bras since I already had some that were very comfortable (just . . . aging). I used the same size I had previously been assigned at a Nordstrom several years ago. And . . . win! I am now the owner of several super comfortable go-to bras that are flattering. This one in particular is incredibly comfortable and has a perfect amount of padding and lift (for me). So, there you go!
4- Some links!
- Day in the Life: Working Mom of 3 by Jesse Coulter (future BOBW guest? maybe!)
- Saving Money Now to Buy Time in the Future by Simple Dollar. Just a thought-provoking read.
- How to Talk to Your Spouse About Money Without Fighting by A Healthy Slice of Life. We have a very similar style/process when it comes to this! They are even more organized, though. On our way 🙂
5- Obviously, the news is really really REALLY unsettling right now. I need to stop looking at CNN in particular. Picturing alternate dystopian versions of the future isn’t doing anyone any favors. One day at a time = my new mantra.
Josh is on call this weekend, but I am looking forward to it more than usual because I have some strategic babysitting lined up. On the docket: takeout sushi (Annabel’s request, and more of a treat because we haven’t done takeout in forever!), a Sunday afternoon playdate, and a leap day wedding. OH, and a cold front! BRRR. Can’t wait to get a crisp cold (!) run in on Sunday AM!
