I think it would be neat. They go through clothes so fast at that age, and some of them are sooo cute!

I can't imagine having to relink all my carts but that would be way better than not having any carts linked at all.
How frustrating!!!! Hope you were able to get it solved.

I know, I really hope I don't wish I'd kept more. But at least you have pics of some of the outfits, that's a good thing.

So glad you were able to get it working again!!!

Sorry that she's going through all of that, but have fun with her when she gets there.

Hope he's going better now.

I am sooo tired today. I couldn't sleep last night, so of course I want to today. But I have things I need to get done, and I also want to be able to sleep tonight, too. I need to figure out what we're having for dinner tonight, too.

Yesterday afternoon we went to see my aunt's exchange student play tennis. She played at a town about 20 min from here. After that we had a PTO meeting. Busy afternoon/evening yesterday. Hopefully tonight will be more relaxing, even if Joey wants to go to tae kwon do. It's close, and only lasts for an hour, lol.

I have a Kindle Fire question for all of you that have one. I had an idea to get an eBook for my friend that has cancer. She's going to have to do both radiation and chemo, and once every 2 or 3 weeks will spend all day there pretty much during the treatments. I figured that a color eBook would be handy to have while she's there, plus it's small and light so that she can use it at home easily, too. I talked with Amy about it already, and plan on talking to 2 more of our friends, too. I'm thinking of asking people that have asked our friend what they can do to help her, if they'll contribute to it so it can be from all of us. And then they can always get either Amazon gift cards or B&N gift cards, whichever she'll need. (I think between the smaller group of us who are close, we can pick the one that will fit her needs the best, and then go from there). So my question is, what do you like about your Kindle Fire? Will it support the B&N app too, so she can get books from both places? Can you put a memory card in it to expand the memory? So far those are the only questions I can think of, lol. Thanks in advance for the help, too.

I wore contacts for years and years..loved them until I heard those ugly 3 words----at your age....

The vet gave our dog a 28 day medication and a steroid shot. He thinks he was bit by something and that he rubbed it and got infected. It already looks so much better. Glad I took him to the doc.

I don't know about the B&N app ... never looked for one.

I love everything about my Fire. I love that there are SO many books available and that I can get so many for free.

There is no extra memory card ability ... However.... all of the books that you get from Amazon are put onto the Cloud. That means that you don't have to have them on your Kindle unless you want to - and there is no limit to the Cloud storage.

What a day.

We did our normal errands and were very successful there (except for finding a pattern for bloomers in a size for Jaydin .....).

We are singing an arrangement of the hymn "In Remembrance" (Baptist Hymnal) in iQuest, so I wanted to spend some time helping them to understand The Lord's Supper and why we participate in it. I wanted them to taste the little bread thingies we use and whatnot. So, I started explaining it ... and found that there were a lot of questions about becoming a Christian. So, I went through the ABC's of becoming a Christian and went forward with the rest of the discussion. Two interesting things happened .... #1 - the kids were completely engaged in the conversation and discussion. These are HIGHLY active kids, and sitting still for any length of time is, honestly, beyond most of them. #2 - two kids came forward after our class was over to talk to me about becoming a Christian!!!! Wow. What an absolute blessing in there tonight. Had to be a God thing. Definitely made our night.

Congrats on getting started with CTMH. It will be awhile before I can order anything, either CTMH or SU. Hope your website goes well.

Glad the vet was able to help him feel better, poor guy.

I love everything about my Fire. I love that there are SO many books available and that I can get so many for free.

There is no extra memory card ability ... However.... all of the books that you get from Amazon are put onto the Cloud. That means that you don't have to have them on your Kindle unless you want to - and there is no limit to the Cloud storage.
Thanks for the info, I appreciate it. I talked to another one of our friends today, she said that our friend who has cancer isn't crazy about having an eReader, how can that be?!?! lol

Sounds like it was a wonderful experience for all of you.

Joey has half days today and tomorrow....lucky me. LOL He's got one thing left to do for homework, and it involves writing. He doesn't like writing, so it's going to take him forever this afternoon to do it. (It already took him 20 minutes this am, and he didn't write anything....) His conference is this afternoon, so maybe I can use that to have him settle down and decide to get his writing done.....

I figured that a color eBook would be handy to have while she's there, plus it's small and light so that she can use it at home easily, too. I talked with Amy about it already, and plan on talking to 2 more of our friends, too. I'm thinking of asking people that have asked our friend what they can do to help her, if they'll contribute to it so it can be from all of us. And then they can always get either Amazon gift cards or B&N gift cards, whichever she'll need. (I think between the smaller group of us who are close, we can pick the one that will fit her needs the best, and then go from there). So my question is, what do you like about your Kindle Fire? Will it support the B&N app too, so she can get books from both places? Can you put a memory card in it to expand the memory? So far those are the only questions I can think of, lol. Thanks in advance for the help, too.
I can't really answer your questions but tell you what I like best about the Fire is that I can do so much more than read..internet access, apps for games..she could even download library books from her home town library.

Got goosebumps from reading your reply. You never know when you have the power through God to witness.

That's why I was thinking she'd love one, but I need to convince her first.

It wasn't raining when I left the house to get Joey from the bus stop, but it sure was raining when I got to the bus stop, so of course the bus was very late. That's the kind of luck I have, lol. Apparently I'm old enough that "girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice" no longer applies, I really thought I was supposed to melt standing there in the rain, lol.

I am taking next few days off from work. DD and I are going to Blizzard Beach water park at Disney tomorrow. I hope it is warmer than it was today. We got some rain finally over the weekend. In fact, DH and I were on the motorcycle on Sat and got caught in it. Had to ride about 25 miles in the soaker! Needless to say, we didn't take our rain gear that morning when we left...
