It’s Monday. Back to reality for me. It’s a bit harder this Monday than on other Mondays because hubby and I had a weekend all to ourselves(for the first time in years!). My mom graciously took our 3
monsters angels for the weekend and kept them busy. Hubby and I went away by ourselves and enjoyed some uninterrupted adult time. More on that trip later.
Now, it’s time for a list. I had so much fun joining Stasha at The Good Life last week that I decided to make another list.
10 Things/people/services that make life easier
1. I have to start with my hubby for being the technical genius he is and always solving any issues that crop up with all things computer related. I’m so lucky!
2. My Android phone, for always keeping me in the loop.
3. My Samsung Galaxy tablet, for keeping me in the loop, letting me carry a lighter load and that awesome Kindle app!!!
4. Skype, for letting me see my sister at least once a week and being able to watch my niece grow-up and see her take her first steps. It makes it easier to bear having her live all the way in Germany.
5. Walgreens online photo ordering. I always have an idea for Christmas presents for the grandparents ( they love the calenders with photos of the kids) and for being able to order prints online and pick them up an hour later. (For those last minute school projects!!!)
6. The dry cleaner because some days I give in and pay extra to have hubby’s dress shirts all nice and starched and wrinkle-free. As some of you know, ironing is my most dreaded and hated chore.
7. In the same vein as number 6. Here’s to wrinkle-free shirts… wash, dry and wear… that’s my kind of shirt!!!
8. Our lawn guys… I don’t have a green thumb and hubby is white collar all the way when it comes to outside chores. Without our lawn guys the grass would be waist high and the hedges at about 10 feet, neither of which our home owners association would appreciate.
9. My Libman Freedom Spray Mop. I am a bit anal when it comes to my floors. This mop is great because it comes with washable microfiber pads and a refill bottle for your own cleaning solution. You don’t need to constantly replace batteries or buy the throw-away pads. I like that, it’s better for the environment and cheaper on my wallet. Plus, it does a great job cleaning the floors.
10. This last one is a service that I wish was still available~ the Publix grocery delivery service~ it was so great to have. You ordered your groceries online, paid a small delivery fee and a few hours later food was at your door. It came in handy when the kids were really little and it took forever just to get ready for a quick grocery run. I’m sure many of us moms, especially the ones with newborns, would love to be able to have groceries delivered.
