Happy Friday! Hope you all have had a great week. I’m writing this during a two-hour break I have from a mostly all-day gig at the kids’ school today. It’s Hispanic Heritage month and Jackson and Joanie are in Spanish dual-language classes, so they have performances this week – Jackson’s class sang “Remember Me” (from the movie Coco) in English and Spanish this morning and it was very sweet – and then back-to-back Latin luncheons today that I’m helping to serve to roughly 275 kids (that’s just two grades and not the whole school, which is over 1000 kids!). And then this weekend we’ve got nothing planned, except a night out tomorrow for me and Drew, which I’m looking forward to. I hope to squeeze in a pilates class and a bike ride on my new-to-me bike I bought off Craigslist a few days ago to replace the one I had stolen in August. I’m also currently reading this book, recommended by my therapist, and it’s surprisingly good (but, like, really distressing, too.).
Thank you for your comments on yesterday’s post. I’m still trying to figure out the direction I want to take this site — I would love for it to remain predominantly an advice site, but I need a steady supply of engaging letters to respond to and I don’t have a lot of control over that, unfortunately — and it’s helpful to hear your thoughts. I also enjoy hearing about the changes in your lives over the past decade!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead, and here are a few things from around the web that may interest you:
I’ve been getting into Poshmark lately after re-evaluating my shopping habits and wanting to do better by my budget and the environment. I’ve had great luck with getting things that fit – and for such deals! There are a couple things that didn’t fit so well and I’ve posted them to re-sell – maybe something would be of interest to you. I plan to comb through my closet and add additional items in coming weeks and months, so feel free to follow me if you’re on Poshmark (or consider joining and seeing what all the fuss is about).
Some of these 21 Weirdest Prenup Demands Lawyers Have Ever Seen are reasonable (like 4 and 5 and 19) and some are batshit (all the rest basically). If you could put anything in a prenup clause (without negative consequence), what would it be?
Thank you to those who submitted links for me to include. If you see something around the web you think DW readers would appreciate, please send me a link to firstname.lastname@example.org and, if it’s a fit, I’ll include it in Friday’s round-up. Thanks!
