Just want to share some of my favorite quotes I've written down so far this month: 🔷 "Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced." - James Baldwin 🔷 "Mistakes are a fact of life. It is the response to the error that counts." -Nikki Giovanni… Continue reading Quotes of the month so far
I mentioned probably way back in July that I had started reading Tim Ferriss' book Tribe of Mentors. Well, long story short, I'm still reading it. I had to renew it multiple times and re-check it out, but I'm finally getting close to the end. It is a 569 page book. I need to return… Continue reading Quote dump!
Information and overconfidence in decision making… plus other misc.
Some misc. things today..... 1- I read a short story about decision making yesterday: A psychologist gathered up 8 professional horse handicappers and told them he wanted to see how well they could predict the winners of horse races. Their test was to predict 40 horse races in four rounds. In round 1: Each gambler… Continue reading Information and overconfidence in decision making… plus other misc.
Every morning in my little "highlight journal", I jot down a positive quote. (In between my daily summary paragraph (top part) and my bullet journal style recap (bottom half) which tracks my workouts, meals, accomplishments, gratitude, etc.) I thought I'd share a few I've written down lately: "Don't base your decisions on the advice of… Continue reading Positive quotes
Tired, the week, etc.
Feeling kind of tired/ blah this morning. I stayed up until 11 pm working on volunteer related preparations for yet another home hosted swim meet coming up the weekend of February 18-20. It's a big one, too- Regionals. Typically Regionals are not hosted by our team (we always just attend at a different pool) but… Continue reading Tired, the week, etc.
Something I'm loving eating this week: Ivan's pico de gallo! He made nachos on Sunday night, and he always makes a big bowl of pico de gallo to top the nachos with. We had leftovers, so I have repurposed the pico de gallo multiple times now. 1st: As a salad topper! Chicken, apple, black pepper,… Continue reading Whatever Wednesday

A better Tuesday
I'm happy to report that Tuesday, September 14, was exponentially better than Tuesday, September 7. 🙂 It was still our "busiest" day of the week....Ethan had piano right after school AND soccer later. Asher had cross country right after school AND swim later. I have to drive to/ from piano, and do CC pick up.… Continue reading A better Tuesday
3 Things Thursday
1. Something I'm happy about/ proud of: Asher decided to give open water swimming another try! He did a 1.2 mile lake swim race last summer, which he was really nervous about it but did it. This season, his swim team has some lake practices and a couple open water events on the calendar, but… Continue reading 3 Things Thursday
I am not throwing away my shot
Happy Sunday! I ended up having a pretty great Saturday, after some plans shifted and my day unexpectedly opened up. The morning was fairly lazy but included checking off a couple more months worth of photo organization. Still chugging along on this photo project. Ethan and I cleaned out his closet. It badly needed it… Continue reading I am not throwing away my shot
