First of all — another giant thank you to the many who responded to Lily (and Lily, who responded back so thoroughly and kindly!) on Thursday’s post! You all are amazing and make writing here so much fun.
Second, Megan shared a great link in the comments: The Diderot Effect from James Clear. I’ve heard the story/idea before, but I love his examples.
(I still kind of want the new iPhone 12 mini though. I’ve been using an 8 and I’m starting to be over it. Sigh.)
AND, I still haven’t been able to fix the “Health App” issue that causes me to be unable to change my alarm settings. Good thing I don’t really mind getting up early most days . . .
. . . and no one is on call! Woohoo. I am not sure what we will be doing; probably some Halloween prep (big kids have been insistent about putting up some kind of non-scary decorations) and mayyyyybe even pumpkin carving.
I am going to attempt to do my nails so that my Olive & June mani kit does not sit around as an aspirational purchase, and will likely read more of my current novel & take a nap when G does (because of course).
Finally, I will share a video that I feel will live on for posterity (getting to the end is key; don’t worry, it’s only 30 seconds). I feel like this perfectly captures RIGHT NOW.
Also this will be an experiment as I don’t think I’ve ever attempted to embed video directly before!
