“And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations.
They’re quite aware of what they’re going through.
― David Bowie, Changes
It’s been quiet around this parts, pumpkins, because work has gotten insane again. All of my routines are messed up right now, my organization and health are completely out of whack and the house is a mess. Jeff is in no better shape as we are in the thick of accounting busy season and the man is working absolutely painful hours at the moment. A+ adulting happening here in the Small Dog residence, let me tell you! However, the sun is out today and I’m determined to repair damages with several loads of laundry, a deep clean of the bathrooms, and a general prep for the coming week.
It’s not all stress and poor self care, though! We’ve actually carved out some fun time over the past two weeks that has been much needed. I loved Black Panther and wanted at least another half hour of Winston Duke’s character cracking jokes and telling Martin Freeman to stop talking. In other news, teenagers will save us from ourselves, and maybe society isn’t falling into wreck and ruin!
Here are your links and tell me how your are spending your weekend. Plus, if you have any self organizational tips that I may benefit from, share them in the comments!
– forced CNN town hall
– got new commitments from Rubio
– pressured POTUS to call for bump stock ban
– led advertisers to leave NRA
– dragged D’Souza, Ingraham, O’Reilly online
– saw Florida aide fired for lies
– raised *millions* for march
It’s been 9 days.

The only cure for misinformation is education.
I love Fashion Weeks across the globe, but this piece from The Cut asks an important question about the (predominantly) women not on the catwalks.
This cow took its life into its own hooves.
The intensity of the conspiracy theorists active in the world today genuinely terrifies me. Some people are actual garbage.
The FT reports that American arms manufacturers bet wrong.
There is a lot of writing about there about the crisis of modern masculinity (some of it really smart, some of it really bad) but this editorial in the wake of the Parkland shooting is still pretty affecting.
Ugh, I need to stop falling in love with brands. They inevitably sink into mess!

Organizational tips?! For the Mistress of Systems?!!!
Pick three things you MUST do to remain married, employed and presentable (to yourself!) The rest can wait, I think. Make some time for a nap (if possible) and stare out at that amazing view of yours. Savor it!
If the weather isn’t impossible, a long walk is restorative.
My morning began with a lightbulb bursting into flame (!) and Jose is far away at work. Not so fun.
As always, you’re advice is spot on!
The weather (alas) IS impossible at the moment.
It is here as well! OMG. So glad to be home with Jose, food, liquor and heat!
