It is FINALLY warm by me Laughing

1. Do you have allergies to pollen? What are your symptoms?

2. Did you do anything fun for Mother's Day?

3. When it is humid, does your hair go straight or frizz up?

Don't you mean opthalmologist?  If you're going to come off as this big expert, shouldn't you be referencing the actual doctor and not the guy who's only trained to give you an eye test?

Since buying the iPad, I've dropped it from about 5 feet off the ground onto my concrete patio.  And when Cyduck had his last UTI, I discovered it when he peed on the iPad while it was charging.  total damage to the iPad?  $0  Because of the Otterbox it's in.  I did have to spend a good bit of time cleaning off the Otterbox from the cat pee, but there wasn't a bit of damage from the drop onto the concrete patio.

Like I said, it might have been an $80 cover, but it's been worth every single penny I paid.

If you're all about growth and maturity or furthering your life by advancing your knowledge of technology, how was it you were all confused about why I'd pay $800 for an iPad.  shouldn't you have KNOWN that an iPad of that price comes with increased functionality and storage capacity?  Or did all your growth and advancement happen since yesterday/

I agree, that you don't HAVE to upgrade but why not if you are not paying anything extra?

Not true.  The contract for my phone ran out 2 years ago.  I still have cell service, I still have my data plan, I still have Personal Hotspot, I still have unlimited messaging and my monthly bill is still the same it was when I signed the original contract more than 4 years ago.  I may likely upgrade phones in the next year or two, but that's more a function of the phone having a 4 year old battery (and the hassle involved in battery replacements on iPhones) than the fact that I'm so vapid I have to have a new phone every two years lest I feel all deprived.

Of course, I'm not the one actually stupid enough to pay twice as much as the cost of a regular iPod just so everyone will know I like a band.

Talk about translation rollmops, Lol If you would have written that your priority was for your kid to have fun then it would have made more sense than this,

"I know, and you still do not understand that my priority was not having a good time"

Vey true

The placement of the "not" is perfectly clear. I would venture that it is not my English that is coming up short here, but it is quite amusing that you seem to think so.

I have a friend that is already a million dollar producer in real estate after only being in the business for about a year.  We met eachother when I lived in Des Moines and we are still friends on facebook, I think she is good at what she does b/c she is a people person and believes in what she is doing and I think that is the crux for a lot of professions, If you don't like what you're in or what you're doing then change it.  If you love it then you're going to thrive and excel at it.

Yes it is as that is the relationship you were making with your child.

I agree. -------- I would think that the proof is in the pudding, so to speak.

From the H&M FAQ: 

"Do H&M sunglasses come with UV-protection?

Yes, all H&M sunglasses have a special UV filter which locks out all UV radiations (UVA and UVB)."

Aye, Public speaking is something I dreaded taking in school then when I had to use it again in ASL I was especially nervous all over again. Sign language was different though, Lol.

Again, for years I bought cheap. I can definately tell the difference And I do think with many things, you get what you pay for.
