Happiness Is...


It's true...I have Wi-Fi now. I feel like the kid in the candy shop; there are ENDLESS possibilities.

The hubby and I were joking last night about the price of getting Wi-Fi, and I said, "So what if the kids can only eat crackers for breakfast, lunch, and dinner...I CAN BLOG WHILE I'M ON THE TOILET!!!". Too much information? Sorry. And in case you're worried, no, I'm not blogging while on the toilet (but I can't say I never will), and my kids just had peanut butter and jelly for lunch (they just had the crackers for breakfast...heehee).

The other thing I love about this, is that I don't have to interrupt my working husband to Google something I'm trying to research while writing. I do most of my writing on a laptop, that until yesterday, did not have Internet. This is how our conversation would go:

Me (peeking through the door to my husband's office): Babe? Can I Google something?
Him (pulling the headphones off of his head): Huh?
Me: Can I Google something?
Him: Babe, I'm really under a time crunch here.
Me: Babe, please, it'll just take a sec.
Him: Alright, I have to use the bathroom anyway.
Me: Awesome.

No more potty break Googling here, folks. I have WI-FI!

I have found one fatal flaw, however, with my new wireless capabilities. And that flaw is THIS SITE that Lynette over at Chatterbox Chit Chat introduced to me. This is like crack for jigsaw puzzle addicts. I can't stop playing...I barely pulled myself away from it to write this blog. MUST. DO. PUZZLES. I wonder if they have sites for Sudoku or crossword puzzles, because my Dad would be all over that. Hmmm.

So a BIG shoutout to my awesome hubby, for making all my wireless dreams come true. I love you!

What are some of your favorite websites?


  1. Congratulations! And I would not blame you one bit if you blog while you're on the toilet.

  2. Lol, I love that! "Potty break Googling" He he he. You kind of have to blog while you're on the toilet if you want to keep up with everything. Truly. I love those jigsaw puzzles, too. I have to stay away from there or I get even more distracted :)

  3. Hmmm...I'm not big on websites. But I am big on wireless! My hubby and I no longer have to fight over internet either, which is good since Fantasy Football season is just around the corner and hubby and I would probably break out into wrestling matches over the internet. :)

  4. Yea! Whohoo! Congrats on Wi-Fi.

    I was actually considering locking myself in the bathroom to complete a writing assignment, but not using the facilities at the same time, hey a mom's got to do what a mom's got to do.

    I'm totally addicted to I love Strike-a-match.

    Alright, I must get my rear in gear and write, write, write.

  5. God Bless you. Wi-Fi. When will I ever catch up to this century. Loved the toilet remarks! :D
    I agree, we need to meet (preferably not on the toilet. :D :D )

  6. I loved getting wireless too! It was awesome and still is to be mobile and carry my lap top everywhere! (Not the bathroom,yet!)

  7. I love wireless! Oh, my, I would be lost without it. Congrats!

    Favorite websites, huh? I've been blogging so much lately, I'm not sure how many actual websites I go to. Most of my web surfing is for work or when I blog, then I'm just clicking from link to link.

    Hope you had a great Monday!!

  8. Oh boy, you're diving into the wi-fi abyss! :)

    And OH NO, you did not just introduce me to a puzzle site. Oh no. I'm in trouble. But I can't help but check it out. Oh no...

  9. Susan - Thank you. I feel guilt free about doing #3 (that's blogging while doing number 1 or 2 - too much again? Sorry ;P)
    Cindy - If you all don't hear from me for a few days, you'll know where I am! :)
    Katie - I will mourn the loss of our husbands to fantasy football season with you.
    Diane - YES...a mom's gotta do what a mom's gotta do!
    Wendy - you stay in whatever century you're in, because you are PERFECT in it!
    Jody - Go ahead, I give you permission to use your wi-fi in the bathroom, and if anyone asks, you can blame it on me! :P
    Heather - I am BEYOND excited. I actually don't do a lot of websites either, so I was curious if I was missing out on any other gems BESIDES!
    Heather - consider me drowned...and I SO DID just introduce you to that site...if I don't hear from you for a few weeks I'll send out the search party :)

    As always, thank you for the comments. You all are just fantastic! I'm off to bed...but maybe just ONE more puzzle :)

  10. A valuable post on happiness
