I don't know what phone carrier you have, but we use Verizon, and they let us put a "max" usage limit on it. Like, we get 10GB shared data every month, but we can have them send us a text when we hit, say, 7GB. It helps kind of keep us in check, seeing how my husband likes to use Spotify on his phone in the car and at… » 8/28/14 10:50am Today 10:50am

I started hating it once the news decided that showing videos of celebrities doing it EVERY DAY was more important than anything else that was going on in the world. Like they honestly should have changed the name from "ABC7 News" to "The Ice Bucket Challenge Hour." I'm not even kidding. For TWO FREAKING WEEKS that's… » 8/27/14 11:36pm Yesterday 11:36pm

Looks like a cat. Has always looked like a cat. Will continue to look like a cat until one of them gets the dumb idea to changer the ways she's drawn into human form. Therefore, will continue in my mind to be a cat. » 8/27/14 6:00pm Yesterday 6:00pm

I've started cutting/coloring my own (hello YouTube, pinterest, and Sally Beauty) to save myself about $120 every month.

Chritter, I like you and am not trying to start trouble by joining in here, so I hope this comes across the right away. I understand that you meant this post as a "be awesome to each other missive," but even when I read it, something felt off to me. It felt like this post was protecting the "offenders" and punishing… » 8/23/14 12:16pm Saturday 12:16pm

1. I've been procrastinating on scheduling appointments for 2 weeks ( I HATE talking on the phone), and 15 minutes ago, I made a vet appointment for the cat, scheduled my overdue oil change, and scheduled our annual furnace cleaning and inspection. Doesn't seem like much, but when you've felt overwhelmed and dreaded… » 8/22/14 3:19pm 8/22/14 3:19pm
