Unfortunately, so does everyone else. :meh: And we all happen to use the same few ringtones… so when we hear the phone ring with its familiar “Marimba,” “Timba,” “Strum,” or “Chime,” we all reach for our phones. Ugh. I have purchased a few […]

Feast or famine, as the saying goes. When it comes to telemarketers, it’s always feasting time. We’ve slowly incorporated more cell phones now that the kids are older. We now have five cell phones and one VoIP phone, and I’ve really enjoyed the relative quiet. Before, our landline would literally ring off the hook with […]

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TracFone for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. It was inevitable. All the kids want their own cell phones. I have FOUR kids. Plus there’s me and my husband. That’s a lot of cell phones, you know that? The husband and I have had […]

Any of you Gen Xers remember Tron? I always think of that movie when I see these gadgets: I finally figured out what that thing is. It’s a Bluetooth headset! I am a computer whiz, but when it comes to cell phones and mp3 players and all that “little” gadgetry, I’ve never been very interested. […]
