♥️ We did hit up the zoo yesterday and ended up getting a membership (it was $80 for tickets or $126 for a yearly family membership — so the deal was compelling). I’m glad we did because it took away the pressure of seeing everything. Also — we are less likely to want to go to the indoor places we used to frequent. The kids had fun except for a ~30 minute tantrum G had. The pic above was taken immediately after said tantrum ended. You would never know, right?
♥️ I totally failed on my Operation 100 goals yesterday — a whopping 198 minutes were spent on my phone, most of which was Insta scrolling. To be completely transparent, I’ve had a few fail days over the course of the last ~60 days. I’d still consider the project an overwhelming success (and it has proved to me that I CAN minimize my phone use, at least most of the time). I am already annoyed at the time I spent scrolling instead of reading This Tender Land (love it so far). Luckily . . . today is another day.
♥️ I have been hit hard by an organizing bug and I cleaned out my computer (deleted so many old files). My hard drive is still taken up primarily by photos/videos though at some point these are going to go too — we have backups on google photos and I printed yearly photobooks, so I don’t feel compelled to keep originals forever. I also sorted through some toys. We will see what is next . . .
♥️ Aside from organizing I’m feeling a little bit blocked when it comes to 2021 goals. I’m sure it’s pandemic/uncertainty related. Laura and I are recording some fun episodes next week (Best of 2020, plus our annual Goals Episode) so I really want to delve into what I’d like 2021 to look like, but it’s not coming as naturally as it usually does.
♥️ Today = divide and conquer. I think Josh is going to take C skateboarding and to the beer store while I take A&G to the Gardens to meet up with friends yet again.
