Stuff

Here are some cool things I've come across lately:

1. The Lion/Caretaker Reunion

Did you guys see this?! I guess it was the most popular video on You Tube this summer. Our friends, Chris and Dell, introduced us to the video this weekend. I couldn't believe it was real, but it is.  


So heart-warming!

Here's the video:

2. A friend of mine forwarded to me this article called "Why Don't Friends with Kids Have Time?". A single woman writes in to a "Dear Abby" type of column asking why her stay-at-home mom friends don't have time. I will admit that when I was married with no kids and working 60-70+ hours a week, I made a similar comment to my boss about my neighbor who was a stay-at-home mom. Boy, am I eating my words now!!! I had so much more time then, even working that many hours a week, than I do now. I think all mothers can agree that having kids changes everything!  


3. I got my
Seventh Generation e-newsletter today and they featured this great article on winter housekeeping.

  1. Rachel...Oh wow!
    I went from almost crying stunned & happy tears at the Lion reunion to hooting with laughter at the "Why Moms Don't Have Time" article! Then I found a solution to a cleaning issue in your newsletter(trying to go Green, thank you very much!!)....thank you, thank you!
    The "time" article did leave one thing out though.....blogging time! ;)~ Thanks for it all!

  3. AHHH! That made me cry!!! (The lion, not the winter cleaning...although sometimes cleaning makes me want to cry).

    OK..I was just thinking TODAY that I can't believehow much more time I used to have! It is crazy, isn;t it? It doesn't make sense...like some kind of weird calculus problem.

  4. Hi Rachel,

    I've seen the lion video before. So touching-you got to just love animals! :)

    I saw a commercial the other day promoting having children and it was a mother and her baby, the baby is cooing and laughing and the mother is smiling so big and the end of the commercial says . . " A child changes everything."

    I started to laugh almost cry b/c i said that is SO true.
    Although, my commercial would go something like this . . a child throwing a tantrum on the floor, or poaring the box of rice all over the kitchen floor or throwing a toy and screaming, then have the end say, "A child changes everything!" :) haha.

    Anyhow, i'm rambling, but you get my gist-children are wonderful and can't imagine life w/out them at this point, but honestly they do change everything for the good and sometimes . . well, you know what i'm trying to say! :) haha . . .
