I have been thinking lately, gratefully, about all the technology that makes my life easier and better. (I do feel sometimes like I am in a battle with technology to keep my kids safe/from rotting their brains but it is pretty great too.)
I've decided to proclaim this week Technology Week. Every day I will tell you about my favorite websites/apps/etc that make my life easier and better. Please share if you have some of your own. I am always in the market for easier and better.
There are all the general lovelies: having my calendar on my phone, checking in with friends and cousins on facebook and blogs. There's email. I love texting. It's all so nice and convenient.
But first, as Ammon would tell you (and I listen to that guy, even when he leaves cheeky comments on my blog), safety first.
I am glad I have Pinkie Pie's rugged cover. It lent inspiration for a name (and really, a name is imperative in a phone...you need it when you say, "Where's Pinkie Pie?" or "Mark, bring me Pinkie Pie."). But more importantly, I have dropped Pinkie Pie on her head often. The other day she went careening down the stairs. And that cover. Saved the day, I tell you.
Also you may remember the tragic Diet Coke Incident of 2011. As a result of spilled black gold on my keyboard, my z key doesn't work. Because of magical Adam, I can adapt. (He taught me how to work around it using special characters. That guy's a whiz and I can only type that word because of him.)
Speaking of Adam, he Thelma-proofed my laptop for me for Christmas.
A thin skin over the keys to prevent a Diet Coke Incident of 2012 and a hard plastic shell, intentionally selected to match Pinkie Pie. Because yes, I have also dropped my laptop on its head...I did (again) just last night.
I love technology. I love covers and cases designed to protect me from myself.
I love Adam who keeps everything humming along smoothly.
