Peanut butter sandwiches (on wheat bread) with fruit and milk for dinner is better for my kids than take-out.
It's better to have students understand material and fall "behind" on the schedule than to rush in order to keep up.
However, it is worth keeping my house picked up (mostly), because it makes the atmosphere here calmer.
It's okay to call my new routine of drinking chai latte in the afternoon an affection for the drink rather than an obsession with it.
In short: today I noticed that sanity matters.
