Gah! Sick! Pregnant! Toddler! Deadlines! Did I already say "Gah!"?
It's going to be a list-y week. (It would seem that, for me, the week starts on Wednesday.) So here's the first instalment.
Like many people who live, work, and love on the internet, Rusty and I have found our attention spans shrivelling to the point where an article that requires scrolling is considered way too wordy to deserve our precious clicking time. So, in an effort to keep our aging brains from further atrophy, we've recommitting to print magazines, which were once the great love of our pre-internet life. Here are the ones we've subscribed to so far:
I'd explain why we chose each publication, but that would defeat the entire purpose of the brief list post. I will say that we've been getting them for a couple of months now, and so far we've actually been reading them, pretty much cover to cover. This could be because we keep them in the bathroom, which is one of the favourite retreats of savvy parents of small children. Because while you can't say to your partner, "Hey, watch the kid while I go fuck off with a magazine for half an hour," you can say, "Hey, keep an eye on the boy while I use the facilities, okay?" And then what's he going to do? Dispute it? Time you?
And in conclusion, I win!
