Spaghetti Brain? | PPE Prices Continue to Fall | CP-PWR-CUBE-4 | Alignment & Adaptability | News to Start Your Day
Happy Monday! (A holiday for some, a normal day for others.)
Hey there, friends. I hope you all had a good weekend. It was rainy and wet here due in part to Hurricane Delta making her way through. I have been thinking of those impacted by her direct hit since Friday. My heart just breaks thinking of them being hit by Hurricane Laura just a few weeks ago and now again with Delta. If you are in that area and there is something we can do to help, please let us know.
Have you ever heard of men’s brains being compared to waffles while women’s are compared to spaghetti? I was thinking about that today, feeling like a spaghetti brain myself, and I Googled its origins. Apparently, it was a book (that I’ve never read) written in 2001 by Bill and Pam Farrell. It looks like it was endorsed by Gary Chapman, author of The Five Love Languages. A reader mentioned that book in response to my personality test post on Friday. It is a good one! Craig and I attended a Gary Chapman marriage conference pretty early on in our marriage. He was funny and engaging. We still use some of the content from the conference with each other, so he obviously made an impression on us.
Anyway, back to spaghetti and waffles. I’m not sure if that characterization holds true for the majority of men and women, but it certainly does for us. Craig has the ability to focus on one thing at a time physically, mentally and emotionally much easier than I do. Everything is connected for me. Looking for a sock? Oh, look that toy needs to be picked up and I should probably take out some meat for dinner. Did I move the laundry over? I should do that and I cannot forget to send that email, oh and I also need to take out that puzzle for school tomorrow. Now, what was I looking for again?
I was having a particularly “noodly” day today as I was processing through the weekend, thinking about what’s coming up for the week and also what I wanted to share with you all today. About the time I thought I knew what I was going to write about, a friend shared a meme that induced a moment of panic. I don’t want to frighten you, friends, but I do have a little PSA: there are only 10 more Fridays until Christmas. Eek! How can it be?
6 Fridays until Thanksgiving
