"You know there's a saying, on the other side of conflict is intimacy." I tried not to laugh (or cry) when my counselor told me this. There are few things in life I dread more than conflict. (A root canal might be a close second. But it's really close.)
But just as strong as my dread, there is a desire for something else. Pulling gently but firmly in the opposite direction. My desire for a close connection with the people I care about. For intimacy.
It's What We Learned Friday!! This week, Ansen and I learned about caffeine, classic kid arguments, and... wait for it... llamas! (It was definitely an interesting week.)
This week on the KLRC Drive-Home, Kara talked about how a friend told her these words: "I just feel so behind."
Many of us have probably uttered that phrase regarding some aspect of our lives. It could be related to relationships, work, parenting, or something else entirely! But if everyone feels like they're "behind," does that mean we aren't really behind? Who are we comparing ourselves to, anyway?
It's another Friday, which means it's time again to reflect on what we learned on the Drive-Home this week!
Kara read a blog post from Nikki Thompson, who shared some words from her husband that we found encouraging.
This week on the Drive Home, we successfully solved the mysterious case of the sticky mouse (computer, not animal) in the studio.
We also talked about how sometimes we talk about being busy like it's a badge of honor. Spoiler alert, it's not.
It's another "What We Learned" Friday here on the Drive-Home!
This week on the show, Kara had "Beauty and the Beast" fever. The animated classic was one of Kara's favorite childhood movies, so she went to go see the new adaptation last weekend. We had some fun chatting about how Kara got "A Tale as Old as Time" stuck in my head (thanks a lot for that, by the way), and how she had to explain to her friend that she has no problem seeing a good movie multiple times.
There's been a bit of controversy that started during last weekend's Super Bowl halftime show featuring Lady Gaga. Many people on social media sites began deriding the performer for her "flabby" stomach.
It's another "What We Learned Friday" on the Drive-Home! There were several things Kara and I discovered this week, but none was more important to me than learning that "The Last Jedi" will be the title of Star Wars Episode XIII.
It's "What We Learned Friday" here at the Drive-Home, an aptly-named tradition wherein we review all the things we've learned on the show this week!
You'd think that if you took two good things and combined them, you'd end up with an even better thing. It's a good theory, but it doesn't always work out that way. Case in point: KFC has apparently released a new sunscreen to keep you from getting fried, but there's a catch. It smells like fried chicken. Sunscreen is good. Fried chicken is good. But fried chicken sunscreen? Here's our thoughts on the subject.
It's that time of year. Greeting cards are flying off the shelves. (Or at least they should be.) This is your official reminder to buy your mom a Mother's day card if you haven't.
In addition to Mother's day, graduation is just around the corner for many seniors!...
