Technology continued. A friend of mine put the following comment on the blog yesterday, "YIKES remember when we had to worry if the windows were open while yelling at our kids now we have technology." It reminded of this time years ago when my nieces were over. They were in the woods behind my house when their mom came to pick them up. One of my teenage neighbors asked me if I wanted her to call them on her cell phone. I told her that I would do it the old fashioned way and opened the door and yelled to them as loud as I could. They came back.
My so called vacation. I said to my husband last week during my vacation that I was more tired this week than if I had gone to work. During the vacation, I cleaned out the attic, the basement, and my daughters' room. Plus we rearranged their room so that one of them now sleeps on the 4' x 18' loft in their room which you can imagine involved moving all her furniture up 8 feet in the air. So very tiring week but very satisfying as well.
Books. I'm reading this book that is so interesting. It's called The Lover's Dictionary. It's like a diary in that there is only one entry per page but instead, you guessed it, it's set up like a dictionary. So each page is a word that he defines in the context of their relationship. Here's a sample entry:
The date before the one with you had gone so badly - egoist, smoker, bad breath - that I'd vowed to delete my profile the next morning. Except when I went to do it, I realized that I only had eight days left in the billing cycle. So I gave it eight days. You emailed me on the sixth.
I am finding it unique and very clever.
Happy Friday everyone, enjoy the weekend!
