Update: Many listeners had their own great names for a "Power Down Weekend." My favorite is a "Templeton Day," after the pleasure-loving rat in the brilliant children's book, Charlotte's Web.
Mother's Day in the U.S. is May 13. If you're looking for a gift for a mother in your life, or you need a suggestion for a gift to receive, may I consider...one of my books? The Happiness Project, Happier at Home, the One-Sentence Journal for Mothers, and the coloring book strike me as especially appropriate for Mother's Day.
Try This at Home: Be a tourist in your own home. (The photo shows the tubs on Elizabeth's new garage shelves.)
Happiness Hack: Create an "empty shelf" in your smart phone.
Elizabeth's Gold Star: She gives a gold star to the other second-grade mothers who encouraged her to try hard to attend the class outing to Las Vegas -- and to herself for going.
