2013 – The Year of Improvement
Tag Archives: wordless wednesday
I had the great pleasure of hearing Dena Harris speak yesterday. Dena is a professional writer and writing coach here in our area. She’s funny and I think if she got to know me, we’d be fast friends. I mean cripes.. she has no kids – so her house is clean and could be my dream escape house and her CAT is on Twitter! Oh sorry.. that was a squirrel moment and I’m suddenly getting VERY far away from “wordless”. Dena had many great tips to offer our group but what she started off with was telling us about this video on changing how you say something can make a big impact. Watch it and then tell me how you can change your words to make an impact. Kristen
We all got involved today. Did you? Realized that at the next election, Mackenzie will be able to vote, Sydney will be in driver’s ed and Cassie will be a teenager at 13. That’s enough change for me, thank you. Kristen Are you raising a teen or a tween? Join the conversation over at Ten to Twenty Parenting!
If you know me, you know I can’t participate in Wordless Wednesday 100% effectively. I always have to add words. I found this at my mom’s house last week: It’s a compact mirror from the Up-and-Coming Airline – Piedmont Airlines which as most of us know is long-gone. Remember when airlines actually went the extra mile and gave things like this out? Kristen Are you raising a teen or a tween? Join the conversation over at Ten to Twenty Parenting!
Every spring it happens… we uncover the pool and they arrive. No, not the neighborhood kids or the food and beer toting friends. Our early guests are some of the smallest frogs (or toads? can’t remember the difference) who are the loudest things I’ve ever heard. You know how you love to open the windows and doors to let the spring air in? Yeah, we can’t do that because when we do, we can’t hear each other speak much less Alex Trebek on Jeopardy. Think I’m lying when I say they’re small? Here you go – I actually have sound and really wish I could figure out a way to insert it here just so you can hear how obnoxious these little fellas are…
