Text Me.


My husband is a bit older than me. Well, let's just say it - 17 years older than me - but I'm a bit of an old soul, so it works for us.

One thing we've never seemed to link up on is technology. Since I'm in marketing, and we marketers are always looking for the newest thing to get the word out and get people to buy, buy, buy, I'm typically an early adopter when it comes to new things.

I walk around the house with my iPad, Blackberry (we no longer have a home phone), laptop, Rebel camera, Flip camera, etc. and most of the time he just ignores me. Actually, most of the time I'm not even using the stuff, just carrying them either up or downstairs or looking for one of the fifty million charges for each device because I have a dead battery and cannot ever find the darn things (I digress).

So when my hippie husband - child of the 50s, teen of the seventies - decided he wanted a cell phone several years ago, I was thrilled. Soon, I couldn't separate him from the thing.

Then, he saw how cool my Blackberry was,  now he has his own.

This week, he's realized the power of the text. He can communicate with me, his students, his mom, and never actually talk to anyone on the phone. For someone that can't stand to spend more than three minutes at a time on a phone speaking with someone, this is a huge discovery.  This morning, when he kissed me goodbye, he said the three words every woman wants to hear from their husband "I'll text you."

While I applaud his willingness to catch up to the modern day, I am a bit worried I may never receive a real phone call from him again.

Stay tuned.

  3. Jamie is only 4 years older than me, but he didn't have a cell phone until I was pregnant with Caitlyn and I forced him to get one. When we got a plan with free texting he started slow, but now loves it! He doesn't even have a phone with a keyboard which would drive me INSANE. Now if I could only get him to answer when I call...

    I wish more people would text. Sometimes it's just easier than making a phone call! :))

Blog Cards (The New Calling Card)

I came across this budding trend online and thought - what a great idea! I have people that occasionally ask for my blog address and wouldn't it be great to have a blog card with just my blog address on it to give to people? I guess you could say it's the new calling card. It can make your blogging duties feel much more ligit and even promote your blog if it's something you're trying to profit from.


moo.com has templates for mini cards that would be perfect for blog cards. Cathe at Just Something I Madeposted some great examples of blog cards she's used in the past to promote her blog -

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
