So You Say You Want Technology

My children love technology.  Who am I kidding...the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.  But in real life you can't sit on your iPod all day and ignore that there are chores and responsibilities for each of us. In real life we have to be responsible.  At least that's what I tell myself when I sit down to pay bills. What's that saying? “If you do the things you need to do when you need to do them, then someday you can do the things you want do when you want to do ...continue reading

Do It With Me: Schoolwork Storage Project

Today my oldest daughter, Savannah, had her 5th grade graduation ceremony.  It was surreal to think that she won't be going to elementary school anymore.  She has a wonderful class of students graduating with her and I just can't believe that she will be starting middle school next year.  She's so excited and very ready for this next stage of life.  I think I'm ready but today was definitely a huge milestone in our lives.  Someone is seriously going to have to hold me ...continue reading
