How in the Hell?

.....is my daughter posting to facebook from the road? From her "iphone" (according to Facebook)? And how much is this costing me??? She doesn't have an iphone....


Or she didn't when she left.


Maybe they're using my iTouch with wireless apps from various hotels?

---------------------------------------------------------

am I supposed to take care of life (or even want to) when I'm knee deep in Work? For example, the following items are on my home "to do" list:

-change oil in both cars

- major car checkup on little car (warning lights flashing crazily)

- grocery shop - I am down to critical and out of diet coke. nothing else matters

- get dog food. Almost as critical as diet coke. but dogs can eat cereal. they don't care

- get dress or find something to wear to friend wedding in 2 weeks. naked probably not an option.

- pay bills - electricity and heat aren't optional

- clean? ah hell, put in the "optional" column....

- plan trip to spain - buy tickets, rent car, pick hotels, contact friends

- plant spring flowers

- prune trees been on to do list for 11 years, time to do it...

- 6 weeks overdue on followup for surgery appointment....

- take son for MRI

- finish daughter's lab work

- order prescriptions

- eye appointment

etc etc etc.......


But blogging? Clearly a necessity. Don't ask....

Pa-shaw! Yeah. Definitely a necessity! I think planning a trip to Spain would fall a close second in my books!

Facebook for mobile is an easy-to-get and (I believe, though it probably depends on your plan) inexpensive application. Don't know why they're saying it's from an iPhone, unless (1) they're assuming everyone has one by now; or (2) they're in cahoots with Apple, doing some suggestive advertising.

You've already made the first step in taking care of life: writing the list. I'll betcha it's not near as long as it seemed when it was on perpetual loop in your head, now, is it?

"When in doubt, blog." Words to live by.

I agree life seems to require a personal assistant these days, no matter how much I try to pare down to the essentials.

You need to call your cleaning lady and have her come back.
Get a guy in the neighborhood to trim your trees...I live too far to help with that.
Make all your phone calls in ONE hour...get a diet coke first. ;)
You can do it.
My kids won't add me as friends on face book...this irritates me. ;)
SPAIN???? I will book if I can tag along.

And at what age do plan on being when you get this list finished??

Clearly!

Clearly this calls for one day away from the computer-a drastic move for sure, but one that will increase your happiness exponentially. Outsourcing sounds like a definite necessity--I'm thinking teens can do oil changes for sure.

With that list I would be blogging too! Oh wait, I've got my own list. Notice I might be going through my Google Reader blog hopping? lol - Avoiding the list or being neighborly? What's more important?

My daughter's been posting on FB from Argentina! I was relieved when I found out it was via her friend's ibook and phone. All that medical stuff has a way of filling up way too much time. Deep breaths! At least while blogging :) Happy weekend!

The MRI and prescriptions sound important. But, otherwise, trash the list. I love making lists and never doing anything on it. But, the actual making of the list calms me down.
