“The essence of sports is that while you’re doing it, nothing else matters, but after you stop, there is a place, generally not very important, where you would put it.” -Roger Bannister

    Thank you so much for posting the (in)courage link. That was exactly what I needed to read this week.

  2. I’m a first time poster here and a dude, hope that OK on a simplemom site. I’ve been reading your site for a while and thank you for your links. I’m a stay at home Dad because I broke my left arm 2 years ago and have had 3 surgeries on it and am still waiting for it to heal. ANYWAY, McDonald’s and Tyson are 2 companies I can’t stand, so I thank you for sharing the link you put up about their use of pink slime. Funny how that comes on the heels of their new beef ads that are total garbage. Thanks again.

    • I love it when male readers “come out”! If it makes you feel better, according to statistics, 29% of the readers here are male… So you’re not alone. 😉

      And yes… McDonald’s is gross.

      • Oh good, well then I don’t feel so bad. Along those same lines, my blog where I put all my recipes step by step is named The Resident Dude, because on another blog I’m literally the only guy and they refer to me there as: The Resident Dude when I post. So my blog is: http://theresidentdude.blogspot.com 🙂 Love your blog. Thanks for all the cool stuff you have here.

  3. Loved reading the article from (in)courage. I find myself struggling to connect with friends when juggling mommyhood. But I’ve also made the greatest friends since I became a mom. It does take time to get past the surface talk. We move a lot, so I find I have to go through this cycle of seeking comfort friends often.
