They say that ambition is an unattractive trait in a woman. Maybe. But you know what’s really unattractive? Waiting around for something to happen, staring out a window thinking the life you should be living is out there somewhere but not being willing to open the door and go get it, even if someone tells you you can’t. // Miriam Maisel

Are you traveling this summer?  Then you are made of stronger stuff than I am.  My Instagram is filled with enough photos of Italy, Spain and Charleston to make me think most of the influencers have relocated permanently.  But I will be saving my money and my sanity by staying closet to home.

    Oh damn, that “doing nothing at work” article is my life. I average 8 hours of work a week and exceed my targets.

    When my kids were in diapers, I learned to make an airplane specific diaper change kits (I did 2 kits/4 hour flight). In a gallon zip bag you put: a diaper and a quart size zip bag that has a complete change of clothes for the baby. When you need to change a diaper, you grab your wipes and one of the bags and you have everything you need without having to lug your diaper bag into the lavatory. Any soiled clothes can then go into the gallon bag so they stay contained. My kids are out of diapers now, but I still pack their emergency outfits like this in case they spill something and I need to contain soda-filled clothes.
