What's up moms? Has your summer started yet? I've had such a busy June with no slow down in site. Looks like July might be just as crazy. What ever happened to the "lazy days of summer"?!

Summer is definitely here - and so our the tourists :)  Loving lazy San Diego days and extra time to play outside with our neighbors at night!

Are you happy it's Friday? I am... but there's not much "relief" in sight this weekend. So much going on -- I'm ready for the quiet days of summer! Hope you had a great week!

So a friend of mine shared this article last week and it has really gotten me thinking about how I use email and social media.

Do click over and read the whole thing and let me know what you think.

This is an excerpt I especially enjoyed (and really got me thinking--and STILL has me thinking):

The social media craze seems to, at least in part, be fueled by obsessive email checking. When the email inbox is empty and we feel a corresponding emptiness in our consciousness, we turn to Facebook. When we are low on personal messages from friends we turn to impersonal announcements from friends about what they are doing every five minutes. And when our friends are not stimulating enough, we turn to Twitter, which gives us the artificial thrill of being texted by movie stars, politicians, and popes.

What is at bottom in the frequent email and social media checking? I think that part of it is the daunting task of having to order our life. When the question “what should I be doing right now?” arises, it is much easier to turn to a simple reactionary activity where we can assume a passive role. Why think about what you should actually do, when you can easily check your email and taste a little bit of artificial efficiency and self-importance? Now it might seem like the proper remedy required for this sickness is a serious dose of moral exhortation of the style offered by famous self-helpers: “Be Proactive! Take life by the horns! Believe in yourself!” But no matter how enthusiastically one receives these exhortations at the outset, they rarely succeed in changing anyone’s behavior.

Personally, I like the prospect of being able to frequently assume a disposition of utter passivity throughout the day, and I don’t think it is a bad instinct. What matters is who or what we are passive or responsive towards. The desert fathers spoke of cultivating a fundamental purity of heart whereby one uninterruptedly focuses on God throughout the day. Spiritual authors also speak of a similar concept called the practice of the presence of God. I think that bound up with these practices is a definite passivity towards the inspirations of the Holy Spirit. When a Christian living in God’s grace asks, “What should I be doing right now?” he should not be surprised to sometimes receive a rather direct answer in the form of an inspiration of the Holy Spirit. This may take the form of a subtle tug on the heart to do this or that, to speak to this friend, to read this book, or to go for a walk etc. What we need are not more frequent email checks, but a periodic and habitual openness to an interior movement from God.

My husband has been VERY ill the last few days and is on day 4 of being home. Since I work from home, it's meant that I'm crashing at my MIL's and today, maybe at a friend's house, so that I can get my work done.

Yes, I know, the most important work I do is as wife and mom. But my 2yo boy won't leave him alone if we're in the same house.

Any tips or advice? Or prayers?

(We think maybe it's viral pneumonia. It might be the flu. Poor guy is very sick.)

Nope, it's not a man cold, +Jennifer Minson, but I so wish it was. 5th day he's home. And I'm STAYING PUT today...the laundry needs done and I'm just SICK of not being home. (Dude, 20 years ago you would NOT have heard me saying that, lol!)

+Sara Boyle, he did get the z-pac scrip filled, but it's sorta not really helping. Ah, well, he gets to cuddle with 2yo for a while while they watch "dodo" (aka dora) ( #dontjudgeme   #notthatyouwould )

I think sleep is what he (husband) needs. And I'm all for sending him back to the bedroom if things get crazy later. :)

On my way to becoming the next Oprah??? Had my Splendid Life Show premiere today with my guest Dr. Mort Orman, who is a physician, author and speaker.  We had to do the recording twice because I messed up on not pressing the recording button.  Glad he was such a sport about it.
Doing this weekly show will definitely upgrade my tech skills!
