This week on Everything is Fine

10

As we enter close to year three of the pandemic, Jenn and I are both feeling a little brain-fogged—but entertainingly so! We’re talking about The Artist’s Way, productivity hacks, and how to schedule a balanced life. Plus: West Elm Caleb, the hell of dating apps, men who date (much) younger women, and the unbearable lightness of liking And Just Like That… Do tune in on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts.

    I agree with Jenn’s comments on the podcast about And Just Like That. I am enjoying it! So it’s not perfect, but don’t we accept that when we are a Certain Age? 🙂

      I’m not loving And Just Like that, but it has grown on me enough that I will miss it. I feel like it is starting to hit its stride. Sigh.

    Oh no, Kim. I have secretly thought that my wood-soled shoes are responsible for my occasional knee problems for a while now. I don’t even want to admit it to myself, because now I have quite a few pairs. I find the clog boots and sandals to be worse than the mules, I’m guessing because there’s zero foot movement in them. Ugh. Why does everything good always have to have a complication?

    Just listened to the podcast (whilst exercising). So many good things in this one. The whole Julia Cameron section––bought a used copy of her book (because I could only afford a used copy) in the 80’s and was immediately told by my then boyfriend that I didn’t need it because I wasn’t really “an artist.” I believed him because he was an artist and gave the copy to a friend––so many, many ways we let ourselves be taken down. On a more positive note… I love Paul, Kim, for saying he was fat when you revealed your age––the perfect blend of being supportive of you and revealing his own insecurity. He’s a keeper. And yes, you are both ADD (I speak from experience, not as a professional!)…my daughter takes a medication for her ADD which helps her focus––does nothing to help her remember where she left her keys/jacket/wallet/shoes etc, but she can and does focus on her work with the help of those meds.

      I punched the air with my fist when Kim said that Paul said “Can we just date each other until we figure out where this thing is going?” Also, Kim, I had no idea, but I guess based on what you’ve said about your brothers and nephews etc, I assumed you had great parents. Could you consider doing a podcast on what it’s like being the daughter of a horrendous father? I think there might be a very large audience for it….

    This episode was so, so good — it cracked me up multiple times, to the point of cackling! You two should definitely consider creating a guy-review/warning app … (-: Btw, how amazing do your BF and husband sound?? Deeply impressed, and frankly envious! I mean, every terrific woman deserves an excellent partner, if she wants one – but decent straight guys, of any age, seem to be in direly short supply … Anyway, thank you for the relatable content, and the laughs!

    That West Elm Kaleb story kind of gave me chills because in my 20s, I was a total ghoster and would have been mortified if my behavior went viral. I honestly thought that was normal 20s dating behavior at the time. The worst was when I told a guy I’d been seeing for a few months to come over, which for him literally meant taking a ferry AND a bus. While he was on his way, I decided I really wasn’t interested in him anymore and when he showed up, I hid in my apartment not answering the door, then watched him calling me from a pay phone in the parking lot of my building until he gave up and left. Of course karma took care of itself, as he was the only ex-boyfriend I’d run into on the street over and over again for the next several years, and he would bring this incident up every single time. But anyway, I had plenty of girlfriends who were also ghosters, so I think this is one of those things where the internet outrage over perceived typical “male” bad behavior is just wrong.

      Girl, same! The guy drove all the way to my place from East Jesus. I was still cute, way too snobbity for my own good and there were too many fish in the sea. He must have knocked for 20 minutes and called me a few times later. Luckily, I never ran into him again. But, yes, women ghost also.
