Eat Pizza Every Day. Ride Bikes Twice Every Day.
Yesterday, I did not eat pizza. Today, I did not feel as good as I had been feeling. So, either I really did jinx it by posting, or my theory that pizza is a health food is correct. However, it was still not terrible. Much of the day was pretty good. And I am making good use of this time, thanks to lucky timing and my son. Tuesday, O’s grandfather took Orion and his bike to practice...
I can now add this to my "Things I Have Seen...
You now that one family that complains about every tiny little infraction to the HOA? You know how, when they finally move out, some of the neighbors grab their lawn chair and a beer, and sit out and have a little party as they watch them finish loading up the U-Haul and then drive away? That. I have now seen that.

I’ve been feeling better lately. I may have just jinxed it by writing that, but oh well. I think the secret is a combination of the following areas: Changing what I eat Resting Changing how I take my medications Specifically Returning to the practice of EPED: Eat Pizza Every Day Sitting very still playing Minecraft for hours Forgetting to take the majority of my medications on a...
hellokrissi: rubywhiterabbit: My little brother got into outer space and stuff so my step-mom bought him a place mat with all the planets on it. When I first saw it, I was upset, because it was newer and so Pluto wasn’t labeled. I was about to say something when I noticed something… Pluto is there. The artist remembered Pluto. Guys… The artist drew Pluto crying. I was having a...

And I might answer, just enjoying the side effects of the medication I took twelve hours ago. Because I’m sarcastic like that.
Arizona desert summer pro-tips
If you leave your coffee in the car while you go shopping, do not worry about it getting cold. It will be hotter when you get back than when you left it there. Put chocolate bars in the same grocery bag as frozen goods so they don’t melt in the trunk. Don’t live in the Arizona desert in the summer. Just don’t.
A contrarian view of procrastination →
simplicitybliss: I have a contrarian view of procrastination: in most cases it’s a good thing. It’s your mind’s way of telling you it doesn’t see a smart plan. Either the goal doesn’t make sense or you don’t have a believable way of accomplishing it. Successful, productive people don’t blithely choose a goal and then charge after it. They take time to gather evidence; they study those whose...

I made a scene today at the pool. There was a party. About twenty kids, half a dozen parents watching over, myself included. Everything was reasonably fine up until the near the end. My son got hurt. I went over to see why he was crying. The kids were playing this stupid thing where kids on the edge were trying to pull kids out of the pull, and those in the pool were trying to pull the others...
