Random Monday


One day very soon I hope to get back to the blog and post regularly.

Saturday, my youngest, turned 12.  To celebrate she had three friends sleepover Friday.  They had pizza, garlic bread, juice, gatoraide, candy, and chocolate cream pie. They watched one movie, then went swimming in the neighbor’s pool at night.  After that  , I went to bed and they watched two more movies, had popcorn and candy.  All friends went home at 11:00a the next morning, but by evening time all of my kids were sick. Yay me!

Sunday, Father’s Day, left us with one kid well and we headed out to church with just half a family.  Got back and the kid that went with us was not well again.  The hubs and I left all four kids resting at home and we took off to looked at campers again.  We found one we really like and may or may not look into it.

While out and about, we decided it was time for us to get new phones.  This idea has been swimming around in the husband’s head for months and years.  It’s a long story.  Anyhoo, while at the AT&T store trying to “upgrade”, we started playing with a smartphone.  So picture this, two slightly old people playing non-stop with the sample phone.  After awhile it dawns on us, we cannot figure out how to get to the key pad to make a phone call.  Seriously, we’re like this is totally pathetic!  AT&T was having some major issues getting us upgraded, so we have to go back tomorrow.  Hopefully, they’ll be able to tell us how to make a call on the smartphone.  Or maybe we are too old to upgrade?

I took some extra time this weekend and read through a new book I got from the library.  Zero Waste  –  The Ultimate Guide to Simplifying Your Life by Reducing Your Waste. By Bea Johnson.  This book was featured as one of the newest books at our library.  It intrigued me because we do have way too much waste at our home.  While I do not agree with some of her ideas/suggestions,  I did pick up a few golden nuggets.  If you’re interested in this topic, check the book out at the library. What I find really funny when I read these types of environmental books, is the amount trees they killed and the amount of toxic inks they used to have it published.  If she followed her own advice, it should have only been an ebook. Still and interesting read.

  1. You are never too old for smartphones! If my 74-year-old mother-in-law can figure out how to use a IPhone, I have faith in you. You are more technologically advanced that she is. I can’t wait to hear what you get.

    Sorry for all the illness lurking in your house. Stupid germs.

  2. Yes, get a smartphone! Save all your slightly old brain energy for figuring it out. You already know how to do lots of other stuff.

    Did you ever see that cartoon that made the rounds a while back? Imagine you are talking to someone from a hundred years in the past, and you show him your smartphone, saying, “with this device, I have access to almost every piece of information that’s been around since the dawn of civilization.”

    and the man from the past says, “what do you use it for?”

    and you answer, “I argue with strangers on Facebook and watch cute cat videos.”

  3. My brain is struggling with picturing you two as slightly old; so it’s substituting the elderly couple in the Princess Bride. OK, all set on the imagery …
    OH my word!
    ….. I’m sure you two will manage just fine; although you might want to make notes when the store clerk instructs you in making a call.
