I imagine much like me you've all been spending time getting familiar with the new start page. When it was first announced I was a bit nervous about it. I hate change and inevitably there is something about it I end up hating. (I'm looking at you Facebook) Which is why much to my surprise I love the new start page! My favorite things on it are the Goal board and New Posts in Sparkteams. Both of these features make my SP experience just that much better. The biggest problem I have is not being sure goals to put down!
How are you doing? The holiday season is about to start and for many this is always the hardest time of year. I'm quite lucky that I don't get trick or treaters so we don't buy any Halloween candy. But I know most people aren't so lucky. I was inspired by a story going around Facebook about the greatest Dad in the world. Stock sparkly pencils, toy rings, plastic spiders, yo yos or other small toys all of which you can likely find at your nearest dollar store. This way candy is out of reach and you never even have to bring any into your home.
Before you know it Halloween will be over and the march towards Thanksgiving will begin. For us this will always be a hard time of year. Testing our resolve. But we're strong enough to get through it.
