Did you miss me? No? Good? That means you’re busy doing meaningful stuff with your family and friends and staying off the computer.
Congratulations on prioritizing.
We are holidaying minimally. A few gifts, one get-together, no decorations. The kids could decorate if they wanted, I’ve given them a budget. We usually do handmade gifts or gifts of service and time. And real friends and family will not dump us for not giving them stuff.
Have a Happy New Year. Count your blessings. And remind your kids of how lucky they are to have you, each other, and boundless opportunity only limited by their strongest desire to make their fate.
