I have to steer clear of those people who are constantly "so busy, omg"...they stress me out. Sometimes I'm that person and I stress me out! Here's a great article in the NY Times about being busy - seriously worth a read. Unless you are too busy of course. 
Have a great w/e!

I seriously love this link list - that brownstone is gorgeous, and I love the idea of re-using wine bottles in so many creative ways! :)

Katherine Alice said...

I love the brownstone!I totally agree with you - people who are always going on about how busy they are get on my nerves. They always seem to think that their lives are so much more important than everyone else's . . . yeah, yeah! They just wear me out!

Hollie said...

This made me laugh out loud. I think people who brag about being busy are probably lying. And silly too. Because if you're really that busy, why stop to talk about it?

I am the least busy person I know and I love it. At first I felt really guilty, but then I was like, "Freak. I don't care. I'm gonna go on Pinterest for as long as I want and have everyone who follows me judge me."

You know what? I am less busy than I've been in years, and it's a remarkable feeling. This spring, for instance, I was teaching high school, working a part time job at Voice of Witness (where I now work full time), teaching one night a week at the prison, and fulfilling various social/friend/boyfriend duties. It was crazy, and frankly, I was crazy! But now I'm working for Voice of Witness, and I work from HOME at least 3 days a week, and I still teach at the prison, but still--life is totally manageable! And I love it.

I also love the idea of that pinterest dinner. YUM! I have some sweet potatoes, so may have to try that tonight. I'm close to tears, though, cause we're nearing the end of avocado season here. :( :( :(

Olga said...

Being busy, it's quite typical for me. A very interesting article, thank you.

Manda said...

That brownstone is a dream. Ever since watching "You've Got Mail"- I've wanted my own sweet space.

Thanks for sharing!
Happy Weekend Mama & Bebe. :) (...and Papa I s'pose!)

I really enjoyed that article, thanks for sharing! I often feel too busy too and I'm trying to make more time for the important things in life. I feel like I never have enough time to blog, read, write, or do chores, but life shouldn't be spent just rushing through it, we need to take time to enjoy. :)
