Ever look at your friends’ houses and think, “I’m a total failure as a wife and/or mother?” My friend Stacy’s house makes me crazy. She has a daughter nearly the same age as Charlie and her house is always tidy and clean. I’ve never even seen a stray hair on her bathroom counter. Seriously??? She’s also a health nut and cooks every night. They rarely eat out. Why am I even friends with her?
Last night one of my great friends came to this tiny town we currently live in. He’s running for Secretary of State, and I couldn’t be more proud. We met in college as officers in the Young Democrats (wait Republicans, Independents and otherwise undeclared readers! This post isn’t about politics).
He held a fundraiser here because one of his best friends and political allies is a native son of this town. The friend has
If you’ve longed to mate with a fabulously nerdy fella I’ve got the event for you!
What is Gizmodo Day? It’s a day when all lovers of the website Gizmodo.com come together in their respective cities and talk about Apple products (remember, Gizmodo is the site that got in the middle of the mess with the stolen iPhone 4 prototype) and other computer technology as well as general gadgetry. It’ll be kind of like a TweetUp since most of the word is getting spread through Twitter, but it will be really guy-heavy. My guess is the Gizmodo demographic looks something like this:
UPDATE: For the links to the blogs of all of the fabulous LR CheeseburgHers go here.
Not this. This is a satellite party, but it’s the closest I’m getting to a blog conference this year, so I’ll take it! And it was a blast.
Officially, it was CheeseburgHer10.

Do you suffer from Internet Multiple Personality Disorder?
Are you different on Facebook than Twitter? Are you different online than IRL (in real life, duh).
Last night my husband and I went to the Wired Word bible study at our church for the first time. Since we’re both so “wired” we thought it might be right up our ally. It was.
As soon as we walked in our Paster said
This month’s issue (September 2010… hello? When I received it August wasn’t even here yet) of Macworld features a two-page centerfold of a women laying on a blanket in a park presumably reading on her iPad. She’s not a supermodel, just a regular girl. Like you and me. It was so refreshing to see this image in a magazine I normally just skim because it’s so guy-geared.
The article is about how the iPad has affected the whole life of those who own one. And it has.
Except for blogging (which I occasionally do on the iPad) I rarely open my MacBook these days. And my iPhone has been relegated to just making phone calls and taking pictures (yes, it’s an iPhone 4… remember, I’m married to a Mac addict).
When my hubby first mentioned the iPad more than a year ago I thought, “Oh great. Another freaking expensive toy that he is going to HAVE TO have. Awesome.”
Can you hear the sarcasm?
At that time we had no idea what it would be called or if it really even existed. His geeky gadget blogs were abuzz, but Apple is pretty serious about their secrets (lol). Who knew it would end up with such a feminine-napkiny name?
Of course we pre-ordered ours and
If you think you don’t need the new iPhone 4 you are WRONG. Now, my definition of a “need” might be a little skewed, but who cares.
Also, if you married a geek (like I did), move along. You’ve already …
We decided as a family to keep Christmas to a minimum this year. We have been working on paying off our debt for just over a year and are about 1/3 of the way there. In order to keep the momentum going we have committed to making sacrifices until we are debt free, which should be within the next two years if we keep this up.
