To keep me honest about reading more, I thought it might be fun to share some articles and tidbits that I come across once a week or so that really peak my interest.
Maybe someday, when my kids read all these blog entries I write, they'll appreciate knowing what piques my interests.
1. I found this article both comforting and interesting. Comforting because we chose not to send Audrey to preschool this year. And
2. This is a gem...I am sort-of a grammar nerd. Truly. And I love to re-aloud. But sadly, yes, I actually was mispronouncing most of these words incorrectly.
3. This article caught my interest because of my own inner-conflict with wasting time. In fact, I held off joining the FB world for so long because I knew that it would suck precious moments of my free time away from me. I fooled myself into believing that just because I never wrapped myself up into 'looking at the pages of old high-school classmates' or 'stalking potential new friends' that it was just a way to be connected.
However, I have found myself in recent months checking my 'news-feed' several times a day.
I. Have. No. Idea.
The updates in my newsfeed are not even that interesting.
So, while I am not going to the extreme of breaking up with FB, I have deleted the app on my phone and now will only check once a day or so on my computer.
Note: If you only read ONE of the above articles, choose the grammar one. Just for kicks, to give yourself a little quiz about the words and how you pronounce them.
Bonus: It is the shortest article.
