Grown-Up Saturday Morning Cartoons: This Week’s Article Roundup

Great moments in brain fail: last night as I was falling asleep, I thought of a great way to start today’s post — but now I cannot for the life of me remember what it was. I mean, I remember that it was truly awesome and that I was all excited about it, but that’s it. My brain has purged any related memories from its records. Argh.

Oh well: the silver lining here is that the lack of an intro means that we can dive right into this week’s article round-up. 🙂 Enjoy, and have an awesome Saturday!

      Right?! I saw that and just about melted into a puddle of goo. Baby + puppies! It doesn’t get any better than that!

    Girl, i HATE when you have a brain fart. That sort of thing used to happen to be all the time, thankfully I’ve started keeping a notebook next to my bed for situations like that! =)

      Oh, what a good idea! I’m going to have to follow suit and stash a notebook by my bed — hopefully it’ll remedy the whole brain fart situation. 🙂

    I can totally relate to the “I had a great idea for my blog post, but now it’s gone gone GONE” situation. It happens to me all the time, too, however I’ve started jotting things down in my phone “notepad,” the second something pops into my head, which has been a tremendous help.

    Your article roundup is always my favorite in the blogosphere. I’m interested in learning more about before-bed exercise (not a good idea for me), but I’m most excited to read about how diaper duty could stimulate the economy! Who knew?!

    Hope you had a wonderful weekend, and happy Monday! ❤

      Oh, yay! I’m so glad to know you like the article round-up! I try to find interesting ones, so it makes me really happy to know that other people find the same articles as fascinating as I do. 🙂 Have a fantastic Monday!
