I live where it’s hot almost all year round. As a result, I am constantly chasing my kids around with their water bottles. It’s easy to forget about myself though. One of the tools I use to keep myself on track is the fabulous app Waterlogged (Android or iTunes). It’s super easy to set up and if you’re keen, the app can remind you throughout the day to drink more or log the liquid you’ve consumed. I aim for 75 ounces (2.2 L) per day just for my normal activity, but on days that we’re outside a good bit or days that I exercise, I shoot for more. While this “Tech Tuesday” app is not revolutionary, it may be helpful to you too.
- The new blog postings are a way to scratch a creative itch without having to commit to anything stressful or spend hours (that I don’t have at the moment) working on professional portfolio items. Who knows how long this will last, but for now (two day in, ha ha) it’s working well enough.
- Tomorrow marks two weeks since the #Kid started running a fever and the entire house went down a head cold/virus rabbit hole. My version of it morphed into a sinus infection (surprise, surprise) and I started antibiotics yesterday. I’m so ready to be well and to resume #30daysofKBs, although my 30 days are not at all sequential.
- Compound living is way better than we anticipated it being. We’ve made some great friends and love that over the course of five minutes last night, I got to chat with two girlfriends while our children ran around at the playground (which is literally around the corner from my house) and my husband and another husband could visit as well. That said, some nights, I’m the only mum on the playground with my kids as all the other kids are there with nannies/helpers. #DohaProblems
Here’s a new (hopefully, regularly recurring) series on the blog wherein I highlight tech that makes my SAHM life easier.
