Why I don't like technology

So it's 12:11 AM! 12:11 AM!!!! If I didn't have a computer, I'd be in bed now. If I didn't have this blog, I'd be sound asleep! and did I mention warm? It's flippin cold here. It's always cold here, but especially at 12:13 in the morning! This is a very good reason indeed not to like technology.
I'm an all or nothing kind of girl. I can't just do 5 minutes. I started at 9:00 pm and as you can see, I haven't done anything impressive on this blog. Just added a few pictures and a few captions. Then of course, I have to check out and see what everyone else has on their blog and then not only am I exhausted, but now I have to feel like crap because everyone else seems to have these AMAZING blogs and these AMAZING stories and oh so incredible pictures and then I think "What the heck am I doing? I can't compete!" Yes, I do think we all secretly compete with each other. Not in a mean way, but you can't tell me you don't think "oh! how cute! I want that on my page", or "Why didn't I think of that?" Why do you think they put those links on the gadgets for? For people like me who 'have to have it!'
I really love this blogging stuff. It's like scrapbooking, but so much faster and nothing to clean up afterwards. You can even steal other people's pictures and put them on your own page!!!! Hello! You can also stalk other people and read their every thought, see their every move. We all know how curious I am. It's a dream come true, really. I never thought I would, but I so do! That is why I don't like technology.

New Beginnings

Mercedes is in the Young Women's program at church which is the equivalent to a youth group. The other night their leader put on something called "New Beginnings" where they introduce the new girls coming into the program and to review what the program is about and have the girls rededicate themselves to the young women's "values"; faith, individual worth, virtue, integrity, etc. Their leader, Jalyn, had such a cute idea. She did a Pep rally theme. It was so cute. The girls made up cheers and created pennants with the young women's values on them. They also dressed in sports related items. I must say that I am so happy that my children have these types of programs in their lives and more importantly, that they have people, leaders who really care about them!
The girls got to take these frames home...

Roci's Valentine Tea

Roci wanted to have a Valentine's Day Party. I have to admit that I wasn't to excited about the idea at first. I haven't had much energy lately. I did compromise with her though. It had to be super small and simple and I was the one to plan it. Roci does not know the meaning of simple or small. If you have been to her birthday parties, you would know what I mean.
I'm happy to announce that it was very successful. Roci definately made it worth my while when she came into the diningroom to see the set up and said "Oh mom, I love it! It looks so elegant! I love you!" Of course add the high-pitched squeal and bouncing around and you'll have a good idea of her reaction! I want to extend a thank you to Noel for lending us her tea set and to Mercedes for baking her yummy peanutbutter coookies, for doing the face painting, and helping make bath balms and the cleanup!You were amazing! Thank you Gage as well for helping to clean up! By the way Roc, who did your hair??? It looks so good!
