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.
