Hi friends! A couple weeks ago I mentioned How to Keep House While Drowning: A Gentle Approach to Cleaning and Organizing by KC Davis and it came out this week so I wanted to link it again. It is such a useful book and I actually talked about it on this week’s All the Books! If you want to hear more about it. I’m sure I’ll share it with more detail as a resource here in a future issue.
Also a couple weeks ago I wrote about doing nothing and taking time to rest and I’ve been trying, I promise. I took a couple days off work and had a lot of down time. But I admit I get antsy and I am shit at doing nothing. It would not surprise you to know that I was The Worst™ at naps when I was a kid and I’m still not great at them as an adult. So, I’ve made a bit of a compromise with myself in that if I do find myself needing to do something, then it’ll be something that doesn’t fall under “productivity.” This has resulted in me getting back to teaching myself the ukulele. I have been using the Yousician app and I have been plucking away at exercises and found myself getting bored. I reminded myself that it is okay to not follow my weird, arbitrary rules for doing things and I decided that along with the exercises in the app I will also teach myself a song and that has refreshed my interest immensely.
