DISTRACTION. Last night was another one of those nights I got sucked into the Instagram-a-verse and could not get myself out.
This morning, after reading a particularly relevant chapter in 4000 Weeks, I deleted the app from my phone.
I’m over it, you guys. The app may give me something, but it takes away SO MUCH MORE.
I am going to figure out how to post weekly podcast updates from my laptop and I will schedule those. I will get my planner news from my current fave sources (podcasts and very select YouTube) and have a suspicion that will be plenty.
HOLIDAYS / GIFTS.
OMG, Hanukkah is SOON! I am going to start figuring out gifts this weekend. I really (REALLY) want to get things that are largely consumable + non-clutter producing.
Genevieve has repeatedly asked for a “cake decorating set”, and I don’t think she means a play one, which is interesting. Also, her 4th birthday is inconveniently situated ~4 days after Hanukkah ends. Gah! (Though I AM excited to host the first bday party we’ve held in literally years at a local playground!).
Annabel has asked for $$$ (which . . . I’m not that excited about). Or a bearded dragon.
Cameron yesterday mentioned a kids’ Garmin watch (A has one). This might actually be useful, if he doesn’t lose it.
Please share ideas!!
