So I just spent six days in Buffalo visiting my mom and complaining about the cold, and it’s followed me back to Brooklyn. I had to move the car twice this morning and oh my, it’s freezing. The Ass is home with me for the rest of the week so we were going to go out and have lunch today. I assumed we would be driving, he assumed we would be walking. That’s because he hasn’t stepped outside yet. No way am I walking anywhere today.
The kids went back to school this morning after the Christmas break, and something very nice happened. Within a few minutes of each other, two different friends of mine, Michael and Dara, contacted me – one on twitter, one on facebook – to let me know that they had seen my kids walking to school this morning, smiling broadly, holding hands while crossing the street and acting the way they’re supposed to. It made me so happy for several reasons. One, I love my neighborhood – we look out for each other. Two, I’m glad my kids are happy when they’re out and about. Makes me feel a little better about sending them out into the cold after a nice lazy vacation week. And three, I love how easy social media makes it for my friends to keep me up to date.
I’m actually trying to convince my husband to get on Facebook. He has so far avoided all social media with the exception of LinkedIn, but I would love for him to be on Facebook in a very small, private way. He never knows what’s going on with my family and friends unless I tell him. I have to send him pictures and videos separately after sharing them on Facebook. Plus, I think some of my friends are starting to forget that he exists. If you’re not on Facebook, to some people, you might as well not be breathing! And as much as Facebook aggravates me, it has made it very easy to stay connected with the people I actually care about.
So, maybe that’s on the agenda for today: get my husband connected.
And, convince him to get lunch delivered. :-)
