Tweets, Germs, Opinions, Cameras and a Swiffer

What I learned this week is hosted by JoLynn at Musings of housewife.


This week was eventfully uneventful. HA! We did a lot, we blogged about it and we moved on to the next. However I did learn a couple of things:

1. I learned that keeping a pig for a pet may not be a good idea - and I am glad I don't - I also learned that the OCD, germophobic side of this mommy will most likely be picking up some of those paper masks tomorrow (just in case)

2. Consider following @overhearddenver this tweeter is asking all of us Coloradans to tweet things we "overhear" when out and about doing our daily thing. Now come on you all know you eavesdrop - so SPILL IT and share with the rest of us! Use #ohdenver with your tweets!

3. I really enjoyed the Earth movie and am motivated to pull out our Planet Earth DVD's and give them a go in the player again! And I can STILL completely disagree with my friend and neighbor on her skewed view of this movie and we will still be friends, and I will still tell her she is wrong and she will still tell me I am and it will still be ok.

4. I learned that it is really stupid to go a downtown attraction with your children and some friends and only have your Camera Phone with you...ARGH - more on that later-

5. My swiffer sweeper WILL pick up WET coffee grounds when I hap-hazardly toss the full filter into the garbage and only half of makes it in the basket.

I also learned that I can be completely exhausted and yet wide awake at the same time, ok I already knew this - but it has been hitting home more and more lately. Nap time anyone?

First, why were you up at 2:30?? lol

I love the swiffer! It is also picks up the little pieces of glitter that fall everywhere during craft projects!

Yeah with all the news about swine flu, I think a pet pig is not the way to go. You've been busy girlfriend.

Oh I hate it when I'm caught at a photo opp with only my camera phone! Or phone camera, I guess I should say. :-)

I love all of the swiffer products!

Have a great day!

This week is kicking my behind. That is a funny idea about twittering things you hear on the street. There is a really funny blog that records what people say on the subways of NY. Very funny stuff!

Swiffers are amazing!

XOXO

swiffer sweeper - I must get that! I only have the regular stick for dry and wet. interesting.

meanwhile, the swine flu keeps inching closer and closer to philadelphia. I may get some of those mask as well.

You know, if you had a pet pig, it would probably pick up your wet coffee grounds, too...

Lori said...

Yes to nap time! I enjoyed your review of Earth and might have to check it out. It's at the IMAX theater downtown and I know that big screen will blow my big girl's mind! :)

I always wanted a pet pig named Penelope who snarfed pie and peanut butter.

Nap time sounds so good right now. I know what you mean about not having the camera when you need it. My camera phone is full and I don't know how to delete any of the old pics and I have not been remembering to bring my camera along lately.

Love the idea of twittering what you overhear.

I'm nervous about the swine flu (we just got our first case in our county) but not yet worried enough to break out the surgical masks!

Jen said...

I love Swiffer! We used to be able to test the new swiffer products before they hit the stores (I worked for the company that makes them)...I always felt so special!

I absolutely love having friends that you have a good, exuberant conversation with and not come to any agreement, but know that you are still friends. Unfortunately, it's hard to find someone like that!

Lindsay said...

Great lessons this week! Boo on only having the camera phone! Yay for the swiffer!

Bonnie said...

Oh I HATE when I spill wet coffee grounds..and I do it often! Good to know about the Swiffer.

I'm curious what Paige didn't like about the movie. Mark and Con were dissappointed because they had see a lot of it on other shows. It was still beautiful I thought. It's a good testament to friendship that you can agree to disagree :)
