Happy New Year! We had a nice New Year’s Eve. Our party plans fell through, so we stayed home and celebrated as a family. Annie insisted that we “get fancy,” so she and I put on sparkly clothes and did each other’s hair and makeup. She gave me a LOT of gold glitter eyeshadow, which I didn’t even know we had in our house and am planning on “accidentally” misplacing ASAP. A week and several showers later and I swear I’m still finding tiny pieces of glitter on my face. Glitter is the worst!
Both kids go back to school tomorrow *cue singing angels.* It’s been nice not having a schedule these last two weeks but they really need to go to school and be around other people now.
Around The ‘Net
Last week, our doorbell chime (the one that’s inside the house) decided to stop working mid-ring. Because it was mid-ring, it was stuck in this unbelievably annoying loud buzzing position and I seriously wanted to go all Phoebe Buffay on it.
When I was looking online to order a replacement chime, I discovered that there are actually doorbells that will ring with whatever you want. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find one that’s compatible with my Ring doorbell camera, but if one of you want to be alerted to guests with a rock song or whatever, get this doorbell and live my dream by programming it to play “Ring My Bell.”
~Annie really likes making stop-motion movies with her iPod, so I bought her this little tripod Stickbot set for her birthday so her videos won’t be shaky. This is a great free app (there’s also a paid version but we haven’t tried it) that Annie uses to make her movies!
~I just downloaded the Soothe app, which provides on-demand massages right in your home. If you haven’t tried it, here’s $20 toward your first massage! You. Are. Welcome.
~Two words: interactive Porg.
Happy Sunday, everyone!
