The Tech Mom

Check out my new blogging venture over at The Tech Mom.  Don't worry, I'll always be Married To The Pastor and don't plan on leaving this blog, but my passion for technology needs an outlet, so the geek in me has created "The Tech Mom".  I'm still working on site design, but for now, I'm starting with a few posts over there, so take a peek and see what you think!  The current address is, but when I'm done setting everything up, I'll have an easier address to remember.  In the mean time, I'm open to any and all ideas for technology blogging topics.  Hope to see you there...

P.S.  If you're interested, the picture above is the new Motorla Xoom tablet PC--rivaling the iPad and coming in February.  Decisions, decisions!

Is Technology Helping or Hurting Our Kids?

 This is a sad, but true commentary.  Of course I understand that a two year old isn't going to ride a bike anyway, but the disturbing part is that once that kid is old enough to learn to ride a bike, he's too obsessed with his PS3 and Wii to go outside and do it.  If anyone's on the side of technology, it's me, but for heaven's sake people...let's make our best effort to raise well rounded children!  January is Get-Your-Butt-Off-The-Couch-And-Go-Outside-And-Throw-A-Snowball month, so let's pry our smartphones out of our children's hands, turn off Angry Birds, and go do something active.  (Okay, I might have made that last part up, but still....)

It's hard to know what to say about two days at Disneyland, so here are a few pictures to say it for me.

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirates life for me!

The Silver Lining

 No matter how hard you try, things just don't turn out like you plan.  I had a plan for last night when I got home from work.  I was going to eat dinner, do a little laundry, and work on a couple writing projects while my son played with his friend who was spending the night.

My first problem was that managing two little boys eating, showering, getting ready for bed, etc..., is substantially harder than managing one.  There is school today, so it's not like this was a Friday night free-for-all slumber party. My second problem came with the words, "Uh, Mom....I need your help in here."  Not good.

Son and said friend had embedded silly putty into son's hair (actually scalp), so I spent my evening shaving son's head.  Not my idea of a fun.

But, not to be discouraged, though my son is nearly bald, I console myself with this thought:  When we go to Disneyland later this week, it's highly likely that he will be confused for a sick child and we'll be ushered to the front of the lines.  Every cloud has a silver lining....

The Happiest Place on Earth

Three days until my son and I leave the snow and ice and head for sunshine and palm trees.  Ok, well, I hope there's sunshine.  I figure since there's been so much rain in California already, that they are due for a really long, sunny streak.  I'm holding out hope that it will happen while we're there.  If not, we'll just have to have fun at the Drippiest Place on Earth.  Either way, it's going to be a blast.  We're leaving The Pastor home to hold down the fort, but we'll keep him apprised of the fun via picture messages and phone calls (ain't technology great?) You can check out my video link at the top of the page for video uploads from the trip.  I'm looking for votes on everyone's favorite Disneyland attraction.

Career Options

 Things have been a bit tough at work lately and over Christmas, I had a three week "Holiday Furlough".  While I was home, I pondered options for a new career.  Here are my top picks at this time.

1. Professional Yoyoer
2. Go-Kart Racer
3. Ice Cream Taster
4. Ambien Tester
5. Snuggie Model

After reviewing all my options, I think I'll do well to pray for patience and remain in my career in Information Technology.  Unless, of course, God opens the door for me into my real career of choosing....retirement.

Here's to contentment in 2011!
