I’ve seen this one before but it’s still awesome.
Older babies, rubber ducks and other floating bath time toys and a laundry basket!
Who’d a thunk?
It’s Ultimate Blog time again and I thought I’d start this one with a life hack.
This one is for parents. For those of you who enjoy Disney movies I just found out that if your child writes a letter to their favorite character they will supposedly write back. The link above takes you to the appropriate page with the address but, just in case:
Walt Disney Communications
P.O. Box 10040
Lake Buena Vista, Florida
The site had some cool Hacks so I’m make post a few of them.
As strange as it may seem I’m actually excited about this. The glockenspiel was there when we moved here in 1975 and I always enjoyed listening to it when it played the full story out.
I have just discovered Cooking With a Wallflower and I think I might be in love!
Her recipes look absolutely wonderful! The pictures are colourful and the recipes look really simple so she’s getting a shout out from me:).
Step by step print and photo instructions always make a recipe easier to follow, lol.
Enjoy, I know I’m going to.
Ain’t that the truth!
What’s that saying? Cry and you cry alone, laugh and the whole world laughs with you?
Have you ever noticed though that our moods are almost as contagious as the common cold?
If you’re in a bad mood then those around you will catch it and be in a bad mood too.
If you’re in a good mood then those around you are too.
Curious, isn’t it?
Carly Knobloch wrote a wonderful post about how much time is too much phone time in the bedroom and I thought I would give my response here.
I vote that any time is too much time. My phone only makes it into the bedroom if it’s during the day and I’m barricading myself in because I’m a grouchy bear or I’m expecting an emergency phone call from family.
My phone stays in the living room on my table/file cabinet right along with my laptop, tablet and iPod. None of that makes it to the bedroom since I much prefer to fall asleep to absolute quiet with no distractions in the form of things that can light up my dark room, ding or otherwise do things to disturb me during my downtime.
I do not use it as an alarm clock. It’s way too tantalizing to check email or reply to texts when I pick it up in order to check the time. I have one of those old fashioned gadgets called an alarm clock. You know, that thing that makes an extremely annoying buzzing sound at the proscribed time each morning. It is even newfangled enough to have a second alarm so I don’t have to fuss around with it in the dark to set it so my boyfriend will get up at the correct time several hours after I get up.
I may be the black sheep here but some days I regret ever getting a cell phone and internet.
Yes, a cell phone has allowed my family to reach me no matter what but that is a good thing AND a bad thing. There are times when I just want to escape without leaving home, which I do manage but I shouldn’t have to hide from everyone after I hide my phone and other electronic gadgets in order to do so. Gone are the days where if I wasn’t near my landline they would have to call back or hope I checked the call display to find out that they called and call them back. Gone are the days where I could enjoy a less stressful day with a good book at the beach because they always manage to find me even if they don’t know me personally or whether they are there physically or not.
What say my readers? How much time is too much phone time in the bedroom?
