Think I'll Go Back To Writing Letters And Reading Books

Well, still working on the Verizon phone data usage problem.  ("Who Are The Gods Of Electronics And How Do I Appease Them?") I've sent my frustration out into the Twitterverse which has prompted some response from their tech support.  Who knows what will come of it, I just want to try all avenues of help and witness their accountability.  It's one thing to call a customer service number, maybe not have the positive result you were hoping for, then writing a letter, or whatever yet still be frustrated and share with your family, friends, the grocery store clerk.  Anyone that will listen to your tale of woe. 

But now, with our lovely social media outlets, you can call out a company that is messing things up and share it with hundreds.  Thousands!  You receive helpful advice from others that have had similar situations as well.  When it comes to products failing I've found sharing on Twitter brings results from the company.  Have you used Twitter to try to resolve a problem?  If so, what happened?

It seems Comcast has brought us to the brink and our new television isn't the lovely "plug & play" ease that it said.   Oh, that's not entirely true.  We did plug it into an outlet, and after clicking a menu button and following other prompts channels did appear, just not our normal channels and it's all kind of crazy.  So all right Comcast.  You win again.  I'll make my appointment and, hopefully, at least one new electrical item will work correctly.

We've thrown another electronic gadget into the mix.  I have a new laptop.  (I worked hard to earn this!)  But my e-mail isn't transferring, and my screen is getting bigger and bigger.  I was so used to my old laptop, that this will take some time to work out the bugs and see how we're are going to get along. 

How are you with technology?

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? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
