Some people really, really love Star Wars. They are so fanatical that they get a tattoo that will last for their entire lifetimes on their bodies. Of course, some people want to outdo each other, and if you are one of those people, you’re going to want to take that fanaticism past the grave, to infinity, and beyond. Wait, wrong one. Oh well, it’s all in space so it’s the same thing, right?
I’ve reached a point in my life where I worry a lot! Sure, I worry about my soon-to-be-teenaged daughter, I worry about my health, and of course, the well being of my parents. There are a million ways to keep tabs on my kid, and I tend to be pretty responsible about myself… but my parents are never going to wear one of those “alert” necklaces, nor are they going to take kindly to my checking up on them…
There is nothing like a nice hot shower, and of course nothing like stepping out of said shower, dripping all over the floor, while you freeze your butt off drying yourself with a towel. Then there’s the aftermath, a wet soggy towel, or the boatloads of laundry that need to be done. It happens everyday, and you’re washing over, and over again. sigh. There’s got to be a better way.
Summer is a sweet memory and the Fall is now in full swing. The worst part about it, is getting the crew used to waking up early on those dreaded school days. I find myself trudging up and down the halls doling out 5 minute warnings like a living snooze bar. It gets old fast. If only there was an alarm clock that I could rely on to get everyone up on time… because then, I could just sleep in!
You know how it is., If you go ahead and get your parents a computer, you will either be involved in lifetime tech support, walking them through every single step of sending an email… forever. Conversely, the thing will sit there, only to be used when you happen to be there for a visit, at which time you will teach her to turn it on…AGAIN. You know your folks would love being able to be “online” Why does it have to be so hard?
