When I was growing up we knew everyone up and down our street.
My DIL stays on her cell phone all day as well, even when the kids are trying to tell her something. Who in the world is she talking to? She's missing a lot and soon she's gonna be missing a husband and her kids.
Sure wish my wife would buy me a pick up truck.Heck I just wish my wife would let ME get a truck.
"I got rid of the TV"..... and now I aimlessly troll the internet all day! Great improvement....
During the Great Depression, our family literally lived out of the garden. Most everything was canned, pickled, fermented, pork was salted and smoked, chickens kept live until needed. Neighbors would trade stuff. Good living. Not poor, just the absence of money.
Cell phones are a blessing and a curse, but sometimes you see too much of the curse, in the form of the distance it puts between family.
Husband and I both have the day off tomorrow and the kids will be in school.I'm counting the hours.
It's all about what your TV is tuned to --TV is not the enemy, people.
I can top the cell phone in the resturant. This time it was a mom, dad, and two kids. Mom had one phone to her ear, and texting with another. Dad and kids ignored.
If your child is having problems with ADHD or even emotional issues like anger or crying easily, try cutting out ALL artificial dyes and preservatives in food for 1-2 weeks. I can almost guarantee you'll be amazed at the difference. I was!!
If you smile others will smile back.
I can't understand how anyone can look you in the eye and you not smile back in acknowledgement. Its just second nature to me too. I don't care what they look like.
Just remember that your time is the most important gift you can give.
the 4 seasons are baseball, football,Hockey and fishing.
I stepped out of my office yesterday and had to stop and listen to the strange noise I heard...It was birds singing! I can't remember the last time I could hear that - and we back up to a mall and a Marta station!
My oldest is graduating from Tech and my youngest just started at Georgia. We are a happy house divided.
Hold off on the gardening binge. We are likely to have a late spring this year.
I love yall but can we please stop the preaching? I don't read the unvent to be told how I'm doing it wrong. Be happy and don't let the mean people get you down.
My bulldog has more love in him than a poodle.
I have a new puppy that just loves the water.She splashes all the water out of her bowl and loves to play while taking a bath.I can't wait until warm weather to take her with us camping at the lake.She will have a ball in all that water.
I love when "someone who does not look like you" breaks into a huge grin when seeing you in the grocery store because you are neighbors and because they're fun to talk to.
Many great film-makers had their interest in films sparked by horror movies. If they don't watch the "garbage" at your house, they'll go somewhere else and do it - out of your sight.
@ New Mom - don't worry about the c-section pain. The joy of loving your baby girl will far outweigh the discomfort from the c-section. Congratulations on your baby girl!
What are the two seasons of the year? Hunting season and getting ready for hunting season. Signed...A Hunter's Wife
Happiness is a 7 year old flying high on a rope swing.
I loved that Unvent about the number of partners in a marriage.It's right on target.
God luck bringing your new baby into the world. The pain is temporary, and will inevitably be forgotten when you lay your loving, motherly eyes on her.
Have y'all had the Belgium brownie bites from Kroger? OMGoodness, they are RIDICULOUS!!!!
a "Christian" marriage? and how is that different from say an "Africa" marriage or a "Hindu" marriage?
Maybe the couple in the restaurant were talking to each other on their cell phones. My husband and spent a recent evening hanging out in the living room texting each other - really fun!
