Why We “Sabotage” Our Precious Little Alone Time as Mothers by Beth Berry from Revolution From Home

I Dwell in Possibility by Patricia Zaballos – including this quote that made me cry:

“I’m 55. I kind of gave up some of the best professional years of my life (to homeschool.) I could have been doing something else but I did this. So the question I’m exploring in this memoir isn’t was it worth it? because I know it was worth it. My question is, what did it do? For the kids? For me?

I’ve waited a very long time to have this part of my professional life happen. I think that’s going to be part of my story: what happens when some things in life happen late for you?”

I’m sure I was talking with my hands when I said this. Because I do that.

And Megan said, “Let me be clear. The best professional years of your life are right fucking now. Until the day you die.”

58 Things to Do With the Rest of Lockdown that Aren’t Get Hot from Vice (this is US centric but I think there is some good stuff here.)

And while we’re on the subject I feel that I need to remind you that Burnout by Emily and Amelia Nagoski is a fantastic book about women (and non-binary people) and stress. The chapter on ‘The New Hotness’ is worth reading if the chatter about ‘getting hot ‘post pandemic’ is getting you down.

Finally, a piece of good news for Trans people in the UK via The Good Law Project – Our parental consent case against the Tavistock has succeeded.
