Weekend Open Thread and Links

Happy (almost) weekend! What do you all have on tap? Today is Joanie’s last day of preschool, and after I pick her up, I’ll take her out for ice cream to celebrate. Tonight we have a sitter coming and Drew and I are joining some friends who invited us to sit in their VIP seats for the Philharmonic concert in Prospect Park. Tomorrow, we have friends coming in from New Jersey to hang for the afternoon, and Sunday is Father’s Day and I hope we have better weather than we did for Mother’s Day so we can be outside. I have to take advantage of Joanie being in school one more day and run some errands and take care of some things on my to-do list before we head out of town in a few days for my friend’s wedding. Hope you all have a great weekend – and a Happy Father’s Day for the, what, two or three dads who read the site! Here are a few links from around the web that might interest you:

    The ‘relationship type’ study is super interesting! I had a bit of an epiphany a while back about the similarities that have run through the men I’ve been most serious about because it wasn’t what it seemed on the outside. In my case, while the personality traits they all had in common do present some challenges, it’s ultimately a value that I admire. I’m okay with having a ‘type’ because of that.

    I was just having the “type” conversation with my sister yesterday. Like there are definite through lines in the guys I dated and the husband I married. Like, I married a rugby player but also dated two other rugby players. One in High School and One in College. I also dated three base players in bands. only base players.
