If something is on my list that I can't get done, I let it go and move right along. Last night, around 11 pm, I wasn't tired so I went grocery shopping as my market is open 24 hours.

Even in NJ, there are many that you would have to be proposed and seconded by members, and it would be helpful if others knew you. The club will ask how long they have known you and how. If you choose to call that snobby, perhaps it is not for you. There are others who if your DH has a co-worker, that is fine There are still others that take anyone. [ Reply | More ]

Xbox Live is a must. It will allow your children to play online with/against their friends and other players. And with the headset they can communicate with each other while playing. It was confusing to me in the beginning but my children figured it out immediately. Remember, Xbox is Microsoft and they are not known for being user friendly. Sometimes I wonder who Microsoft uses for their focus groups...the testers and the testees must be aliens. [ Reply | More ]

FYI, if your DC is very young, please monitor their XBOX email. If your dc starts playing online, they will start getting friend requests from wack jobs. If they are too good at a specific game, they might get threats. My DC was pretty good at Titan Falls, started getting threat bc he was killing off the same people online over and over again.

[ - ] A thought for the holidays. Over the weekend, I had some time to spare and went to an Asian massage place in my neighborhood. On impulse, I brought a box of Duane Reade chocolate for the staff. Their responses were out of proportion: one gave me a big hug, one looked as though she might cry, and the third made us cups of green tea. In the best UB tradition, let’s all try to do a Random Act of Kindness some time this week. And happy holidays. 20 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
