Two great discoveries of the day: One, the FlyLady chat where, I kid you not, we cheered each other on all day. Every time I sat down and could have gotten distracted by the computer, I pulled up that tab and within a minute or two I was sent off to do another "mission."
My second great discovery was that I can create a smart playlist on iTunes that plays unheard podcasts. This will be much-used. I re-subscribed to a bunch of NPR stations. I un-subscribed to all the teacher stations. I stayed subscribed to FlyLady. Groupie, I know.
And the failed TV-free home experiment from ages back is a bit back up and running. We now have "weekly goals" in the house (I'm super excited about this). Now when Shabbos comes along, we can see how we did on one specific thing over the last week. One week is just long enough to see what life is like with your goal being implemented, and short enough to stick with it. Well, we agreed to do a shared goal: no TV (well, Hulu) or movies. Man, this one is HARD. But we're almost to Shabbos and I have to admit, I got a LOT more done, did much more reading than I usually do (which still isn't enough but I only have so much down time), and we got to bed much earlier than we otherwise would have. So TV free is awesome. But I am looking forward to catching up on the Shonda Rhimes trifecta.
