Random Thought Thursday.

Things that should be known about me:

If you’re interested, read on.
If not, here’s an awesome (children’s) book you could read instead.
In fact, read it either way. Seriously. You’ll be so glad you did.
And it won’t take you long at all.

I talk too much.
In an attempt to express gladness or excitement, I ALL too often overuse exclamation points! & smiley faces. 🙂
I love my typewriter.
Unfortunately, I hardly ever use it.
I like to make lists.
I tend to be an extremist.
I love that Jesus calls me to balance.
I can’t wait to meet our little girl.
I love the Beatles.
I can’t wait to play Here Comes the Sun for our little girl on vinyl & dance with her.
I want to write a children’s book.
Saying that out loud (okay, so typing it) should do one of two things:
…. make me do it     OR solidify that I might not. Ever.
I’m a procrastinator.
(Who likes to get way ahead on some things.)
I spend too much time on my computer.
In my mind, Joy is feminine.
(Not as a name, but as a characteristic of God, & a state of being).
I LOVE listening to people’s stories.
I came across a name today that I love for our little girl.
I wrote about it, in a letter to her, on my typewriter.

Battle of the Tabs

I sat down here on the couch after John left for work, macbook in lap, ready to tackle the tabs.

I’ve got more than 37 tabs open in 3 windows in 2 browsers.

My “main” window has 23 tabs open related to babies, primarily. Research that I’m doing that leads me to click a link to open in a new tab, & I either leave it to read later, read it then & need to remember to bookmark & categorize it… Or, well, I close it once it’s been read.

One open tab was the blog. I was reminded of my goal to post daily. So, here I am.
Here I am, rambling about my tabs, trying to just get myself to say:

I don’t know what to write about.

It’s true.
I’m still journeying through figuring out all these crazy health food things, and I’ve been making some really interesting foods.
But you guys know that, and I don’t have too much new on that front to update you on.

I ordered chemical/toxin free laundry detergent recommended by a friend, it arrived today.
I also ordered a new book/cookbook: Nourishing Traditions, which arrived today.
Thanks, Amazon.

Ben & Jerry’s is BOGO at Publix this week. Mmmm.
I wonder if it’s good enough that they don’t make their ice cream with any GMO milk?
At this stage in my transition, I’m going to have to say YES!

I’ve got all these “project” tabs open: tabs of research for a client website we’re working on.
But when I have so many tabs open, I can’t focus. So, I’ve got to close some tabs.

Is this “tabs” battle a battle for anyone else or am I fighting this solo?
I feel like I’ve been brainwashed into being so distracted all the time that I never get anything done.
Maybe this is American culture. Or the way of the interwebs. Or a combination of the two.
Or the way that’s been led to by the industrial revolution.
Or maybe it’s just my crazy distracted self getting lost in a sea of possibilities.

So many links, so little time.
