Ten Make it Easier

I had visions of getting into a disciplined blogging groove last week while the kids were on Spring Break with their dad.  However, it turned out that having an extended play-date with my significant other, M, overruled all regulation of activity.

Thankfully, I can ease back into things with a relatively easy Monday Listicles.  Terri, of Terri Sonoda, came up with today's topic, "10 Things That Make Life Easier."  I know that the great blogging community created by Stasha at The Good Life, is one thing that certainly makes Monday easier, and I am grateful.

Ten that make life easier (in no particular order):

Car – It’s old, but it works. The bus line here isn’t extensive. I feel for those I see waiting at the stop.

Mini Shop Vac – Collects all the stray dog hair left on EVERYTHING by my three Chihuahuas.

Samsung Epic Smartphone – I rarely use it as a phone; I don’t like to talk. I use it for texting, Twitter, and playing Word Feud and my latest addiction, Draw Something.

Toshiba Laptop – I’m on it now, later, and a moment ago.

Google – I look up everything.  And I enjoy the Droid OS on my smartphone.

Spotify – It helps me stay connected to my teen by sharing music.  And I love music.

Microwave – I’m no chef.  Everything would be raw if it weren’t for the ol’ thing.

Bank Card – I don’t even want to imagine life without automatic teller machines and online shopping.

My Dogs – They make me smile.

My Girls and M – They make it all worthwhile.

    How did I forget microwave? The minute our breaks, I'm headed to the store to buy another. I can't live without it. Agree with all the others.

  9. So glad to know you're a Samsung Epic Smartphone fiend too Kim! I am loving my galaxy S2. :)

  10. my trusty toshiba has lasted five years and counting... my husband keeps telling me to give it up but I feel like i wouldn't know where the keys are on another laptop. glad to see yours made the list!

  11. I love this sweet, happy list. Google, laptops and smartphones - all so awesome. I can't remember what life was like when I didn't just use my atm card everywhere for everything. Glad you had a good week, an extended play-date with a significant other over rules all in my book!
