Mingling with the girls.. again

The girls have been here all week.  They left yesterday and we decided to do a mingle together before they left. 

1.  Do you have Spring flowers (or any flowers) blooming in your yard right now? Show us!
2.  Are you watching American Idol this season? What do you think about the new judges?
3.  Tell us something that happened to you last week!

Busy week with the girls

The nieces are here this week and we have been busy.  I am so thankfully that they still enjoy coming.  My house is a total disaster.  I am trying to remember that this is fun time.  Not the time to be anal about the house.  I want to enjoy every moment I can with them.

I want to start being diligent in updating my blog.  I have been failing drastically in this area.  I also need to get back to updating the food journal. 

I was finally able to get a new phone.  My samsung propel died when Angel was admitted into the hospital.  A friend was kind enough to give me her husband’s old phone.  I had a bit of fun using his Blackberry.  However, the trackball was giving me serious issues about moving to the right.  The phone also froze up quite a bit.  However an upgrade to the phone I wanted was 150.00.  No way!  My husband was able to get it for 30.00 because he is the primary phone. 

I got this random idea a bit over a week ago to check again.  The price went on special for 39.99!  I snagged that as soon as I could make up my mind.  LOL. Of course there was alot of time spent weighing the pros and cons.  Money is an issue here.  I finally came to the conclusion that if Angel ended up back in the hospital.. I need to have a good working phone.  So decision made. 

I have been having a blast checking it out.  It is an HTC Aria.  (I know, we are so behind.. lol).  Right now I have been researching on how to get the best use out of it.. Looking up tips on how to save battery usage, etc.  I just love research.. yes I am a nut.  :)

Mingling on a Tuesday!

It's been awhile. I decided I needed to get back to the mingles even though I am late. The nieces are here.. gonna be a crazy week of fun!

1. How do you compile grocery list – by an inventory, or writing things as you run out?
2. At what age do you plan on retiring (or your spouse retiring)?
3. What do you plan on doing when you retire?
