11/21/14 new phones, day 325/365…

We got the girls cell phones activated today. They had been off. William likes his Tracfone  and it was already on. Maggie’s phone was OK and just needed to be turned on. Beth had left hers in the classroom last week, she carries it to use as a watch. When she left the room for a minute it got broken. She is not blaming anyone, but is hurt that it is broken. She had paid for it last year and it was a nice middle of the road phone. I activated the phones. They could not get Beth’s phone to work at the store. Beth’s phone is her link to the world, she is a very social person. Our choices were to get the phone that I could afford, that doesn’t get or send pictures and can’t get apps and can’t retrieve her contacts, or not get a phone. The others were too expensive. Beth was crushed. Maggie had a nice phone and didn’t even want one, but she, Beth, had a model that didn’t do the things that she needs. I was so torn. She does need a phone, and I could have stretched and bought her a nicer one…but she thinks that it is OK to leave the phone in the classroom. I really didn’t want to teach her a lesson, but we got the cheaper phone. She was really upset for an hour then decided that she could live with it. She said that she can start saving for another phone.

Here is a train.

1/8/14 cell phone and adding a picture onto my blog, Day 8/365…

I have made more of a commitment to my cell phone. I am relatively new to cell phones, having mine for less than a year. This last month I got our family phone book and entered all of the numbers and addresses into my phone. I have my kids write all of their phones numbers and information into notebooks now and then…they have had phones longer than me. Then if their phone completely dies they have all of the numbers. I need to do this too. There are numbers in my phone that aren’t in the address book.

I tried to add a picture to one of my contacts in my phone. Before kids I could have done this alone, now with kids, I did try, but my daughter ended up cropping the picture and adding it for me. I do think that I can do the next one.

I had some free time and deleted all of the old messages on my phone. The wrong numbers are now gone. Next is the pictures. All of the ones that have been transferred to my blog need deleted.

We have another day off. The snow has stopped but the temperature is -13 deg before the wind chill and there is ice on the roads. Everything is down because of the ice. At this temperature, the salt won’t melt the ice.

Beth is doing math today. Maggie is cleaning her room and William is on the computer.

We added a picture to my blog. I thought that it would go in the top with the title, but it didn’t.

Here is a picture in our front yard with the sign in it. If it snows again it will be buried. We should bring it in so that no one falls on it and gets hurt.
Here is the girls fort.

12/31/13 New Years Day, power cords, guitar class and rescuing the cat, Day 365/ 365…

Happy New Year!!! Each new year I like to take a look at the past year and see how it went. Last Sunday our Pastor suggested that we use the Bible verse from Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (New Living Translation). He said to look at each season and see how it has affected your life in the past year. For example, in a time to be born, what have you started or begun to set up, or in a time to die, what have you finished or quit doing.

“1 For everything there is a season,

a time for every activity under heaven.

2 A time to be born and a time to die.

A time to plant and a time to harvest.

3 A time to kill and a time to heal.

A time to tear down and a time to build up.

4 A time to cry and a time to laugh.

A time to grieve and a time to dance.

5 A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.

A time to embrace and a time to turn away.

6 A time to search and a time to quit searching.

A time to keep and a time to throw away.

7 A time to tear and a time to mend.

A time to be quiet and a time to speak.

8 A time to love and a time to hate.

A time for war and a time for peace.” (Footnote 1)

I like to be everywhere. This last year I let go of some projects that weren’t helping our family. It is tough for me to end things. Sometimes I think that if we stay with them for a little longer they will work out. I don’t want to give up too early because a lot of things dopolka all stars two squirls
take some work. Letting go of these projects has given me more time for the helpful things that I am doing.

At the beginning of December I lost the power cord for my Nook. It was fully charged so I decided to keep using it and post the entries when the power cord was found. We have found the cord. I am now keeping the cord in a desk drawer.

Monday 12.2.13 I have lost the charging cord for my cell phone and the cord for my Nook. We saw the cords last week. Luckily the kids have a cord that will work on my phone. Charging cords at our house are like sox, they keep getting lost.
Maggie had her last day of guitar today. She was releived. She liked the other students and the teachers, but wasn’t thrilled with the guitar. Her other classes don’t end until the end of the year.

Monday 12.16.13 The smaller cat got caught in Maggie’s dresser yesterday. It is a built in dresser. When Maggie pulled out the bottom drawer the cat climbed in the dresser drawer and then back behind it. We tried to call the cat to get her out, sometimes she comes when we call her. She didn’t come out this time. We tried to reach in, over the back of the drawer and get her. We couldn’t get her. Then we got their cat food dish and shook it to see if she would come out to eat. She didn’t. Next we tried the cat nip. She tried to climb out but didn’t have anything to push off of with her back legs. We gently started to close the drawer some until she was able to use the back of the dresser as a base to push off of and she was able to get out. We were all very happy that she was safe. The cat wasn’t upset by the experience because she tried to climb back in later.

This is the second time that I have written this post. I deleted the entire first draft by mistake. How frustrating…I will be saving more often in the future!!!
