When my girls were small, Cheerios was their first finger food and the small round bits were everywhere in our world. Under couch cushions, on the floor of the car, in the car seats and in the bottom of my purse.
I love their bright yellow boxes with one positive word on the back.
I had to enable the word verification feature and disallow annonymous comments. For some reason for the past two weeks, I have been getting some weird spam comments and I find them irritating.
Let me tell you about the deal of the century Pk and I got inadvertently on Friday. I wanted to update my phone and as a Mother's Day present, we were going to the At&t store after work. As I am handing over my old phone to transfer the data, the clerk tells me I can trade it in. I figure if I am only going to get a few dollars, I'll pass but she tells me my old phone is worth 50% off.
That's worth it and I turn to Pk and say "well, if mine is half off and you trade in your phone, we can both get new phones for what it was going to cost for one". Before I get the entire thought out of my mouth, he has the case off his old phone and is handing it over. "Ok".
His phone was worth 200.00 because it was a newer model than mine (which was worth only 100.00) so it was an even trade for a new phone. We walked out of the store with two new iphone5 phones for just over 100.00 (plus the money we spent for a really good case for Pk's phone. That thing is a tank). We were thrilled. I ordered a new tardis case for mine which will come this week.
But the BEST thing about the whole incident is that we got to keep our Light Sabre apps!! I can't overestimate how happy this made us. One of the best parts of this particular phone is that it can become a light sabre and make real light sabre sounds. I know where Pk is in the grocery store because I can hear his light sabre. Yes, I know having reliable communication equipment is the most important but having a light sabre in your pocket cannot be underestimated for entertainment value.
I had my diagnostic mammogram yesterday. It's the same as a regular mammogram but different. They use a different set of lenses and plates to take close ups of my breasts that have been squeezed to an inch in thickness. It's nerve wracking because you have to wait for the doctor to read them before you get to leave. It turns out I have some calcium deposits which look ok for now but they will keep an eye on them and I get to go back in 6 months instead of a year.
