Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

We received this as a gift from our registry. I didn't think too much about it when Joseph added it to the registry, but thought it might be a practical tool. Practical is an understatement. We've used it an exorbitant amount, and it's traveled with us everywhere (note the travel ...

Hospital Chux – Changing Pads

Sunday, December 26th, 2010

Friday, September 17th, 2010

I don't really care about this abbreviation. Though, I do feel strongly about people calling Joseph, "Joe." If people introduce themselves as "Joseph", "Deborah", ...

Making my own custom fit ear buds

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010

The headphones that came with my captivate are actually pretty decent, they were just a little uncomfortable for the longer train rides to and from work.  Ear bud type headphones are, in my opinion, best for loud areas like subway stations and rides over over the ear type of headphones. ...
