What inspires me, you ask? And how do I have time to be a parent and yet also do all this work? Why, I do it in my sleep. Literally. I send myself emails in the middle of the night all the time. The emails are usually just a couple of words in the subject line, with an occasional vague phrase tossed into the body of the email (things like “child bed green” or some such).
I usually do not remember sending myself these cryptic messages, and often I have no idea what they mean, in which case I usually just delete and start the day fresh. I would say I wrote about 30% of Prudent Advice via email communication between my sleeping self and awake self. But last week, as I was on the phone with Jacinda and Colleen for our weekly status gabfest, I received a truly strange email from myself.
The email was sent from me to me around 2 a.m. The body of the message was an unhelpful blank, and the subject simply said “albino animals.” What? I have no idea. So anyway, here are some awesome albino animals.
