Weekly Wrap-Up?

I'm willing to bet you can relate when I say that, some days, I have so much going on that I feel like my nerves are going to vibrate right off my skeleton, like over-strummed guitar strings in the hands of a toddler on a sugar high, if one more person utters one more syllable that results in one more thing my mushy, saggy brain needs to remember.

Thus, the weekly wrap-up was born!


All the crap you need to know so my brain doesn't explode from wondering if I forgot to tell you stuff! Yay! In reality I lack the organizational skills to make this a weekly thing, but Occasional Wrap-Up didn't have the same ring to it.

First, in case you missed it, my blog wife, Bethany at Bad Parenting Moments, made an in-faux-mercial for a product called Wine-Not, a sanity saving beverage I could probably use right now. I won't often promise you you'll laugh at something, but this is one of those times - you WILL laugh. And if you don't, at least you'll get to see me in a mud mask, so there's that.



Secondly, remember last week when we had the Finding the Funny link-up? It was a HUGE success, thanks to those of you who linked up and had some laughs. Plus, without even cheating (as far as I know), my As (never) Seen On Pinterest post was the most clicked! Rounding out the hilarity in the Top Five are:

Funny Is Family with My Kids Are the Best. And the Worst.
Funny Is Family (Again? NOW who's cheating?!?!) with Foot Love
The Mom Of The Year with I'm Jealous of My Daughter
Cloudy With a Chance of Wine with 50 Things I Want To Teach My Daughter

Congrats, and thanks for the laughs!

Also, I'm going to be making some minor changes around here, unless I get too lazy or forget or crash my blog in the process. For one, I have a craft blog (What? She does?) that I've neglected because... well, something's gotta give, right? Since its very existence is cluttering up my brain, I'm going to start re-posting some of my old crafts over here on weekends, until they're all moved and I can purge my other blog. If you guys like it, I'll keep doing a weekend craft thing. If you all unsubscribe because an extra post per week threw HTV straight over into the spam category, then, um, I guess I'll know it was a terrible idea. (Please consider telling me to cut out the crafting instead of running off like that, though.)

Speaking of subscriptions, I made a handy-dandy subscription page dedicated to people who get enough jollies here that they want me to gently cram HTV into their email, or Facebook, or Twitter, or Kindle, or YouTube, or a bunch of other places. I love those people. Looooove them. It's almost embarrassing how much I slobber all over them. Not actually on them, of course. But I often leave a small puddle outside their windows.

You can even get HTV as an app on your apple device - how high-tech! Plus it's super easy. Go to www.hollowtreeventures.com on Safari. Then:


If I can figure it out, anyone can. Trust me. Actually, although I like to pretend I'm special, you can use that trick to turn ANY page into an app and then click straight to it from your Home Screen. Y'all are smart and probably knew that, but the news only recently reached me here under the rock where I live.

Finally, for more reading and laughing, you can check out the post I wrote for the Scary Mommy Society about Baby Firsts I never want to do again. Then you can pop over to see what I've written at CraftFail this week, like this seriously un-sexy sexy hair, and a seriously un-yummy cake which I would still eat even though it looks like it's having a nuclear meltdown.

This concludes the awesomeness that is the wrap-up.

  1. OK, I own several apple devices, have for years and have even written a few apps but was never aware of/noticed that "add to home screen" feature. I just verified it on my phone, not because I thought you were a lying thief, but because I like learning things. Thanks for the tip. You should do more "tech tips". Maybe do a "Tech Tip Tuesday" series illustrated with dolls from As the Dollhouse Turns.

    1. Sadly, that's the sum total of all the tech tips I know - it's going to be a short series...

  2. HM, though I love Bethany more than pasta or cheese (but not both together), I would have thought Paige was your blog wife. :) Devan

    1. You're right! We all have sort of a blog sister-wife thing going, except none of us cooks or cleans anything. ;) PS not both together? Are you not a fan of cheesy pasta? I need to know, in case we shouldn't serve Mac-n-Cheese at your sister-wife initiation.

  3. no, no, no, you misunderstood....I meant I like Bethany more than pasta or more than cheese...however, if you put pasta and cheese together, I like that better. :) I gotta work on better getting my point accross in type. <3

    1. Okay, good, because cheesy pasta is what binds this sisterhood together. Well, that and copious amounts of wine and snark. You should come right over!

    2. Indeed I should! Happy Saturday!

  4. I can't wait to see some of your crafts! I have enough trouble managing one little blog, I think two would be practically impossible. That is, unless you got one of your sister wives to do it for you.

    I'm so excited my posts are in the top five! Finding the Funny is my very favorite!

    1. I hear you - I think I have five blogs?!?! Granted, I never touch most of them, but it's getting ridiculous. So far, none of the sister wives have stepped up to manage my blogging mess for me, but then again we are a mostly work-avoidance based operation.

      Huge congrats on your top 5 spots - funny stuff, you deserve it! :)

  5. Oh my hairy monkey farts! That video had me cracking up! The Manchild even stopped what he was doing (playing a game on his xbox) to check it out. That was simply amazing, and I'm SO glad that you were in it! YAY! Iheartyoursillyface!

    1. I'm glad I was in it, too - thanks for watching it! Is it not the best thing to ever happen to your eyeballs? Bethany did a crazy great job on it, I'm so glad all the fun we had translated into laughs. :)
