What are you up to this week? We had three of our dear friends down to visit this past weekend and I’m headed to Indianapolis next weekend to spend time with my bestie and podcasting co-host, Katie. We’ll be recording a live episode of our show and also seeing My Favorite Murder on tour. I’m so freaking excited!!! Suffice it to say, a work week book-ended by all this fun is not the easiest. ; ) Hope you have a great Wednesday, and here are a few things I’ve enjoyed reading this week…
Why people wait 10 days to do something that takes 10 minutes.
A bright kitchen makeover honoring vintage wares.
On a new luxury retreat and Silicon Valley ageism.
Yum! Hummus breakfast tacos.
An interview with Aminatou Sow on all things financial.
See you later, post-vacation blues!

We’ve always hated girls online.

Over the past couple of years I’ve made it a priority to do daily tasks “right now” instead of later as much as possible, and out of making it a habit it’s working for me. I do the dishes as I use them (while I’m cooking) and that’s probably the biggest favor I’m doing myself when it comes to chores. My worst “could do it later” problems are things like phone calls for appointments; I’ve been telling myself for weeks to go ahead and call a spa to book a massage with the gift certificate Dan gave me for Christmas…it’s beyond me that I can’t prioritize this thing when I’ve been reminding myself to do it almost daily.
Yes! I’ve been working on that the last few years too…if a chore or task will take ten minutes or less, I try to do it immediately. But those admin-y things allude me! I will put off a phone call for as long as humanly possible. (And get so frustrated with myself that once I actually make a call it takes like 2 minutes LOL.) I’m the same with personal emails!
Now, go book that massage! You deserve it. ❤
