Only eleven days until V day! Have you decided who you are voting for? Have you ever been more thankful to the person that invented the DVR? I’m SO glad I do not live in a swing state. We are not inundated with political advertisements like some areas are. Thankfully I’ve been able to either fast forward over or mute most of them.
Even if you have made your decisions I would like to suggest that you fact check, fact check, fact check… and then fact check again. Don’t trust anything you see on the news or (God forbid) hear in a political ad. I’ve heard some people say that the fact checking agencies (my favorite is Poltifact.com) are partisan. Not true. Just because they are calling out one party or candidate as a liar more than this other doesn’t mean they are partisan. It just means that party or candidate is lying more.
A Photo Just Because:
This is my cutie patootie nephew. You may remember his as Baby A. Now he is a full blown toddler running around trying to keep up with the big kids.
Pin of the Week:
I can’t wait to try this pumpkin truffles recipe from Kelly.
Stuff I Did This Week:
Sunday I was completely out of it. I’ve been taking my ADD meds only during the week, but on Sunday I crash. As in, I sit on the couch all day and only think about going to bed. Luckily, I had a doctor appointment this week and now I’m trying three days on and one day off. Fingers crossed. Monday I was so busy at work and catching up from Sunday that I didn’t write anything. Bad Jennifer. Bad. Tuesday I shared the final installment in the series about my relationship with my Dad. I want to thank everyone for being so supportive and encouraging while I wrote out my memories. It has definitely helped with the healing process. Wednesday I shared a tutorial for making cute treats for your kids. Thursday I gave you some tips for buying a new car.
Some Great Stuff I Read:
Most of my reading lately has been political in nature, and I’m sure no one really wants to know more about that, but I did read this really great article about economics (I’m a nerd). Some might think it is political, but I like it because of the economy discussion, Taking Stockman: How Nixon, Reagan, Bush, and their GOP Demolished the Economy.
Something not political? I loved this post by Maggie, Honey, That’s Not a Bird. A good reminder about where our hope should really be placed.
