50 Ordinary Things


"Symbols are just symbols; the thing's the thing."

--Howard Ogden


Ordinary things are often taken for granted. Governments do not commission studies about them, museums are not erected in their honor and people rarely put up a fight when an ordinary thing is in danger of being lost.

This is the vexation and the virtue of the ordinary thing -- which is all the more reason to save them in the next millennium.

Pros & Cons of Cellphone Usage for Kids...

Does Your Child Need A Cell-Phone?

PROS
  • It's the most convenient way to stay in contact.
  • It doesn't have to be all or nothing. Limit the use.
  • It can help your child build & maintain friendships. Like it or not, other kids have cell phone and rely on them to communicate.
  • It has free long-distance. Kids can keep in touch with faraway friends and relatives without racking up long distance charges on your landline.
  • It offers a chance to teach responsiblity. Assign kids the task of keeping track of the minutes they use - or chipping in for the service.
CONS
  • It can lead to huge bills... Extra minutes & features like text messaging and cool ringtones can break the bank.
  • It can be a distraction in the classroom... In fact, many schools have banned the use of cell-phones during class.
  • It's yet more screen time. Think your child already spends too much time in front of the TV, computer & playing video games? A cell phone is another electronic gadget that could add to the problem.
  • It's easily misplaced or broken and it is expensive to replace or repair.

I have a Definitely Not-So Ordinary Life, And I Need Someone's Help!

I am going to jail... for at least a 1 year... I violated my probation on a larceny 4 charge (using credit cards and not paying them)... my sentence was 1 year suspended after 3 years probation... but just like I felt when I accepted the deal - I knew then that eventually I would end up in jail... and now there is no denying it... it is happening... I think I will be going in February or March...

So please help me if you can... I don't want my blog to disappear... if someone; anyone is willing to update my blogs at least monthly, then when I come home - they will still be up and running... and what would be even better - is if that someone, anyone - would let me write to them - and then they can even post what I am doing, how I am doing in prison...

ANY TAKERS?

Blessed With A Mess

Blessed
By Tammy Laws Lawson

A friend and I were standing in line at the grocery store the other day, and I was telling her how lazy my children were. I had come in from work that morning, and like most times, my house was wrecked.

"I believe children nowadays are just out for what they can get. I bend over backwards for them, and they can't even help keep our house clean. It wouldn't bother me so, but it's the woman who looks bad if the house is a mess."

"Do you know how blessed you are?" a woman behind us asked.

"I would love to go home and find my house a mess. I wouldn't mind my carpet being ruined or the dishes left everywhere. I wouldn't mind the dirty clothes being piled high or the many socks to match. I wouldn't even mind anyone talking about my dirty home. Matter of fact, I would love it. I would dearly love to kick my way through the house just to get to my kids and be able to hug them, kiss them and tell them how much I love them.

You see, my two children were killed in an auto accident and now it's just my husband and me.

My house stays clean, my clothes stay put up, the dishes are done. There are no fingerprints on my walls, no mysterious spots on my carpets. There are no sounds of arguing, no slamming doors, no laughter, no 'I love you Mom.' So you see, you are very blessed. What I would give to be going through what you are right now. How I would love to be able to hold my kids, wipe away their tears, share their dreams. Just to watch them play. If I had my children, I wouldn't care how my house looked. I would be happy just to have them."

Now if you come into my house and see a big old mess, you can think bad thoughts if you want, but I feel greatly blessed.
