Thankful Thoughts – My Phone

Thankful thoughts about my phone.Today’s Thankful Thoughts post is being typed on my phone. All the artwork is being generated on my phone. It’s only appropriate for me to be expressing thankfulness for my phone.

(edited: I did not post this until I got home because I needed to make sure the post looked right.  it’s the first time i ever did a post completely on the phone and i didn’t trust the process. with a little html knowledge or advance planning, it’s totally do-able.)

Top 10 reasons I’m thankful for my phone.

My Kids Make Me Laugh – Mustaches

my kids make me laugh from thishappymom.comMy kids make me laugh.  When I started this weekly feature, I was a little worried about finding content each week.  I had visions of chasing my kids around the house with a camera as I begged them to “do something funny.”  I had a few odd dreams about eavesdropping on other families to find funny things they said.

So far, my kids have continued to be funny.  More accurately, I continue to find small everyday moments to treasure.

Sometimes, it’s what they say.  Their dialog can be priceless.  Earlier today, they were trying to convince me that they invented Popeye just to trick kids into eating spinach.  Just last week, they were claiming that zombie dinosaurs were definitely scarier that vampire giant robots.

At other times (like today) it’s a more visual humor.

Oh GoGo, you make me laugh with your silly mustache.  You crack me up with your “old man” routine.

Site Migration Update

Greetings from geekville.  Migrating my sight from being wordpress hosted to self hosted has been a learning experience.  I lost my existing theme and had to find another one.  I’ve had to quickly learn about widgets and plugins and gizmos and thingys.  I’ve been neck-deep in learning about slugs and SEO and all kinds of stuff that until recently I knew very little about. In a nutshell:

  • I’m not done, but it’s getting closer.
  • I still need to change my login information and website address on a bunch of different social media platforms.
  • I’m locked out of my new email address at the moment.  Hubby mentioned something about server issues.
  • I think I’ve settled on a theme
  • I desperately need a logo and a few other graphic elements.
  • Hubby absolutely rejected my idea of giving him his own email address.  Apparently being knowns as “the happy dad at wasn’t manly enough for him.
  • My kids are fascinated by the whole process.
  • I’m quite proud of figuring out how to add my twitter feed back into the mix.  it was my very first thing to figure out on my own.

By Monday I should have most of the behind the scenes stuff sorted out.  At that point I’ll be ready to face the world.

I have a new email address:  susan (at) thishappymom (dot) com

What are you doing this weekend?  Is it more fun that migrating a website?

Amazon Instant Video – Now Even Cooler on my iPad

All geeked out about amazon prime video iPADI’ve already explained why I love Amazon Instant Video paired with Amazon Prime.  But now, it’s even better.  I get to watch great television, commercial free, for no cost, from anywhere I have an internet connection.

I’ve also explained how much I love Amazon Prime and their Amazon Mom program.  Discounts on stuff I need (or needed when the kids were in diapers) and I get it shipped to my house for free.

Now, my life is complete.  Apple and Amazon worked out their differences using whatever legal and marketing ninja super powers were required.  And… wait for it…

Not only can I watch all those cool Amazon Instant Videos, I can watch them on my iPAD!!!!
