I thought I’d try to write a post, while I’m sitting here waiting for a connection to magically appear. Can’t check email, can’t go through my Reader, it’s as though there is no such thing as the Internet. So I wait.
I organize all my Windows Live Writer drafts into folders.
I plan which posts to set up for my weekend posts for 2011.
For some reason the connection we try to hop onto has been on the wonky side lately. Hopefully we’ll be in a position to re-establish a connection of our own in the not-too-distant future, but in the meantime, we have to wing it.
We’ve been doing a little research into cell phones lately, in the hopes that we’ll also be able to finally get new phones maybe in a few months. Can you believe we’ve had the same ones for over 4 years? I don’t know anyone who’s kept the same cell phone for that long. I wanted do a little research online, find out just what the difference was between 3g and 4g networks, and when exactly is Verizon planning on getting the iPhone, but no such luck for me tonight. I guess it doesn’t really matter since we won’t be able to do anything about it until probably Spring anyway, but sometimes it’s fun to “window shop.”
We put up our little tree this weekend. The kids were so happy! We were able to pick up a small string of lights to add and it really boosted the whole effect. We got one of those LED strings – have you seen them? They’re pretty neat. I don’t think I’d want a whole tree done with them but as a supplement, they add a lot of depth to the glow.
My son got a some kind of Mario game at the library, and now it’s all Mario all the time. I actually heard him say, “Remember when I used to be into Spiderman?”
He’s been “into” Spiderman since he was 2! I figured he’d wear a Spiderman suit to his wedding. And now Spiderman is “used to”? He’s been walking around trying to imitate the way Mario talks. He told me, “Mom, I think when it comes to me liking stuff, I don’t just like things, I become obsessed with them.”
Ummm, yeahhhhhh, you could say that.
We’ve gone through pretty much every item of clothing possible with Spidey on it, sheets, hats, gloves, shoes, toys, pillows, pajamas, costumes, you name it we’ve probably had it at some point or other. I’ve been trying to wean him of having so much Spidey stuff, and then he got into ants, then sharks – he’s read every ant and shark book our library has to offer, and ever borrowed all the ant and shark videos. And now he’s into Mario. Lord have mercy, I am NOT getting Mario sheets!
We spent a good portion of the weekend running errands and doing stuff, and it felt pretty good. Busy, but in a good way, you know? Christmas has been blooming in our hearts, even my son said he felt like Christmas lived in his heart and not on the calendar, and I thought that was pretty cool. He summed it up well for me.
And how was your weekend?
