Karen over at Write from Karen, was the author of #7 Fodder which was a really good one. Be sure and visit Karen and send her some sunshine while you are there.
Which is more important, intelligence or common sense?
Having this question is kind of a coincidence, as it is very similar to one of the questions on the Myers Briggs psychometric test I completed today ready for a work event. Hmm - intelligence or common sense? In an ideal world they are both equally important, but if I had to choose (and I did today!) I would say common sense.
And this week’s topic is brought you to you by Melonie, over at The Joy of Being Melonie.
How does one handle work, home and family (or a combination thereof) without having a nervous breakdown?
Hmm - this is not a challenge for me as I am unable to have children, so no 'family' as such. Just MB (who is reasonably able to look after himself - and me, if necessary!) and two cats who are very low maintenance. I do most of my chores over the weekend, so I am ready for Monday with no outstanding laundry and so on. Years gone by, I looked after families, children, job etc etc. To be honest, I don't know how I did it. But I guess it's like most things; needs must. You try to organise, employ shortcuts, delegate, learn to exist without sleep.....
