There is, still, something I like about writing by hand that I miss when I’m typing on a keyboard. There is a smoothness to the pen and paper and I like having good penmanship. There is no penmanship at all with a keyboard.
Moderation in all things, is still great advice, if you can stick to it. We are spoiled for choice.

In no time at all my computer desktop, even though I have a big screen, gets cluttered and disorganized with files, shortcuts, and things I have pinned. It bothers me.

I feel obligated to the stuff and myself. I’m letting myself down if I don’t do everything and do it right.… Read the rest
It starts out small. You don’t suspect at all. One day you just have a bit more stuff than space, more stuff than time or energy. So you make a pile of it.

My sister-in-law, Miss Karol, sent me the link to write for SheKnows. I think they are looking for the domestic Goddess, Mother blogger types. But, I sent in a note anyway. I’m working on the ‘what can it hurt’ theory.
