We've had such a holiday-ish week. The kids' preschool program, lovely lunch dates, shopping, The Gorilla's production company Christmas dinner. It's been so nice.
Since becoming a parent, some Christmas seasons have been sort of rattling. This year I've had the luxury of being more prepared than usual. Both my kids are in school part of the day, I forced myself not to procrastinate, etc. It has made a huge difference in my life, and if I've learned anything this year - and I have learned a LOT - it's that preparation makes life easier and better. But more on that when we recap the monthly discipline challenges. Because this is a lesson I'm still learning.
This week on the HH facebook page.... But first I must tell you this. Facebook has made it public that in January, they plan to radically cut back on how much activity is shown in personal news feeds by pages or businesses. This means that even if you have "liked" the HH facebook page, you probably won't be seeing many of my updates.
I really like the facebook platform, but I'm not sure where this is leading. What will be the point of posting good content there if no one sees it? Also, how would I find the people interested in reading this blog if facebook were to disappear altogether? I can't count on communicating with anyone via social media, because we're all just visitors there. The most reliable way for me to stay directly in touch with you is via my Secret Posts. I'll always share the important things there first, so if you don't want to miss a thing, sign up here.
For your weekend reading pleasure:
- If you haven't kept up with the saga of the Survivor producer in a Mexican prison for killing his wife, here is a summary of the case. You know, if you're into that kind of thing.
- Also from the Hollywood Reporter: What Happens to All These Women After They Direct Their First Film? Something to think about.
- What happened when I lived according to the Pinterest popular page. Funny, but also a major perspective check after one woman spends a week following all those recipes, beauty & cleaning tips, & style advice.
We have lots planned for this last weekend before the holiday break. I hope you have fun and rest both built into your schedule.
Happy weekend to you!
PS - last week I said that I would do a roundup of the best from the Friday links this year. I wasn't able to wade through all of them, so I hope to have that up before the end of the year. I do love a good "best of" list.
