This is Labor Day weekend and I’m so happy to have an extra day off. To start on the right foot, I wanted to share a few of my thankfuls from this week.
Here’s the big one…
• Barley’s fancy new collar and leash. I’m just beside myself at the thoughtfulness of one of my Twitter friends, Gail. She had a collar and leash made for Barley. It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. It’s green and has little schnauzers on it. I am so thankful to have such kind friends. Barley is the best dressed person in my whole family now!
Here are two smaller ones…
• Satellite radio is back! It’s another free preview weekend and I’m so excited to have Doctor Radio again. This morning, I learned about breast reconstruction. It was fascinating. I’ll try to remember more of the cool things I learn so I can share it here with you. I love medical stuff!
• I’m reading a book on natural eating and wanted to share something I never thought of before. The author equated eating to peeing. Whenever we have to pee, we don’t think too much about it. We feel it, we go pee, and we resume what we’re doing. It’s refreshingly uncomplicated. Then she asked us to imagine if we were told we have to pee exactly four times a day and one cup of pee each time. Imagine how much stress we’d have about peeing! What if you had to pee more or less often? Would you force yourself to go? And, how hard would it be to pee exactly one cup each time? Eating is the same, she argues. We should be able to go about our business, feel hungry, eat what we want, then go back to our lives without another thought about it. I really like that idea. If babies can do it, maybe we all can.
Have a great long weekend! Stay safe!
