If You Give a Kid an iPod

You never never get your computer again! My folks gave The Boy his birthday present 2 weeks early. He spent 3 hours Tuesday night loading it, then probably another ten yesterday. He got up at 11, was on till I kicked him off at 5, then was on the rest of the evening. There are CDs everywhere - 3 stancks by the computer, two more huge stacks on the breakfast bar, even some by the TV. We will be saving money on burned CDs now, though.

NOT TODAY. I have to write on BD, and I have to do it on the computer, because I'm adding in places. I did manage to judge all my Heart to Heart entries and type in some of Ghost Hunters on the AlphaSmart. And I read RWR cover to cover, after which I managed to bookmark some contests to enter. I watched Miss Potter and Barnyard. Yes, the udders on the boy cows were distracting. AND I finished Michelle's Irish Warrior - it was SO GOOD!

The dh came home with the coolest thing - a cookie bouquet! One of the clients he makes commercials for found out his birthday was last week and sent him a cookie bouquet with stuff like a director's chair, a TV monitor, slates with "Cut" and "Action" on them, and one with popcorn. I thought that was incredibly thoughtful, to go to the trouble for something so personal.

It never did rain yesterday - in fact was very pleasant - but it's raining now. So, good day to sit at the computer.

My dh wants an iPod, but I know so little about them, I'm almost afraid to go for it for fear I'll buy something wrong. :0 Maybe for his birthday...

So glad you enjoyed Her Irish Warrior! :) Hope to see you at RWA this year.

And ohh, does that cookie bouquet look YUMMY.

I loved Her Irish Warrior too, Mary! I remember when DD first got her iPod. Tell your DS not to mow with it unless it's in a protective case. DD's got too hot and broke. :-(

Michelle, I have no clue how to use the iPod, but the dh and my baby brother and SIL all have them and love them, so they can't be toooo tough.

I wish we still had those cookies.....

I passed on the word about not mowing. He was quite bummed ;)
