Yesterday Andrew and I were watching "Life on Deck with Zack and Cody" and yes I was laughing. Anyway on the show Cody has a girlfriend and every time they hugged or were cheesy Andrew would cover his face in embarrassment. I said....
"You may not have a girlfriend Andrew" he replied "Maybe can I have a girlfriend when I am a teenager? Or when I'm person who needs a person?". "Sure" I said

good intentions

I have good intentions of blogging, you know a family history right? But time gets away with me and I like to put pictures on but they are still on my camera that is downstairs, the excuses go on and on. It is not my favorite thing to be at the computer. Today while watching a morning show they were talking about technology. ("I love technology, but not as much as you and me...") And they did a piece on a girl here in the valley that writes on about 8 different blogs, follows 80 blogs, twitters and follows tweets, and facebooks. She said "I try not to spend more than 2 hours a day on the computer." As I am trying not to judge I couldn't help thinking "holy crap, what a waist of time". It is important for me to get some blogs done so I can remember some of the fun things we have done and cute things that have been said. I wish I was better at it, but at the same time I am glad it does not consume me. What is important here is our interaction with people right? Am I nice to Steve and my kids. Do I spend time with them? Do we have fun and laugh? Am I a good friend? Do I watch out for my neighbors? Am I being responsible with my time? It was definitely something to think about.
