Happy weekend, friends!
Yesterday, I posted a question to Facebook: What do you do when you misplace something in your house? Do you have a ritual to track down whatever has gone astray? And, are you the “finder”—the person who can locate anything—in your family? I am, so when I can’t find something that’s missing, I am extremely frustrated. It feels like I’ve let everyone down.
Friends chimed in with advice: say a prayer to St. Anthony, walk away from the problem and come back to it tomorrow, have a glass of wine, or bribe the kids to find it. And, everyone commiserated. I did a little digging and found out that losing things is common (though we can combat it); it’s part of getting older—and having way too much going on.
I never did find the missing item, but I’m hopeful it will turn up—once I stop thinking about it, that is.
As we approach the weekend, I’m sharing writing I’ve found during my journey around the Internet this week. I share them in the hopes they send you off inspired and aware.
—Organic food is good for you, and here’s a report to prove it.
—Looking to destress? Try out these free coloring books from libraries and museums from around the world.
—Struggling with writer’s block? Sometimes, you just have to hunker down and write.
—What’s tone policing and how to respond to it
—When your kid is ready to quit, tell them this.
Wishing you a cozy and comfortable weekend,
