How long can you ignore your phone?

I'd like to issue a long-overdue apology to each of the five roommates I had in college: I'm sorry that I did not answer the phone when it was ringing. I knew that it drove you crazy, but I was absorbed in something else/didn't feel like talking to anyone, and thus, did not answer the phone.



But, I…

It's never too early to start planning Mother's Day

For anyone who does not realize this: Mother's Day is a big deal. It is a chance to tell your Mom how much you love and appreciate her.

And, for me, (and with the help of a little technology) it is the chance to drive her a little crazy.…

The family that texts together, stays together?

If you couldn't tell from this blog, I love my Mom. (Hi, Mom!) I try to keep in touch with her - we do in-person visits, Facetime, regular phone calls and texts. I even sometimes play text games with her near her birthday or mother's day, where I will text pictures of my cat for a week until she tells me to stop it and send a picture of her grandson. (It's a fun game; you should try it with your parent of choice.)…

Can you text and walk at the same time? (Hint: The answer is no)

We all know not to text and drive by now. (Right?) But how many of us walk and text or participate in other forms of "distracted walking?"

I try to be cognizant about not using my smartphone around my son - to be fully present when I am around him so that his main childhood memory of his mother isn't one of me with my body hunched over a handheld screen. But I know that I have texted…

Orange park Florida Momma's

I am looking for anyone that has old cell phones, and ink cartridges and toners. I am collecting these because I have an agency that takes them and pays me for it. Because I am unable to work outside the home, I find eventful and easy ways that I can do to keep me busy. I am doing this to work on getting my life straight, and also working on getting a new wheelchair. So if your in the Jacksonville or Orange Park area, and you wouldn't have an issue giving me the used cartridges and toners…

Kids and Technology (posted by Stacy Hladek)

Did you know that you could have a stranger in your home right at this moment that you are completely unaware is present?  If you or anyone in your home is communicating online or through texting with someone you do not know personally, then you are opening your home to a stranger.  Technology can be a wonderful tool, but it also can open our families, our children included, to new dangers.

A recent poll indicated that 90 percent of middle and high school student have…

Are Cell Phones Making Your Child Sick?

Cell phones have become a way of life and more and more I see them in the hands of youngsters.  Many families no longer have a house phone (mine included) because everyone is reachable via cell.  Have you ever seen that commercial where everyone is fighting over the minutes in the data plan?  It goes something like…

Best Phones Available Right Now

I'm pretty sure the last time I went to the store, there were about 10 new phones that I'd never seen before. I also expect that the next time I go into that store, I'll see 10 more new phones.

My point is that it seems like there is a new cell phone model out every day. But there are, in my estimation, a few that stand above the rest. So why not? Here they are:

1) Samsung Galaxy S III - This is the best Android phone on the market. It's easy to use, has a large…

On Amusement Parks and I-Phone Obsessed Parents

 
So I was a brave mama and took Em to Six Flags Great Escape this past Saturday. Despite the fact that we got a later start than I had hoped (thanks to a big old nail that made its way through our car tire), we had a really great time.
 
Sure, there were some stressful…

Kids and Cell Phones: How Young is Too Young?

How young is too young for a cell phone?
It may seem like a strange question, but I'm really curious. 


Increasingly, I've seen kids as young…

The Benefits of A Pre-paid TracFone

About a year ago my mother in law was out for a walk with her dogs when she fell and hurt herself really bad. She's 66 years old and sort of resistant to technology, but after she fell she had a change of heart. She had to go the hospital and had to get several MRI's and while we are thankful her injuries were not life threatening, we really wished she had a cell phone so she didn't have to walk back to her house to call 911. If she had broken her leg instead of just scraping it up, who…

ROTARY-PHONE GOD

You know what?? Back in the day, rotary phones didn't have speed-dial or fast connection. No matter what, when making a call, we had to patiently DIAL ten digits, one-by-one & wait for the caller to pick up. As far as expecting immediate answers, rotary phones inadvertently taught us patience. Today, when I'm trying to call God, do you think I'm expecting fast-speed, immediate cell-phone service out of Him? Perhaps God is still taking calls His way...i.e., the rotary way. Maybe what I… Continue

Hello? Oh, sure, (flush!) I can talk . . .

So I had a little meltdown at work today. You know, holiday stress, last-minute assignments, all that fun stuff. And so I snuck out of my cubicle kingdom for a minute to go take a few deep breaths.

I went to the ladies room. Not a good choice for a variety of reasons, but my options were limited. I locked the door of the stall and just stood there, trying to organize my thoughts and tell myself that yes, I could get everything done, and no, I wouldn't have a nervous…

They Just Pop Out That Way

Watching three girls go from womb to now, I have had the privilege of learning/realizing that yes indeed, some things do just come to us girls naturally. It's like a code of honor that Mother Nature plants in

their heads while they're being created. Here are a few that I find

worthy of comment...



You must never, ever go to the bathroom alone. What…

Texting - Walk the Talk

I got busted! With all my high and mighty talk about placing limits on my kids' texting habits, it appears I needed a reminder to follow my own rule.



We took our annual family trek to Frankenmuth, Michigan a couple of weeks ago. For those of you who've never heard of Frankenmuth, it's a super cool town known as "Michigan's Little Bavaria." It is also home to the uber-famous Bronner's CHRISTmas Wonderland, the world's largest Christmas store. Bronner's unabashedly proclaims "the joy… Continue

Earth Promise: Reduce and Reuse: It Helps the Environment

Stuff. Possessions. Things. We all have way too much of it. Especially if you have children or if you are one to hold onto things for sentimental reasons. (You know who you are!) There may be a psychological underlying reason why you hold onto your stuff, but no matter what the reason is, there are ways to help reduce and reuse it.



Here are some ideas to reduce and reuse:



Birthday party favors. When my girls come home from birthday parties, the flood… Continue

Does this phone make me sound fat?

In this age of blogging, email and cell phones, we're often left to speculate what the people we're communicating with on a regular basis look like. Blogger and other social networks are nice because you can post photos on your profile, but are those accurate representations? Take my photo, for example. I HATE having my picture taken, so when I come across one that is decent I tend to glom onto it and use it over and over. A photographer friend of mine took that photo of me--under protest--when… Continue
