Hey look, I’m not weighed down

There are a lot of ways I know I’m busy. It’s the way I tend to live my life (although I haven’t quite figured out why–perhaps it’s the Type A thing). My birthday card from my grandparents was even titled “Ode to a Busy Person.”

And at present, the most glaring example of my busy-ness is the long list of unplayed podcasts in my iTunes. Silly, isn’t it? But I’ve barely listened to a one of them this month.

I queud up the most recent episode of The Splendid Table on the drive home Friday night, and was quickly reminded of how much I love that show and public radio in general. Here’s hoping I can slow it down for the rest of the summer–or at the very least, fit podcasts into my drive time.
