Baby Door Hanger

I bought a new phone on Father’s Day. It was my  first experience with smart phone technology. Needless to say, I just got my second replacement phone, yesterday. The person who was helping me was very nice but incredibly distracted.  In fact, he was not listening to a thing I said. Finally, I was passed off to someone else who was also very nice and assured me I was in great hands.

My biggest concern was that my contacts were on my phone. Why is this so important? I don’t talk to most of the people listed in my address book but I do text and I guess it’s a comfort to know that I can reach out to them if I want to.

She showed me my contacts and I noticed right away that one person wasn’t present.  She asked me who it was and I relayed that it didn’t matter “who” it was as much as the fact that the entry was not in my phone!

Improvisation with a 5 Year Old

Last week, I was fortunate enough to have my 5 year-old niece and 3 year old nephew come in from out of town to get in some quality bonding time.   It was during the “heat wave” and they were so incredibly well-behaved. I have many wonderful memories but the ones that seem to stand out were at the very end.

One fun moment came from both of them as they asked me, “What can I do for you?”  They were armed with a little fans that had water misters attached.  One sprayed the back of my neck while the second came to me and “cooled” me off with the fan.  They continued to do my face, arms and legs. It was heavenly.  At one point, my niece pretended she was giving me a manicure and cleaned my fingernails with the mister just like in the salon. Fun time and it was so nice to be cooled during this crazy heat! Read the rest of this entry
