What a fun way to spend two hours of my evening. The sad thing is I still have 390 (unread) e-mails waiting for me to figure out what to do with them. There was one with the subject line "You have a new bill from ______ Credit Card" dating back to October 2011. Hopefully that was paid otherwise we will have a big surprise interest payment coming up. LOL! So much junk mail from so many on-line companies... obviously there was a big jump in these since the middle of November. As much as I hate having them clog up my inbox I do appreciate grabbing a coupon here or there or being "reminded" that I "need" to buy something.
How do you tackle the never-ending stream of e-mails? If you have a tip (besides using the delete button more often) please leave it in the comments.
Daughter (8 years old) is still loving the Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull. We went to the used bookstore yesterday and her picks were The Secret Garden by Frances
Hodgson Burnett (which I read to her earlier this year but she wanted her own copy), A Little Princess also by Frances
Hodgson Burnett (which I have a feeling I will be reading to her as well in the near future!) Little Men by Louisa May Alcott (because Little Women wasn't available) and Matilda by Ronald Dahl (which she scanned through and pointed out the word "ass" to me and then wanted to know why people use bad words. Uhhh...)
This blogfest is hosted by Trisha. Go visit her blog for all the details... there is still time to join in the fun!
What are the requirements?
1. Between December 2nd and 3rd, post a pic of yourself as a baby, and/or;
2. Tell us a story about when you were a baby (no doubt you can't quite remember it yourself, but you've probably heard some stories from other members of your family).
How could I not join in this blogfest after finding this beauty of a picture! Baby Julie at seven months old. Unfortunately I don't have any fun stories to share at this time; I'll have to hit up my mom for a few when she is here next.
