I know...I know....

I hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving, we did.........and I have no pictures today, first time I have ever blogged without pictures but my computer is giving me grief...dang thing keeps saying Im out of room, whatever that means, says I need to free up space.....well, I have deleted everything but the kitchen sink, and it still keeps saying that, my SIL says maybe I deleted something I shouldnt have,lololol............well, it may be time to hit the sales and land a brand new one cuz this one is ancient, and maybe thats the problem. I think its at least 5 years old, and isnt that ancient in the puter realm?
OK, enough of that, Im irritated enough, old women shouldnt have to deal with new technology.........well, Im really not all THAT old,lololol..........but as we were sitting around the Thanksgiving table last night we were talking about what we DIDNT have when we were young, was funny.....we talked about how we didnt have pantyhose, we had to use garter belts and nylons, remember that? and I remember when there was no microwave, and no pampers, and of course no computers or cell phones. The young ones were stunned.........what in the world did we do with out all that stuff...........truth is, we may have just be better off. Less complicated, less stressed. I NEVER had to stress about not enough space on my hard drive. Or try to figure my cell phone out. What about you, was it a less stressful time???
This is black friday and Im on my way to work, I pray its busy, our economy needs it. I will work all weekend, then I will catch up with you Monday, I know I promised pictures of all the goodies from my trip to Temecula, I promise I will get those up, I after all do have another computer, a lovely laptop I got last year, however, I have to figure out how to get my pictures onto it..............awwwwwwwwwww.....another thing to stress about.

We didn't even have a house phone til I was about 16!! Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined back then, that my children would go to school with their phone in their pocket LOL!!! Don't get me wrong ... technology/progress can be fun, and I love that I can contact my DD1 in UK so easily. But life was certainly much simpler and less stressful back in the "olden days". Hmmm, maybe I was born about 50 years too late LOL... ;o).

Yeah, maybe it was less stressful. For one thing, you had to take it easy on Sunday because all the stores were closed, athough there are some new inventions I just wouldn't want to give up, like the garage door opener and digital camera (my two personal favorites).


P.S. - I've just posted a new "Peppermint Twist" giveway and I'd love to have you enter!

Yes less stressful. Didn't have to carry so much around with you. My handbag didn't have my mobile phone, digital camera , spare batteries,charger for batteries and all those cards (credit, debit, store cards) Also didn't have to remember all those PIN numbers and passwords etc.

happy happy thanksgiving to you!!!! i could not live without my microwave and my keurig. i have a love/hate relationship with the cell phone and blackberry.
shopping, our stores and mall have been mobbed, and i happily have been doing my part to keep the economy going :)

I miss the SIMPLICITY of some things. I don't own a cell phone. Although I will need one for texting. I don't do phones! Nope! I give Kudos for computers... it's my avenue of communication with family & friends and BLOGGING :O)
But I do miss simplicity! Gotta have my microwave though. Re-heats in a jiffy! Too young for the garters and nylons, but I remember my Mom telling me that she remembers when Pampers came out!
Now for your pictures and hard drive space... do you back up and burn to cd's? That will save space. Also defrag your computer and that will help! ps: we're practically neighbors. Your in RC- I'm in Hesperia! Small world! :O) PS: I collect Raggedy's too! Just finished one for the Polka Dot/Rick Rack swap!
Happy Holidays!
