Do you twitter? Or are you TOO OLD?

Ok, I'm not really saying your old, but that's the excuse a lot of my friends use for not using "Twitter", "Instagram", "Vine" or other social media that is all the rage these days...

I've heard it all:

"I don't know how"
"What's a tweet?"
"I'll never figure it out"
"What's a HASH TAG? (# - yes, I know we call it a pound sign, but these days the kids call it a hash tag)" #kidsthesedays
"What's the point?"
"Tweeting is for TWITS, I don't have time to tweet, plus it's just a passing phase (like the internet)"

What's the point? WHAT'S THE POINT?

Get with the program...your kids are doing it and if you're not then you are missing out...not only missing out on the latest and greatest form of global communication, but likely missing out on what your kids are doing and SEEING behind your back!

Plus, there's a lot of FREE useful information for parents...take for instance a tweet I came across this morning:

...and while you're at it...

It's fun, you're not too old and who knows...you might learn a thing or two along the way and reconnect some of those synapses that got zapped during your first few years of mommyhood :) ((or parenthood, if you're a dad reading this!))
Have a great day!


P.S. If you want to learn more about Twitter, Instagram, Vine, etc....GOOGLE IT!

Don't Judge ME!

Yes, I've turned into THAT person! I honestly never thought I'd admit it publicly, but before you judge me, consider this...I bet you are THAT person too!

The kind of person (approaching, just turned, barely past 40!) who gets excited (downright GIDDY) about the most mundane things....

Check it out!
Huh? Whatdaya think? Isn't it awesome? Please tell me I'm not alone in my pure bliss here?! 

PUBLIX GOT NEW SHOPPING CARTS! 
BRAND-SPANKING NEW!!! 
**of course, if it was up to me, they COULD make a few MORE IMPROVEMENTS...
Click here to see what I mean

I told you it was mundane...but it MADE MY MORNING! I mean, what's not to love???

* The wheels work
* There's no crud stuck in the crevices (boogers, old food, germs, bird poo)
* They don't make any annoying noises...just shiny and new!
* Did I mention ALL the wheels work and GO IN THE SAME DIRECTION? 

Awww, it's the little things in life!

Here's another view....

  I think I'm in LOVE!

Just when you thought the school lunchroom couldn't get any worse...

I know, I know, it's still summer time, but I'm sure you've been to Target and you've seen all the "BACK TO SCHOOL" stuff piling up on the shelves. Can you believe it? 

It won't be long now until that first school bell rings....ahhhh, music to my ears :)...

But let's not get sidetracked here...

Back to the story...the LUNCHROOM...am I the only one who would rather be locked on a plane with 1000 snakes than step foot in a school LUNCHROOM? UHHHHH....it makes me twitch just thinking about it....

So getting to my point...today, I found something that is going to amp up the lunchroom annoyance level to an all time high...




I mean seriously??!!! Does everything to need to make noise and light up? No wonder so many kids have attention issues these days....(including mine...but mine aren't nearly as bad as you know who's kids :)

Wonder how long it's going to take school officials to "86" this R2D2?

ENJOY THE REST OF YOUR SUMMER...

Big Hugs & Happy Thoughts...
Me :)
