Some weeks are great for scraping things down to the bare bones of life to see what’s there. It turns out we don’t need much sleep. We don’t need to go grocery shopping. In fact, we don’t need to go anywhere or do anything. Because some weeks you just can’t handle anything extra or anything fun. Some weeks you really are just getting by.
And, it turns out, we can get by without groceries, or fresh air, or enjoyment of any kind.
What we cannot get by without, is the iPad.
Although, now that I think about it, maybe if we didn’t have the iPad, we would have been forced to go outside for some fresh air. Hmmm.

Over at Babble.com I’m:
Trying to overcome negative thought patterns
Encouraging people to find motivation to lose weight (hint: pay for not doing it)
Finding simple foods to boost immunity
Hoping parents remember to be careful about giving their kids antibiotics
And spilling about why I think running is the most efficient use of the first hour of my day.
