30 Days About Me: Day 9 - Something That Makes Your Life Easier

Here we go with "catch-up" again.

~~~ Day 9: Something That Makes Your Life Easier~~~

My first impulse was to mention an appliance, or some kind of machine.  (Let's say, when my car is working!  That's pretty great!).  However, I'm going in a different direction with my answer and I'm going to say something that makes my life easier is my husband, Rob.

I am so grateful that I am not in the job of Parenthood alone and I am not in this land of Holy Matrimony alone, either.  Rob is involved, attentive and available.  Talking isn't his strong suit (I'm writing this as if he's reading it so none of this is a surprise ;-> ), but he will listen, he will cooperate and he will help.  Having Rob in my life makes my life easier.

~~~ Day 10:  Then & Now~~~

Let's see... I'm at a loss because my current laptop only has pics from 1999 to current.  Here's a pic when my house was pink (my 10 y/o still wishes it was) and my oldest was two:

The trees have grown up and out a lot since then (kind of like me - wait not up, just out... hey! I'm workin' on it!).  For the now:

Here's a fuzzy picture of me while on vacation 2 weeks ago, doing a group "Cheers" with our S'Mores.  And that little head from the picture up above?  That's the tall 13 y/o in the middle of this picture :->;

And that brings us to

~~~ Day 11: Favorite Artist or Band~~~


It's U2.


The first (and only) time I've seen this group was in the very beginning when they were on tour for the War album in 1983.  (Were some of you even born yet??).  It was in a small-ish venue (by their current standards) in Portland, OR  and Bono was climbing up the walls, literally.  It wasn't even my choice to go, but my friends wanted to go, and I liked a boy that was going... and so on and so on and so on.

When music affects you, there's no mistaking that feeling.  You think 'Finally, THIS is what I want to hear.' You soar. You dance. You dream.  You feel happy or sad, or both.  It's the best.

So there we are, all caught up for 30 Days About Me... Join us over at "A Daily Dose of Toni"

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic?
