Hey all! I thought it would be fun to play Holiday Family Feud this holiday to add something fun to our get together. Would you be willing to fill out the survey so I can collect true answers??
Just click this link and answer away! Let me know in the comments if you want me to share the results with you.
PS I got the idea from Journey with the Johnsons but as far as I can see she isn’t doing one for 2014 so I figured I’d take the reins!
I love Jerry Seinfeld’s ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ and was so excited when I went to the site today and saw that Season 5 has started! This show makes me happy and brightens my day. I highly recommend it when you just need a smile.
I love every episode but here are a few of my favorite favorites:
- Louis CK tells the greatest story about his boat
- Sarah Jessica Parker in a car Jerry hates and they bicker about the tip
- I just love Jon Stewart, I can’t wait to see what he does when his contract is up
- Oh Sarah Silverman
Writing this blog post just makes me want to go watch them all again. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
One thing I’ve been working on for years now is being okay with being mediocre. What does that mean? It means that someone else is always going to be better than me. It means that it’s okay not to be the best. It’s okay, even important, to do something that I like, just because I like it, even though I’m not the best and never will be.
Take this blog. I don’t think I’m the world’s best writer. Sometimes I start a post to find out that I really have no idea what point I am trying to make. But I enjoy writing and thinking about topics and coming up with ideas and making something I can complete and look at and think, hey, I put something new out into the world, even if it’s not that great.
Maybe, just maybe, if I keep working on it and keep writing and keep enjoying this, it will eventually turn into something that actually has some kind of collective substance. Or maybe it won’t but I will surely learn a lot along the way.
The point is to bring joy into my life. I want to do the things on my bucket list, the things that I have in my head. I want to be silly and serious and learn new things and have new experiences. I want to shape my life rather than letting it shape me.
And one of the things that is helping me do that is this blog. So, there it is, I am going to keep working on this blog and let it bring me joy even if it never turns into anything more than a source of fun for me.
What do you want to try just for the fun of it even though you will never be the best?
Every holiday I like to do footprint art with the kids. It’s fun to see how their foot size changes through time. I don’t always get it done but this year I managed to pull off a Halloween craft!
I did the basic footprint (Charlie’s is huge!) with white paint on black paper and then took them and made them into two different decorations.
I have some work to do on my photography but I thought they came out pretty good!
We also managed to carve a pumpkin last night and toast the pumpkin seeds…yum. We may be a little sick around our house but we’re trying to enjoy the holiday season!
