I….Love, Hate, Think, Believe, Feel, Wish

I found this great site today. twistori.com I found this very interesting to watch. Basically its feeding from what people post around the world in their twitter account. (Twitter is like a mini blog I guess. People post one or 2 line sentences about what they are doing that very moment. Many twitterers post 20+ times a…




In case you didn't know….

I am way too excited that this came out today.      New tracks, go-karts & motorcycles, play up to 11 other people, and race people around the world via the internet. Awesome.    that is all. 




Once a week blogging

Apparently I haven’t had much to say lately!  I just haven’t felt like blogging much lately, I am sure that will change soon enough and I will be back to boring everyone with the details of our not so fascinating life.  …



Holding Out

I told Matt a couple of weeks ago that I was going to hold out until May to turn on the air-conditioning.   Is holding out really that difficult?  …



Human Footprint Part 2

I did get to watch the Human Footprint the other night and was a little disappointed.  Even though it held true to its promise of showing all the things we consume in our life time, it didn’t express the impact of the consumption, or even suggest any changes to our lifestyles.  I admit I could have…



Human Footprint

I think the Human Footprint looks interesting.  It airs tonight on National Geographic at 9pm.  It shows the total American’s consumption in a lifetime all at once.  I think we tend to be a wasteful society and there are areas we can cut back.  I encourage you to watch this.   I will not be watching…



I think I fixed the subscribe feature

maybe this will work.



Test Post

It has come to our attention that subscribers are not getting emailed, so I played with a few setting and I am testing it.  If you get an email please let me know by commenting.  Thanks!  



comments fixed

so I broke the comments when I upgraded our blog to wordpress 2.5. I have them fixed. Sorry.    Feel free to comment on all the posts, 3 times to make up for it. 



Waiting

As you may have noticed we have not blogged about our adoption in a while.  Quite honestly it is because there is nothing to report.  …



Garage Sale, Babysitting, and More

On Saturday we held a garage sale and we considered it a success.  We cleared out a lot of stuff and made some money.  We also babysat our neighbor Ethan.  He is just about five months old and is really smiling a lot and starting to make fun noises!  (Matt also changed his first diaper…



Cut the Crap

  I have signed up for yet another challenge this month to go along with the Buy Nothing Challenge.  I am going to work on seriously de-cluttering the house.  Those of you who live around us know we are having a garage sale tomorrow and are thinking, “Didn’t she do that already?”  Well no, not…



Blog Updates

We made some updates to the back-end of our blog last weekend and had a couple of glitches.  We think everything is all worked out now, but we did lose some of our email subscribers.  We re-registered the emails we could remember, but we could have missed a few.  So, if you usually get an…



Buy Nothing Challenge

Matt and I have decide to participate in a Buy Nothing Challenge.  We have actually been kicking around the idea since January 1, and one of the blogs I read regularly issued a challenge and we decided to go for it.  For the month of April we can only buy the essentials.   That means: No new…
