Pinning My Hopes

I have resisted taking the plunge into Pinterest. Until now.


It started innocently enough, with a well-intentioned search for the “best gluten-free recipes” and “help for autism”. Then I felt the urge to find “crafts using Guatemalan burlap coffee bags”, “perfect poses for family pictures”, and “letters cut from books”. Then I desperately need to find “rustic barn wood frames”, “quotes about dogs”, and “how to decorate with antlers”. And then I couldn’t stand another minute without seeing “beautiful flour containers”, “Amy Grant songs”, and “making words using rope”.


Realizing that I could find photos and tutorials for just about darn anything, I’m now going into the REALLY important issues that may impact my life. To make money, I’ll search for “selling art made from dog hair tumbleweeds”. To save money: “fitting into your old clothes by layering Spanx”. To stay healthy: “replacing calorie-laden foods with air without getting hungry”. To avoid last-minute stress: “how to remember that dinner happens every day at 6 pm” and “Christmas comes every year on December 25”. To feel productive: “how your house can clean itself while you write a blog”.


And finally, to save my marriage: “how to delete evidence that you spent two hours on Pinterest today” – just in case he doesn’t appreciate my new beautiful flour containers.
